Barry Hicks Essex Magician attended Countdown to the 2012 Olympic Games ELBN Event at Dagenham & Redbridge F.C. Tuesday 25th January 2011

Barry attended the Countdown to the 2011 Games Networking Event on Tuesday 25th January 2011 at Dagenham & Redbridge F.C. There was a large turnout and I would guess 200 to 250 people and there were

presentations re London 2012 and Compete For Update which was very enlightening also a Living The Dream Charity Presentation which involved two young athletes and their training for the games. A very worthwhile charity which needs the support of local business’s and local people.

There was also a question and answer session

re Compete For facilitated by Mark Kass of the

East London Business Centre. On a personal note I made some useful contacts which may lead to some interesting projects in the future.
