Following on from Mathilde’s earlier successes in hockey, we were delighted to hear that Mathilde was nominated by her hockey club, Hampstead & Westminster, to attend a Young Leaders’ Conference at the Olympic Park during the recent Hockey World Cup.
The young leaders were treated to lunch followed by presentation by BUCS (university sport) current England ladies captain Alex Danson MBE and retired former England player, Helen Richardson-Walsh MBE.
The leaders then worked in groups to look at the future of hockey with a Dragons’ Den style challenge; the groups then had to present their ideas to the current directors of England Hockey.
The conference was followed by complimentary tickets to watch the ladies World Cup matches, Spain vs Belgium and Argentina vs Holland.
Well done Mathilde, on your continuing enthusiasm and success!
