Special Guests

The brief introductions to our guests below have not been updated since the event.

Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson

Baroness Tanni  Grey-Thompson was born in Cardiff and christened 'Carys Davina'. Her sister, Sian referred to her as "tiny" when she first saw her, pronouncing it "tanni" and the nickname stuck! Her phenomenal success is known to us all; total Paralympic Medal tally of 11 gold, 4 silvers and 1 bronze and many other sporting achievements. In 2010 Tanni became an Independent Crossbench Peer in the House of Lords.  As a working peer Tanni uses her experience and knowledge during debates in the House and she has spoken on a range of issues including Disability Rights, Welfare Reform, and of course, Sport. She has received honorary degrees, including Honorary Doctorates from numerous universities, for example from Oxford University and the University of Cardiff.

Gethin Jones

Gethin Jones is a TV and radio broadcaster. Having presented a variety of live shows on S4C, Gethin boarded the Blue Peter ship where he had many adventures including being the first ever civilian to finish the UK Royal Marine Commando 30 mile Yomp.  From one extreme to another, he later danced his way to the semi-final of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing and he’s been a part of the show ever since.  He has presented a multitude of high profile TV shows and from June 4th, you will be able to wake up with Gethin as he starts the brand new Hits Radio Breakfast show!  He has an events company and is a partner of Leaf Hospitality. He is a self-confessed rugby geek, taking his knowledge to Celebrity Mastermind. Gethin and his best friend Sion both have autistic nephews. Inspired by them, they have set up their own Autism charity called ‘Nai’. Their ambition is to build a much needed school for Autistic Children in Wales.
