Britain’s first Taekwondo Olympic Champion Jade Jones OBE claimed the 57kg title aged 19. Claiming Olympic Gold whilst also being the reigning Youth Olympic Champion, Jade Jones has become a nation’s sweetheart, something she uses to her advantage and discusses within her role as an Olympic Speaker. Welsh born and bred Jones is ferociously patriotic, and was awarded BBC‘s Wales Sports Personality of the Year for her 2012 exploits; her wide range of accolades at such a young age increase her suitability towards being an after dinner speaker.
Taking up the sport after the inspiration of her grandfather to stop her getting into trouble and to teach her how to defend herself, Jones has excelled phenomenally considering her young age. She has claimed two European bronze medals at the 2010 St Petersburg and 2012 Manchester Championships as well as a Silver at the 2011 Gyeongju World Championships.
A young career with so much promise, the reputation of Jade Jones as an athlete and after dinner speaker has increased to an all-time high, and is only set to increase as her career progresses. A fans favourite and popular sports speaker, Jade Jones’s euphoric celebrations after securing her Olympic title showed her passion and dedication towards her passion. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her determination to stay where she is impressive, and something which shines through when she is addressing audiences in her role as an Olympic speaker. Recently Jade was awarded the OBE honour at the 2020 New Year Honours in recognition for her services to Taekwondo and sport.
Addressing her career through her informative and motivating speeches as an after dinner speaker, Jones’ proficiency as a sports speaker is at an all-time high. With her aspirations pointing towards the Rio de Janero 2016 games, Jones’ requirement for events, occasions and conferences as an Olympic speaker is only ever going to increase.
