New event in Middle Temple's 'Survive & Thrive' series to feature top performance coach, high performing barrister and renowned journalist (29 February 2016)

The Middle Temple's 'Survive & Thrive' series is to continue this year, with the second event beginning in February. 

The event, titled 'How to think like the SAS, perform like an athlete and bounce-back like an entrepreneur' is focused on providing expert advice on effective working styles and coping with difficulties within professional life.

This will be taking place on 29th February 2016.

Guest speakers include Andy McCann, one of the UK's leading Performance Coaches and Visiting Fellow at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Staffordshire University, James Pereira QC of Francis Taylor Building Chambers and renowned Journalist and Newsreader, Anna Ford.

Questions that will be addressed during the event include:

  • Could your working style be more effective?
  • Is the perceived risk of failure impacting on your wellbeing and performance?
  • Do you want to strike a better balance between your work and private lives?

Guests will have the chance to tap into the tools used by other high performing professionals – such as athletes and public figures. 

The Survive and Thrive Programme provides a series of events spanning interests and topics which go beyond the parameters of the legal world.

Middle Temple has recognised that those working in the legal profession need to acquire ideas, skills and knowledge in order to broaden awareness and understanding of everything from macro business-level matters, to identifying ways to think, behave and work differently.

The programme content has been designed so that it relates in a business and personal context. 

The Survive and Thrive Programme is also open to non-members (Clerks especially welcome). We’re also encouraging members to bring partners and teenage children over the age of 16. Both will benefit from attending the event, whether it is providing skills to cope in their own working or home lives, or with exam concerns and pressure to perform.

Registration is free for members and £10 for non-members. To register please contact the Treasury on 020 7427 4800, or at
