Jonathan Wallach

Partner at Everton Phillips

and a Marathon des Sables 2021 competitor (6 marathons in 7 days in the Sahara Desert!)


James Leeper (committee member) will lead a conversation with Jonathan Wallach – Jonathan successfully completed the Marathon des Sables in 2021 – no mean feat as it involved 7 marathons in 6 days in the Sahara Desert.

What was his challenge all about and the reasons for it?

Jonathan will reflect on:

  • The highs and lows in his ability to finish the race when others fell behind.
  • A reflection on some of the Leader qualities:
    • Resilience,
    • Mental Toughness
    • Focus vs Empathy
    • Humility

Jonathan’s story is relevant to leaders (including those aspiring) in business and in all walks of life; the discussion will explore how the experience is relevant for anyone encountering the challenges and difficulties of change, e.g. when starting their own business, or changing careers or meeting job redundancy.

As well as enjoying a good story which includes lots of coaching lessons, attendees will benefit from a valuable learning experience that will help attendees in their lives.
