Carl Hester is one of the greatest ever equestrians, leading Great Britain to Gold Medal victory at the London 2012 Olympics. In these vibrant memoirs, he tells the incredible story of the passion for horse-riding which revolutionised his life and made him the champion he is today. Carl grew up on the remote Channel Island of Sark, moving to the UK mainland at the age of 16 to work with horses, mainly as a way to leave home. He could never have predicted what a great affinity he would have for dressage. Carl's career enjoyed a stratospheric rise as he progressed from working as a groom/rider to riding international dressage horses full time for renowned owners Dr and Mrs Bechtolsheimer, to training his own horses, and other top riders, to international success. Carl's early career revealed someone capable of monumental achievements. He provides a rare insight into both the people and the horses that drove him to victory, initially the skewbald mare Jolly Dolly on which he won the 1985 Young Riders Dressage Championship. During the early 1990s he rode in the World Championships, the European Championships and the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, becoming Great Britain's youngest ever rider to compete in the Games. His riding skills have increased with age, culminating in the hugely successful years as part of the Gold Medal teams that won the 2011 European Dressage Championships and, of course, that made history at London 2012. He achieved both feats on the same extraordinary horse, Uthopia, while as a trainer he produced the even more remarkable combination of Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro. A first-class sportsman and a witty and engaging writer, Carl now offers his admirers the opportunity to read an intelligent, humorous and, above all, inspiring account of his life - from the ups and downs of his career to the motivations and techniques which have helped him to win 66 national titles, represent Team GB at four Olympic Games, two World Championships and seven European Championships, and become one of the best riders - and horsemen - in the world.

“An inspiring and informative read” - Financial Times Shortlisted for the Business Book Awards 2022 In Making It Happen, Rebecca Stephens argues that the successful implementation of strategy often comes down to one individual – an individual with a clear, unswerving commitment to the cause, coupled with excellent leadership and communication skills. We all have the power within us to create change and get things done, even against the odds. With a variety of case studies and an eclectic selection of interviewees, this book champions diversity of thought and the importance of gleaning practical and actionable insights from a broad array of perspectives and experiences. And making things happen is more important now than ever. Virtually every organization, institution and business is in desperate need of a practical and actionable strategy to find their way through these difficult times with minimal disruption. According to the Project Management Institute, 37% of projects fail due to the lack of defined project objectives and milestones. Yet there are rare exceptions to this widespread failure to effectively strategize. This book tells the stories of individuals whose extraordinary efforts and persistence have resulted in successful strategy execution. Interestingly, most have effected change not just to the benefit of themselves or their organization, but to broader society too. And most work in organizations that are typically steeped in tradition and resistant to change: the civil service, the UN, the medical industry, education, financial services, and long-established multi-national corporations. Rebecca Stephens interviews these individuals and uncovers the secrets behind their success, while also drawing upon her own eclectic experiences in implementing strategy – from both her corporate and journalism career and her time as a revered mountaineer. Making it Happen demonstrates that it's a sense of purpose, conviction and optimism – combined with strong commitment and the ability to influence and persuade – that leads to the successful implementation and execution of strategy.

Perhaps once in a lifetime we meet someone who has the ability to inspire us in one brief meeting, who can confront not one but two life-threatening illnesses with remarkable courage – and instil hope in others in the face of the greatest adversity. Jennifer Roberts was one of those people. Accomplished in defying the odds, she lived with a kidney transplant for 29 years and terminal lung cancer for more than 12 months. A larger than life character, she faced health challenges and fear with good humour and the warmest of smiles. As one of the UK’s leading dementia specialists, she worked to help transform the way we care for those with the condition, setting new benchmarks for supporting people living with dementia in their own homes. Regularly taking on professional and personal challenges that she was told were beyond her, Jennifer championed transplant donor campaigns and genuinely made every moment of her 51 years count. In the last year of her life, Jennifer achieved new highs in her career and quietly, without fuss, found time to help many others diagnosed with and receiving treatment for cancer. Written by her husband Paul, Jennifer’s uplifting never-say-die story tells of her bravery and immense determination to succeed, and how she found true love and happiness in her life. She and Paul shared a remarkable love story; they met in extraordinary circumstances, married in a Scottish castle and exchanged more than 1,000 love letters and cards in their near 13 years together. Make It Happen is a touching, bittersweet but ultimately uplifting read. It will be enjoyed by fans of biographies and those seeking an inspirational, true story. Proceeds from the book will go towards helping people living with cancer and kidney disease.
