Kicking off a brand new year of the Explorer Series, Mr Fogg will be welcoming former professional rugby player and recovering quadriplegic, Ed Jackson, into his humble Mayfair home.
Following a successful sporting career spanning ten years, in 2017, Ed Jackson suffered a spinal cord injury which left him paralysed from the neck down and a medical prognosis that he would never walk again. Through sheer determination and intense rehabilitation, Jackson defied all odds and climbed Mount Snowdon just a year after his accident. For one night only, on Monday 20th January, guests are invited to settle into Mr Fogg’s Residence and listen to Jackson’s inspirational tale of how he has turned this setback into a serious comeback.
Ed Jackson’s career saw him play for Bath, Wasps, London Welsh and the Dragons, before a devastating spinal cord injury left him with a broken neck and shattered vertebrae. Nearly three years on, he has founded the charity Millimetres To Mountains and become a motivational speaker, inspiring others to channel their physical and mental energy into encouraging positive behaviours and achieving their goals no matter how impossible they may seem.
In the comfort of Phileas’ Mayfair abode, guests will be able to sit back and relax whilst sipping on Tanqueray No. Ten cocktails as Ed discusses how to maximise potential in the most limiting situations and the importance of resilience in the face of adversity.
When: 20th January 2020, from 6pm
Where: Mr Fogg’s Residence, 15 Bruton Lane, London W1J 6JD
£: Free admission (RSVP via the website)
