Dear INSEAD Alumni,
You are invited to a lunch conference in Geneva featuring Celine van Till, an inspiring speaker, a Paralympic athlete, champion, writer, entrepreneur, Board member, and a model of resilience.
|Celine van Till, Paralympic athlete and entrepreneur
A gifted and talented horse-rider, Celine started riding at the age of 6 and soon revealed her strong competitive spirit. In 2007, she won a 5th place in the junior Swiss dressage championships, which opened the doors of the national junior team. But in 2008, her life totally changed: while training in Germany, she had a serious horse-riding accident and was plunged into a month-long coma, which she came out of partially tetraplegic, aphasic, and partially sighted.A strong, beautiful and resilient mind, she gradually regained trust in herself and her horse. Just two years after her accident, she was able to reach the highest level in para-dressage and went on to represent Switzerland at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. In 2018, she closed the horse-riding chapter of her life and now focuses on her next objective: to represent Switzerland in athletics at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic games, which she is striving for with more determination than ever.
