Martin commented:

“I am so proud and delighted to be launching such a new and unique weekend event under the Achieve name in my home City of Bath. When I took part in ITV’s I’m A Celebrity last year, something changed, not only in my mind-set, but also physically. My time in the jungle forced a break from my everyday commitments and gave me time to reflect on my diet and fitness. In just under three weeks I lost two stone and my lifelong asthma diminished. Since returning home I have continued with this focus and feel much healthier and happier, and have embarked upon a personal journey of discovery to further my own achievements in health, wealth and happiness. A big part of my personal happiness comes from helping and inspiring others which is why I am launching the Achieve Expo.”

Sir Ranulph Fiennes added:

“I am delighted to be invited to speak at the first Achieve expo and hope to motivate and show that personal goals can be achieved if you believe in yourself.”

Ruby Wax OBE also gave a message of support:

“I’m really excited to talk at the Achieve Expo about Frazzled.”

Achieve, sponsored by Legacy Education Alliance, Making Money from Property by Martin Roberts and Panasonic, will comprise two days of inspiring and interactive talks from top celebrities and leading experts from the fields of nutrition, healthy eating, wealth creation, fitness, mindfulness and motivation. An on-site Achieve exhibition area will also showcase over 50 leading brands offering demonstrations and advice across a wide range of innovative products and services. Making small, complementary changes in our increasingly busy lives can lead to big changes and this is a key objective for Achieve.
