This story is amazing! Lisa Potts is a mind blowing woman - must read!
on 3 March 2014
I bought this book very recently as I have booked Lisa herself to come and speak at one of our client events at the end of April 2014.
I remember Lisa and this story pretty well as I was at secondary school myself when this happened and so soon after Dunblane too - our school went onto lock down for some weeks after this terrible incident. Lisa really is the most remarkable woman and still is today. Whilst reading the book you can tell it is her words and how she would have spoken them. Very down to earth, humble and stunned to be called a hero!
This book proves that we can all make plans in life but one incident can change and shape the rest of your life and it is how you deal with it that really moulds what comes next. It would have been very easy for Lisa to slip into a form of depression or be traumatised for life but she chose to have a life instead and has fought hard for it too.
I can't wait to meet Lisa in person! I will always be in awe of the woman who threw herself in front of a mad man to protect those children.
