ThORTs with PRO.PT

10.12.19

ThORTs launched this month with a sold-out ‘think and drink’ event at the offices of Simons Muirhead and Burton Solicitors in central London.

ORT UK’s brand new series of speaker events for young professionals, kicked off with an inspiring talk from PRO.PT, Yusef Bouattoura, in conversation with Olivia Bizot.

The former gang member turned personal trainer, spoke about his journey from homelessness to successful businessman and offered advice on health and fitness.

“A huge thank you to everyone involved in ThORTs and ORT UK for having me down. It was an amazing event – I was able to share my story and inspire loads of people. The audience were incredible. Please everyone keep supporting ORT UK, it’s incredible what those guys are doing.”

Yusef Bouattoura, PRO.PT

“We are so pleased that the event was such a success. We had a wonderful turnout and Yusef was an incredible speaker. There was a great buzz on the night and I can’t wait to see what’s next for ThORTs!”

Lucy Freedman, ThORTs Chairperson, ORT UK

“It was a pleasure to support ORT UK’s valuable work, whilst socialising, learning and being inspired at ThORTs.”
