City of London School
To ensure students get the most out of the day, we include a comprehensive aftercare package along with every ticket. Students are sure to have an enriching experience listening to our speakers, learning in a way that is so different from day-to-day classroom life. It's sure to leave a lasting impression.
We don't want, or ask, students to spend the day taking notes. Instead they take home a comprehensive journal featuring pre-interview segments from the speakers, along with expert articles covering areas such as nutrition plans, training advice and teamwork.
The journal includes an access code for our online aftercare area. Here they'll be able to recap on the video highlights from the event, and watch talks from past and future conferences as well – they get lifetime access! Parents and guardians can also use this area to learn more about the experience their child had at a PRC Elite event.

On graduating from Durham University in 1995, Batty joined Hampshire CCC, before moving to Surrey CCC, where Batty was able to enjoy regular first team action. Batty was a regular player in Surrey's sustained success, winning three county championships around the turn of the century. Batty captained Surrey in 2004 was awarded a benefit year by the county in 2009. He broke the record for most catches in a match with 11, against Lancashire, breaking the record of then Surrey coach Steve Rixon. In October 2009 Batty signed a three-year contract with Gloucestershire. Simon Briggs of the Daily Telegraph reviewed his career, saying he was "the finest uncapped player of the last 20 years." We are delighted to have Jonathan join us on our panel of speakers for PRC Elite, and his extensive Sport Psychology knowledge will give a fascinating insight for all pupils involved.@jonathanbatty
England and GB Hockey
Rio 2016 Gold Medallist. Crista made her senior international debut for England Hockey in 2003. She was part of the Great Britain squad which won Bronze at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, as well as the England squad that won Bronze at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne. She retired from international hockey after the 2012 Summer Olympics, aged 27, after earning 171 international caps. However, last year, she was asked out of retirement by the Head Coach of England.www.cristacullen.co.uk
GB Olympic Rower
Mark’s rowing career started at the age of 14 at the Poplar Blackwall & District Rowing Club. In 2008 he was appointed captain of the prestigious Leander Club, and he and his rowing partner, Zac Purchase, were the only unbeaten crew in world rowing, sealing their status by winning GB's first ever lightweight medal and Olympic gold in the Beijing Olympics. They continued to be an unstoppable force in the world of rowing, winning gold in the 2010 and 2011 World Championships, and silver medals at London 2012. We are delighted to have Mark speak for us at PRC Elite's conferences this year.www.markhuntergb.com
Frank Buglioni started boxing at the age of fourteen and, after becoming a two time national champion, was selected to fight for England at just nineteen years of age. Following this, Frank was also selected for the podium squad, the team from which the Olympians were selected from, and gained huge experience in the following eighteen months winning over 50 of his 60 fights before turning professional. Frank made his professional debut in November 2011, and won his first ten fights on the way to being crowned the WBO European super middleweight champion. He later went on to win the WBA international super middleweight title as well, and, most recently having moved up to the light heavyweight category, stopped Olegs Fedotovs in the first round in March 2016. Franks honest and driven description of the sacrifices that it takes to be an elite level professional boxer puts him in a great place to talk to young people, and we are proud to have him join our team of speakers at PRC Elite.@FrankBuglioni
