Gary Shaughnessy - Speaker
Diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2015
Gary was a keen sportsman for many years but his diagnosis led him to re-think his role as a business leader and to immerse himself in exercise. Since then he's combined sport and community engagement to raise funds and awareness for both local and national charities. Over the past few years he's thrown himself into wing walking and abseiling, as well as running numerous marathons.
Gary is now the Chair of the Z Zurich Foundation as well as the Chair of Trustees at Parkinson’s UK. Last year, Gary and his wife Janet took on a series of challenges, raising £30,000 for Parkinson’s UK and the Z Zurich Foundation including a 1,340km charity bike ride from Zurich in Switzerland to his home in Ashford Hill.

Let us tell you more …
Delivering this “unique” event, will give everyone attending, a better understanding of how patient centric healthcare works for us, we are all different.
Involving patients in their future treatment plans, will enable us to take more control.
Also being involved and engaged more as patient advocates with medical tech, AI and pharma will only enhance, and improve our future care.
Products designed for us need to have our input, and your understanding by us the people living with the condition, explaining the side effects of Parkinson’s that we live with which prevents us from living a normal everyday life that a healthy person would normally take for granted.
We will bring a cross section of academics & professionals together including pharma, medical tech, AI. They will present and be invited to sit on panels alongside us, the patients, telling our individual life stories, sharing our ideas and personal medical data with you.
We hope that this event will bring about a change in how Parkinson’s treatment is delivered in the future.
We want relationships to change by listening to us more, identifying the missing pieces in the jigsaw puzzle of life with Parkinson’s which we currently face, moving towards a cure one day.
