Gobi brings a wealth of experience in travelling both domestically and internationally to the Board.
As a graduate with honours in Computer Aided Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire, his computer aided design skills found him starting his working career in Civil Engineering. Gobi started off as a CAD technician before developing his skills and experience to become a Highways Engineer. He has worked in various aspects of this sector and has over 15 years’ experience on both the consultancy and client side.
Gobi also has a vast amount of experience and success in the world of sport.
His eagerness to overcome his disability has seen him navigate through sport’s competitive pathways and he knows the attributes required to succeed. Starting from grassroots and club level, he has gone on to represent England at International level in two sports. Initially starting out as a Para-swimmer in his younger years, Gobi made the transition into Para-Badminton where his achievements include a European Championship Gold medal, a World Championships Silver medal, and he was also an Olympic Torchbearer at the London 2012 games. He continues to represent England, with his career now spanning over 15 years.
His international exploits through Badminton have also helped to progress his working career. His experience in worldwide air travel has led him to be brought into The Stansted Airport Consultative Committee (STACC) as a representative for Passengers with Reduced Mobility.
Gobi’s desire to try and help inspire others has provided him with several opportunities share his experiences and give advice to those who need it.
In both sport and in his professional career, Gobi tries to encourage people, particularly within the disability community, to achieve as much as they can.
He now sits as an Executive Board Member at Herts Sports Partnership, the county sports Partnership for Hertfordshire. Furthermore, he is also a trustee of the Anders Disability Badminton Charity (ADBC), which serves to support badminton players by helping to bridge the gap between grassroots badminton and the competitive pathway.
