World Record Open Water swimmer and inspirational Mentor Neil Agius is set to speak at the Business Leaders Malta Conference, elucidating how his principles have propelled him through the most treacherous waters and foster determination. 

Neil Agius is a name that has become synonymous with relentless endurance and the human spirit’s indefatigable will. From the crystalline waters of his swimming academy, where he has been nurturing the dreams of aspiring swimmers since 2007, Neil has taken the plunge into the world of ultra-distance open water swimming, pushing the boundaries of what is physically and mentally conceivable.

In 2019, he conquered the 37km stretch around Gozo in 10 hours. The year 2020 witnessed his 101km swim from Sicily to Malta, completed in 28 hours. Yet, it was in 2021 that Neil undertook his most colossal challenge and clinched his first world record, a 125km swim from Linosa, Italy, to Malta, completed in a monumental 52 hours.

Neil Agius will be joined by international speakers such as David JP Phillips and Jenk Oz, as well as local entrepreneurs Michael Cutajar, Valentina Rossi, Katrina Grech, Edward Curmi and MaltaDaily’s very own Gabriel Mifsud.

During his visit to the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST), Education & Sports Minister Clifton Grima met with students and announced the implementation of means testing bands to increase eligibility for additional stipends.

Through this new measure, eligibility for this additional allowance will be extended to more students coming from low-income families. 

Consideration will be given to the number of students in the family who are pursuing their studies.

This measure, applicable from the current academic year, will benefit over 300 students for the first time. Significant adjustments include increases in the stipends ranging from €2,550 to €3,200.

Minister Grima concluded by reaffirming the Government’s commitment to fulfilling its promises and maintaining its strong social ethos. He emphasised the ongoing efforts to develop a more inclusive system that provides adequate support to students from all backgrounds, especially in terms of financial assistance, as fairness remains a core principle. 

During the visit, Minister Grima was accompanied by the Principal and CEO of MCAST, Professor James Joachim Calleja.
