Steve often prepares speeches to inspire the audience through telling his own story. His story not only highlights what it takes to be the best in field but is a truly emotive story of how Sir Steve has overcome adversity to achieve five Olympic Golds, particularly after suffering colitis and being diagnosed with diabetes.
Steve delivers speeches focussing on teamwork, motivation, what it takes to succeed, the importance of preparation and overcoming obstacles. To book Steve for your Event, contact Prime Performers via the online booking enquiry form or, alternatively, call us on 020 3500 3331.
