In 2005 Steve became paralysed when he fell from a balcony and broke his neck. Soon after, he was introduced to wheelchair rugby and in 2012 he captained Great Britain at the London Paralympic Games.

During the build up to the games, Steve was involved in a series of Channel 4 documentaries and the Paralympic campaign, SuperHumans.

Steve has consolidated his sporting credentials taking on hosting duties at Rio Paralympic Games 2016, World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge, Wimbledon, The London Marathon and the Invictus Games for BBC.

Steve has worked on BBC Breakfast, Springwatch, Game Changers, Escape to the Perfect Town and has become a regular correspondent for Countryfile and The One Show. He recently embarked on 900 mile journey, alongside five other people with different physical disabilities, for the BBC1 series Without Limits: Vietnam.

Most recently, Steve has featured as a presenter on BBC One’s Escape to the Country and has joined The Travel Show to explore how accessibility has improved in the wake of the Paralympics in Tokyo.

Since retiring from elite sport, Steve has turned his focus to supporting others to be their best through sport, work and education. He works as a mentor and coach alongside wheelchair rugby and leading projects such as Sky Sports Living For Sport and Youth Games.

Steve’s journey captivates the heart and mind. The audience hangs off every word as he takes you through the challenges and triumphs he has faced. He makes you realise how quick life can change but also the very real reality that facing up to challenges when you want to turn away, as well as embracing the vulnerability they bring, can present priceless opportunities.
I would like to personally thank Steve for his inspiring and insightful speech at our Global HR Summit last week in Munich. I am extremely grateful for the time and effort he took to share his experiences with our HR Community. His insights were highly valued, and we received nothing but hugely positive feedback on Steve’s presentation. We would also like to express our appreciation for the fact that he took the time to stay longer, allowing our participants to converse with him before and during the lunch break.
Steve was absolutely amazing, the “first time ever” our members gave a standing ovation at the end of his talk. Absolutely everyone commented on how moving, entertaining and humorous he was. We would thoroughly recommend him for any future bookings. Thank you so much for your recommendation, not sure how “we/you” will be able to top this for next year, certainly going to be a challenge!
