Not only is Steven Bradbury one of Australia’s most well-known Olympic Champions, he is also a highly successful keynote, motivational, safety and after-dinner speaker sharing his story with corporate clients, sporting clubs, schools and charity organisations.
He’s vastly experienced having spoken at over 800 conferences and events in 15 countries. He is equally in demand as a superb MC, conference facilitator and humourist. Whatever role he takes on stage, Steven is always relaxed, informative, entertaining and highly prepared.
Steven’s victorious Olympic gold win in speed skating has been described by some as lucky – in fact, it took a lot more than just luck. Strategy and planning were also key ingredients in his success.
Four Olympic campaigns and 12 years of hard slog resulted in an Olympic Bronze in 1994, 111 stitches in his leg and in 2000, a broken neck. 18 months later that same neck was supporting Australia’s first Winter Olympic Gold Medal.
Steven Bradbury’s story is memorable and unique, touching a chord with people from all walks of life. It is a prime example to all that if you ‘stick it out’ you too can be the last man standing.
