Voted Academy of Chief Executives Speaker of the Year 2009-10, Steve Smith is Britain’s Most Successful ever High Jumper & Olympic Medalist. Perfect for improving individual and team performance.
Steve Smith is one of the country’s best and most sought after motivational speakers with extensive experience of working with leading corporate organisations and elite level sport. He is still Britain’s most successful ever high jumper, having won a medal in every major championship including the Olympic Games and his British record has now stood for over 20 years. Steve has a highly engaging style and his presentations are interactive and challenging as he takes the audience on a rollercoaster journey through his Olympic experience. Whilst sport based, his business experience ensures that the real life links into audience roles are never forgotten and delegates have a clear understanding of how the sporting parallels relate to them. A recent survey of over 100 presentations showed that 98% of the delegates attending his sessions agreed to take away something from his presentation to impact on their own performance.

Steve took around 500 Tesco Dotcom colleagues on an exciting roller-coaster ride into his world as an Olympian. He told his story with passion, humour, and honesty and had the audience back with him at the games, completely captivated. He seamlessly linked how ‘raising the bar’ for an athlete is no different to anyone in business wanting to stay ahead. The parallels he drew between the key elements of his approach and how dotcommers could think about their success rang true with all levels in the audience – from administrator to IT programmer to CEO. His directness and passion overcame any cynicism. To prepare he had quietly joined us ahead of his session, listened to the messages we were seeking to drive home and adjusted what he said accordingly. This professionalism and tailoring made him stand out. An enormously engaging, thought provoking and professional speaker.
