Steven Bradbury was the first Australian to win a gold medal in the 2002 Winter Olympics after winning the 1000m short track speed skating event, and was also a part of the short track relay team who won a bronze medal in 1994.

His career was forged by his perseverance and determination to succeed, and Steven uses that same mindset as a motivational speaker. He doesn’t like to use the term motivational speaker, as he believes it sounds “un-Australian”, instead preferring to call himself a real life speaker. Steven speaks from the heart using his real life experiences of injury, willpower and achievements to motivate and inspire others.

Can I just start by saying how brilliant you were yesterday! Such an honour to hear and learn from your story – truly inspiring. Accepting the gold medal for 12 years, not 90 seconds speaks volumes for your maturity and given how hard I work, I know that I am not defined by one day!Pip Marlow – Microsoft Australia Managing Director

Steven’s story resonates with many Australians who have battled tough times to ultimately achieve their goals, and it’s this familiarity combined with his down to earth and warm persona, which is an effective “ice breaker” with his audience.

Steven has learnt many strategies for success from his experience in both sport and business. His goal as a motivational speaker is to impart a “never give up” attitude within your team, and achieve lasting results.

Steven has been working with comedian Fred Lang and fine tuning his comedic ability, which has produced many keynote speaking bookings due to his comedy prowess and also the celebrity angle. His Olympic stories, childhood tales and fatherhood anecdotes make him a great choice as an after dinner speaker, as does his adaptability and extensive entertainment skills.

Over the last decade, Steven Bradbury has spoken to a diverse range of people, including politicians, council workers, Olympians, fashion designers, the Wallabies, plumbers, CEO’s, accountants and school kids – making him an ideal sports speaker for any audience.

Steven as Motivational Speaker

Over 800 events in 15 countries

Just another sports speaker? No way! Steven Bradbury is a professional He has presented at more than 800 events worldwide and knows his way around a stage like he used to know his way around an ice rink.

When he was a professional ice skater Steven’s leg was impaled by a rival’s blade which caused him to lose four litres of blood on the ice in 60 seconds, and suffered a broken neck. He trained five hours a day, six days a week for 12 years to become an overnight success and the Southern Hemisphere’s first Winter Olympic Gold Medalist.

Today Steven’s passion is motivating his audience. He loves it. Particularly the adrenalin before going onstage. He works with a professional speechwriter and a comedian to hone his presentation slides and material to suit each client’s individual needs. Steven also used the life skills learned through sport in business. Skaters wearing custom made carbon-fibre boots built by Steven and the Revolutionary Boot Company won a dozen Olympic medals and RBC exported custom made cycling shoes to 23 countries.

For any organisation needing an injection of passion, a lesson in persistence, teamwork, positive mindset and sustaining a culture of success and a few laughs, Steven is a ‘must see’.

Steven as Master of Ceremonies

Steven Bradbury enjoys presenting as a Master of Ceremonies and has been sharpening his skills for the last 8 years, however, he is still eager to learn more. He understands that being an MC involves more than just introducing other speakers. It requires the ability to build energy in the room and to feed off that energy to keep the listeners engaged. His previous exposure in front of large audiences results in Steven providing a natural, entertaining and informative stage presence.
