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. Areas of speciality include Comedians for Hire. 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.
