A former Chief Executives Speaker of the year, Steve Smith has extensive experience of working with leading corporate organisations and elite level sport.
Steve 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 untouched for an incredible 22 years. Well known as an athlete who always delivered when it really mattered, his ability to respond to the pressure situation of an all or nothing third attempt was key to his success and gained him a reputation as one of the toughest mental competitors on the circuit.
A ruptured Achilles tendon finished Steve’s career at a time when he was the World number one and was seen by many as the favourite for the Olympics.
Steve’s keynote will give a unique insight into the crossovers from sport to business drawing on his own experience of performing at the highest level as well as the work of influential figures behind the success of the 2012 games.
