He is the only sportsman of his kind to have been awarded ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’, to receive the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at SPOTY  & ‘BT’s Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award’ (amongst many others).

Sir AP McCoy is an exceptional keynote, after-dinner, corporate and motivational speaker and his experience, humour and humble personality endears him to any audience – his fear of failure, his drive to be the best, to succeed at all times, his mental / physical / motivational techniques, his anecdotal stories from the saddle, breaking his bones over 700 times, changing focus and strategy & and his insight into the pressures and dangers of the sport and constantly facing adversity makes for a lively Q&A.

A documentary style film about AP McCoy topped the iTunes film chart, having been released in over 200 cinemas across the UK and Ireland. “Being AP” also premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (just 20 from 6000 films were chosen), in Dublin and in London.
