Stef Reid MBE

Stef Reid is an inspirational figure who turned a life-altering accident into an opportunity, becoming a world champion long jumper, four-time Paralympian, and holder of five world records. With a biochemistry degree, she's also a ground-breaking model, actor, and speaker, showing that determination can redefine possibilities.


About Stef Reid

Stef Reid stands as a symbol of breaking barriers and excelling in every aspect of life.

At 15, a major accident shattered her rugby aspirations, but Stef didn’t let that stop her. She adapted, using a carbon fiber prosthetic leg to carve out a victorious new journey. She won the IPC World Champion title in Long Jump in 2017, participated in four Paralympics (2008, 2012, 2016, 2021), and secured three Paralympic medals, all while setting five world records in track and field.

Beyond her athletic achievements, Stef, armed with a biochemistry honours degree, has made significant strides as a keynote speaker, broadcaster, executive coach, actor, and model. She broke new ground as the first amputee model at London Fashion Week and demonstrated her versatility and resilience by reaching the quarterfinals of “Dancing on Ice 2022,” challenging perceptions of what’s possible, regardless of physical limitations.

Closing a remarkable 18-year chapter in Paralympic sports in June 2022, Stef has now dedicated herself to inspiring others to achieve excellence in their own lives, leveraging her journey as a testament to the power of determination and adaptability.

Life rarely unfolds as we expect it to. In world that continues to surprise, the ability to adapt to any set of circumstances is the foundation of sustained high performance. Adapting is hard work and it takes courage and resilience to experiment and innovate. And the question people keep asking is “How do we show up day after day, full of passion and motivation?” This session will get audiences excited about change, excited about challenges, and excited about moving outside their comfort zones!

  • High Performance Habits for Mental Health and Well Being

High performing bodies and minds are not just for elite athletes. They are necessary for anyone serious about bringing their ideas and goals to life. Our bodies matter because they are the means by which we take action in the real world. Our mental health matters because big goals take time, and we need to protect our capacity to ride out the bumps. This is a talk that inspires audiences to action by helping them see their potential and believe they are worth the investment.
