What’s the speech all about?

Steve tells the stories of some of the most well-known British Olympic champions, and puts into perspective the extraordinary performance strategies and plans required to achieve outstanding Olympic results.

Steve discusses how performance has been at the heart of the remarkable success story that is Team GB, what a performance plan looks like for elite athletes and what business and teams can learn from their approach.

He offers fascinating insight into performance under pressure and how you get individuals and teams to deliver the optimal performance at the most critical moment. His book ‘How to Support a Champion’ explains the process for getting the best from a champion’s performance – as much about how you work with people as it is about science.

In his speech Steve goes on to define the journey required to get the most out of a champion, colleague or team’s performance, and challenges businesses to think differently about how they approach organisational performance.

Rooted in the Will It Make The Boat Go Faster? Performance Principles, it is an engaging, motivational and inspiring speech.
