His leading presentation “Success is a Decision, not a Gift” defines the 5 main attributes which he believes will ensure success in any walk of life, namely:
  • How to plan for life
  • How to develop profound self-belief and deal with failure
  • How to understand your weaknesses (and what to do about them)
  • How to reach your maximum performance
  • How to develop passion for your life
Steve focuses heavily on the mental preparation involved in performing and offers a revealing insight into his ability to peak for major championships. His insightful and engaging after dinner speech and team building presentations are informative yet entertaining. The team building presentation concludes with a small practical demonstration where Steve introduces his gravity defying javelin - highlighting the essential components necessary for success within any team.

We all appreciated the time you spent talking to as many of the guests as you could and your presence helped make it a really successful evening"
