Steven Bradbury is one of the world’s most colourful Olympic champions. Steven has an impressive career as an Olympic athlete that has been driven by determination, sacrifice and most importantly a will to succeed. With the same passion as Steven has shown on the ice, he has continued his success as a motivational speaker and master of ceremonies to corporate clients, schools, sporting clubs and charities and many more.
Steven Bradbury's remarkable and unlikely victory at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics was achieved after a spectacular final-lap spill took out his four rivals. Bradbury threw his arms up in disbelief and smiled as he crossed the finish line. His warm friendly nature, down to earth manner and use of humour is sure to help ‘break the ice’. The Bradbury story is one of the true Aussie battler who overcomes much adversity to achieve the ultimate goal.

As well as being entertained and inspired your audience will be left with a lasting impression that much of the prize is in the journey and that success takes Passion, Persistence and Teamwork.
Some people have described Steven Bradbury’s victory as lucky. Winning Olympic gold took a lot more than just luck. The same as in business, strategy and planning were key ingredients in that success. Four Olympic campaigns and 12 years of hard training including an Olympic Bronze in 1994, 111 stitches in his leg and in the year 2000 a broken neck are testimony to that hard work and persistence. 18 months after breaking it that same neck was supporting an Olympic Gold Medal.
Steven’s story touches a chord with people from all walks of life and is a prime example to all that if you "Stick it Out" You too can be the Last Man Standing.
Steven was also recently awarded the Order of Australia Medal in on Australia Day in 2007.
Steven also enjoys the role of MC (Master of Ceremonies) and is also available to facilitate conferences. His vast experience onstage allows him to be relaxed, informative and entertaining. Steven is one of Australia’s most well known Olympic Champions and adds the celebrity angle to any event.
The roles of MC (Master of Ceremonies) and Conference Facilitator require preparation and Steven always works with his clients prior to the event to ensure no detail has been overlooked.
