What you'll do

Do you wish you had more motivation? Is the fear of failure holding you back?

In this intimate Online Experience, I will help you learn about the positive mindset that has helped me to have a career in professional sport spanning four decades. I'm an athlete who throws backwards, but I am always thinking forward.

The most powerful muscle we have is in our head and in this interactive session, you will learn how to build a positive mindset and change your way of thinking to see adversity not as a barrier, but as an opportunity to improve and learn.

We’ll start with some light meditation to clear your mind. You’ll hear my stories of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity. And, you’ll learn how to set goals and start to achieve them with my 4-step guide.

You'll also have the opportunity to quiz me, see my Paralympic medals, and watch footage of me competing!

This is truly unique, and all you have to bring is an open mind.

*If there isn't a date/time that works for you, please message me.

**A great experience for team-building. Book a private experience for your team. Send me a message if you have any queries.

***A great experience for private groups looking to gather virtually over the Holidays! Whether you're celebrating with family, friends, or coworkers.

Conducted in English. Requires a good Internet connection.

I'm a 6 x Paralympic athlete for Great Britain, I competed at Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016. I've won 6 Paralympic medals and I'm currently preparing for Tokyo 2020.

I was born with cerebral palsy, and while it challenges me every day of my life, I was instilled with a tremendously positive attitude by my parents, as well as many great coaches and mentors along the way, who taught me how to harness the energy of positive thinking to overcome and embrace adversity.

Throughout my years as a professional athlete, I've come to realise that life is full of adversity, struggle, and challenge, but it's in these moments when we feel most alive and have our greatest achievements. I've helped many people overcome adversity with positive thinking and now I want to inspire even more people.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I have attended a number of virtual events and Airbnb experiences and while many were fun & entertaining, this one is meaningful. I highly recommend this valuable and special session with Stephen if you are looking for inspiration and tangible action items you can apply to improving your life and building a positive mindset. And who doesn’t need a little extra help with that these days? Stephen is an accomplished athlete but in this session he plays the role of coach and offers incredible insights, valuable perspective, and inspiring stories that motivate you to reflect and set some meaningful personal goals. As someone who invests a lot in personal growth and development, I have read a lot about positive psychology, growth mindset and the power of meditation, visualization etc., but the way Stephen delivers the content is human, personal and more effective through his use of storytelling. Remembering theories and concepts can be hard, but Stephen and his stories are unforgettable. He also balances the content with engaging exercises, discussion and humor. He is incredibly charming and a powerful communicator. In my opinion, it’s also an indirect lesson in living in the now. If you focus on being fully present and engaged in what Stephen is saying, it’s easy to see how important and impactful it is. If you have any hesitation in booking this session, that’s exactly why you should book it. It’s when we step out of our comfort zones that the magic happens, creating memorable experiences. I received this experience as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend and what an important and meaningful gift it was! I’m so grateful to have met Stephen, to have learned more about him as a person and I have taken away valuable perspectives (and lots of notes!) that I will carry with me. In fact, we started a saying at home after this session to remind us of Stephen’s powerful and humbling perspective on life. Whenever we find ourselves in moments of doubt or challenge, we say “What would Stephen do!” Thank you Stephen for sharing your wisdom, mindset and magic with us and for making it available to others at such an important and challenging time for many. If we can harness just a small amount of Stephen’s outlook and practices, we can all make it through this pandemic and live fuller lives!

It was an honour to spend time with Stephen and learn from him. Stephen shared so many great insights through his experiences. These personal stories really helped for this wisdom to land, even some concepts that I had prevoiusly learned about, resonated in a different way. Stephen was engaging, funny, and seems like an all around great guy. Thanks for a great experience!

Stephen hat eine bewegende und inspirierende Session abgehalten. Ich konnte einiges von seinen Erfahrungen und Taktiken lernen und für mich mitnehmen. Es war eine gute Mischung aus Vortrag und Interaktion mit den Teilnehmern.

What a rare opportunity to learn from a Paralympic hero! This is definitely one of the silver linings of 2020 for me. He had so many great stories and wisdom to share.
