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 over four decades. I'm an athlete who throws backward, 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! Whether you're connecting with family, friends, or co-workers.

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.

This experience with Stephen is great for groups. He breaks the ice with low pressure and fun activities that get everyone engaged. He is warm, personable, and funny while sharing inspiring stories and actionable advice. I am grateful we could connect with this amazing Paralympian from across the large pond.

Stephen is a captivating storyteller and his experiences and the value he's gotten from them will affect you deeply. It was very uplifting and emotional, and he made his life story very relatable. I'm so glad I attended this. I wanted to take a long walk afterwards and really think about my own life and how I can be more positive and grateful for what I have. Highly, highly recommended.
