Two of Great Britain's finest Olympic athletes, Steve Backley and Roger Black, combine their experience to enable individuals and organisations to gain knowledge of what drives sporting success, translating it into real-life and day-to-day activities that can be acquired by anyone with the will to commit.
Steve Backley OBE
As one of Britain's most consistent and popular athletes for over a decade, Steve established himself as one of the all time greats of his sport having been ranked in the world's top ten every year between 1989 and 2002. Steve is the only British track and field competitor to win medals at three different Olympic Games. He broke the World Record three times and was crowned 'World Athlete of the Year' by the IAAF in 1990.
Roger Black MBE
Having represented Great Britain for fourteen years at the highest level in athletics Roger won fifteen major Championship Medals including European, Commonwealth and World Championship Gold Medals. His greatest achievements were winning the Olympic 400 metres Silver Medal in 1996 and being part of the Gold Medal winning 4 x 400 metres relay team at the 1991 World Championships.
Their stage presentations capture the essence of competing at the Olympic Games. They offer delegates the chance to reflect on how Olympic athletes behave and offer an introduction to some of the values that surround this effective behaviour. The content is presented in a way that is easy to translate into everyday working and social life, helping attendees to build an Olympic performance in their own lives.
