Steve Williams gave an impressive and inspiring speech at the Living Well West Midlands first annual conference. His positive approach to the subject area lifted the mood and brought a few laughs. Steve left people feeling motivated towards being the best they can possibly be and to set their own 2012 goals.
It was great to have a double Olympic Gold medalist with us for the evening. Steve Williams' relaying of Olympic experience really hit home with the team on many fronts; what dedication truly is, what it takes to achieve your personal best, and why you need to keep learning to keep winning. His modesty and engagement with the group was really appreciated, and left us simply wanting to know more.
Sainsbury's have been pleased to have worked with Steve Williams over the past 3 years. Steve has over this period worked collaboratively with our own internal teams and suppliers to produce work that has been inspirational, structured, focussed and delivered with style and charisma. Steve has shown his versatility and flexibility in working across a variety of projects with us, from coaching to conference appearances and "performance/winning workshops" working with groups numbering from 10 to 600. We will continue to use Steve - above all - for personal qualities, values and the energy he puts into always working to do a great job for us.
Steve Williams is a humble champion! He could tell his story as a hero, but he does it as a human being which made it very personal and all the more credible. His journey was full of recognisable “aha-moments” for us as individual professionals, as well as of metaphors that do apply to success as a team in a tough business environment.
Our work with Steve Williams could not have gone better. We were able to evolve the conversation about 'team' to a different level at the same time as offering a challenging, fun, energising and illuminating experience for the group that was universally well received. Following our clients experience of the session we invited Steve to bring the same messages to our own team meeting. The key messages transfer extremely well to the business context and once again the themes left a lasting impression that will impact on our own attitudes and actions. Steve's involvement was full of impact eye-opening and inspiring in equal measure and I have no hesitation in recommending his contribution for those seeking to achieve elite team performance.
