About

September 23rd 2000 was guaranteed a special place in the history of the Olympic Games, when Britain's Sir Steve Redgrave won his fifth medal in five successive Games - Los Angeles, Seoul, Barcelona, Atlanta and Sydney.

Sir Steve’s other sporting interests include golf and winter sports, and during the 1989/90 season, he was a member of the British Bobsleigh Team. Together with partner Sir Matthew Pinsent, Steven is the holder of the World Record in Coxless Pairs set in Lucerne in 1994 and the Olympic Record, set in Atlanta in 1996.

But perhaps even more impressive than Steve Redgrave's extraordinary athletic performances themselves, is the fact that they were achieved against a background of serious illnesses. He nearly missed the Atlanta Games due to Colitis, for which he still receives treatment, and in 1997 he was diagnosed as diabetic.

Sir Steven Redgrave has been awarded the MBE and the CBE. The University of Durham also awarded him an Honorary Degree in December 1996.

Off the water, he has a busy career representing commercial companies in a PR and promotional capacity at corporate events.

Testimonials

Sir Steve was a truly memorable and inspirational speaker, our customers were both impressed and genuinely moved by his presentation, and I really enjoyed getting to meet him and hosting him on the stage.

Simon Robinson, Responsys Inc - Senior Director Marketing & Alliances EMEA

Steve was fantastic! He went down an absolute storm - he was the highlight of the conference. His speech was very appropriate to the event and he stayed around and took photos with the attendees. He was a really nice guy and very easy to work with.

Mars Inc

Steve's presentation was an ideal blend of personal experience matched with reflections on our business environment. The parallels that exist between the challenges faced by an Olympic gold-medallist and those of a Technology function in a Business Information company are remarkable! The effect of having Steve spend time with us, sharing his story and reliving his experiences, was inspirational and motivational. Steve engaged our audience with his warm style and winning charisma and it was great that he was able to spend time informally with our team members after the presentation. We appreciated the generosity with his time and his willingness to chat to people and join in photos.

Julian Prower, Leader, International Technology, D&B

I asked Steve Redgrave to an England coaching session. I think I learned more from him than anyone, and so did the players. What came over loud and clear is that he is such a determined individual. Steve shook a few England players telling them just what you have to do to win gold medals and how hard it is. I think by the time the team started winning there were quite a few of them who thought they could become gold medallists too. They became completely obsessed about winning.

Sir Clive Woodward, England Rugby Coach

Many, many thanks for a wonderful speech at our Conference dinner on Thursday. You had obviously worked hard to align your words with the theme of our conference. We really appreciate the care and attention you showed to us.

You had a remarkable effect on those present. Many, many people wrote that they valued your presentation and for me, personally, it was a highlight and made the hairs on my neck stand up at various points during your talk. It was truly inspirational.

Jeff Herdman, Group Managing Director, The Oval Group

Tesco were delighted that Sir Steve Redgrave could make a unique contribution as a speaker at a recent launch. As our foremost Olympian he brings a reputation that is both inspiring and motivational. Sir Steve demonstrated a level of approachability and openness that helped make the event truly memorable.
