STEVE BATE MBE
Born and brought up in New Zealand, Steve has an inimitable speaking style that is professional, humorous and inspirational. He is able to convey his life experiences in a way that is down to earth and easy to understand and relate to, and which leaves audiences with the motivation to make the most of the opportunities that life gives to them.
The experiences and skills that Steve has gained throughout his working life and own adventures make him a versatile speaker who is able to relate to a wide range of audiences.
These skills, in addition to his experience of being diagnosed with RP
mean that he can offer a range of speaking topics, including
overcoming challenge, managing change, determination to succeed,
mental health and achieving goals.
During his career, Steve has been a time-served carpenter and has
worked as a highly qualified outdoor instructor,
providing life-changing experiences to a wide range of people
from vulnerable children and young offenders to highly-motivated adults.
He has also developed a successful bike recycling project, leading
a team of people to meet challenging targets in the third sector.
His solo ascent of El Cap and current role of training and racing as a member of British Cycling and ParalympicsGB adds yet another set of learning experiences to Steve's portfolio, making him the perfect speaker for events, keynote, business development and leadership workshops as well as schools and youth groups.
Steve has spoken for Premier League football events, Government departments, international companies, sports and outdoor clubs, schools, youth groups and charities.
Please get in touch if you would like Steve to speak at your next event.
"The feedback received from the attendees resonates with our own experience. We left the room inspired by your story, your resilience against adversity and your ability to do it all with humour and a 'can do' attitude."
