Australia’s First Winter Olympic Gold Medallist

Social presence

Olympic Champion, Champion Speaker and genuine onstage Entertainer is a unique skillset, and OMG talk about blowing your own trumpet ! Transitioning from being an expert speed skater to an expert speaker has been an interesting ride for Steven over the last 10 years. Nowadays he works with a professional speechwriter and a comedian to continually hone his presentation skills. He has presented at over 1000 conferences and events in 18 countries and still loves it.  He loves the adrenalin before going onstage, he is also an experienced 'Master' Of Ceremonies | Conference Facilitator and even does stand-up.

Steven enjoys the role of MC (Master of Ceremonies) and is also available to facilitate conferences.  His vast experience onstage (over 750 events in 15 countries) allows him to be relaxed, informative and entertaining.  Steven is one of Australia’s most well known Olympic Champions and adds the celebrity angle to any event.

Fortunately for his clients Steven has NEVER thought of himself as a celebrity.  He is professional, down to earth and after his presentation is over he always takes the time to mingle with the audience.  Steven prefers to fly economy class and loves to work with clients before the event to tailor his presentation to specific client needs.  Steven works directly with all his clients (no agent as a middle man), he's a good bloke, has an incredible product and comes with zero BS.

The roles of MC (Master of Ceremonies) and Conference Facilitator require preparation and Steven always works with his clients prior to the event to ensure no detail has been overlooked.

Combining Steven as both MC and Motivational Speaker or Entertainer at the same event is becoming popular.  This dual role allows you to save some of your event budget for something else. 

Steven also has many clients bring him back as the MC the following year/s after he has been the guest speaker.

Thanks for the amazing job you did as our conference MC, you fitted in like one of the family and I have heard nothing but positive comments of your time with us. I hope you enjoyed the week, I’m sure there will be an opportunity for us to work with you again. Thanks again for your huge contribution to our conference!

Libby Vernon - Business Manager – Rebel Apparel
He did an amazing job intertwining our event goals, his own Olympic story, motivation and kept us all laughing throughout. Steve added the celebrity angle and his professionalism and homework on our company and our people 'hit the mark' perfectly. Anyone looking for a motivational speaker or an event MC Steven Bradbury should be at the top of your list. Thanks Steve for helping make our product launch memorable.

Paul Gunther - Telstra Business Centre / HTG
It is without reservation that I provide this endorsement for Steven Bradbury. Steven, as the MC, made a major contribution to the success of all five events. His MC style appealed strongly to the audience and his ability to relate some of his life experiences to the messages on the day were first class. Steven was also keynote speaker at our National conference. Bringing him back as MC for our state conferences was a big success and I would highly recommend him as both MC and motivational speaker. He has broad appeal for business and private functions or conferences.

Steve Helmich - Director – AMP Financial Planning and Services
With the Qld Premier Anna Bligh, other dignitaries and TV Cameras in the room, for me it was a little daunting. Not so for Steve. Whilst keeping to schedule Steve’s MC style and use of comedy helped make the opening of our new Data Centre a great success. He was also generous with his time and made the extra effort to come in the day before our opening to go over all the details. Steve exceeded our expectations.

Jason Gomersal - ISeek Communications
I worked with Steven Bradbury last week. He really impressed me. Funny, clean, entertaining & motivating!
