An encounter with blind motivational speaker Steve Cunningham will never be forgotten. He provides a new perspective to any situation, inspiring real change in others through his belief, strength and character of determination.
Although Steve lost his sight at the age of 12, he has not allowed this disability to hold him back. Those that know Steve would not define him by his disability but celebrate his vision, enthusiasm, aspirations and success.
Steve Cunningham speaks with humour and wit recounting his experiences in achieving whatever he has set his mind to. He inspires and entertains while making you re-evaluate your own goals, ambitions and limits.
As a successful fundraiser, business college graduate, former employee of Barclays Bank and a proud father of two daughters, Steve also holds three world records.
He is the holder of the blind land speed and powerboat records and was the first blind person to fly a plane around the UK.
A keen footballer who had many opportunities to fulfil his dream as a child, play for his team and possibly play for his country, one day that dream seemed to disappear but Steve didn’t let his blindness stop him. His sheer determination and ambition made the dream happen. Steve has captained the England Blind Football team and has been a member of the England Blind Cricket Team.
Steve Cunningham now passes on to others, his knowledge of the qualities he has developed. So often people do not realise what their capabilities really are, or how far they can stretch themselves. They actually fear going past the comfort zone, and finding out the limit of their own inner strength. Steve will change that defensive mind set into positive action.
He will bring to your conference, seminar or business meeting, the inspiration to transform potential into reality, with the dual purpose of developing the individual to a higher personal level thereby increasing the performance of the business.
His presentation will always be tailored to meet the definitive brief of the client; it will be delivered succinctly, passionately, humorously and above all, truthfully. Steve activity encourages the use of goals and targets as a means of monitoring and measuring personal development and performance.
Steve tells of his triumphs and failures in a no-nonsense style, combining humour with humility. He is a genuine man who sees no disability in his total lack of sight but takes pride in sharing the vision, which many sighted people fail to recognise
His success in so many areas shows that with the right focus, drive and belief you can fulfil your aspirations and achieve more than you previously thought was possible.
