Steven Bradbury – Celebrity keynote speaker
Celebrity keynote speaker and Winter Olympic gold medallist Steven Bradbury will address participants with his insights for goal setting and overcoming adversity.
While Bradbury’s speed skating gold medal win is now embedded in Australian sports folklore, his rigorous training schedule of 5 hours a day, 6 days a week for 12 years and tenacity to overcome a broken neck show he was far from an overnight success story.
Mr. Bradbury will provide two inspiring presentations throughout the day, outlining his journey from the ice to becoming a highly successful business owner.
