Few people have ever forgotten an event with Steve Cunningham.
The world disappeared from his view one sunny day, as the green and picturesque Malvern Hills became shrouded in a sinister, creeping grey mist. Confused and very lonely, Steve found himself totally, and irreversibly, blind. He was 12 years old.
But Steve is a remarkable person. Offered the chance of selling matches on street corners, he took another path, and has spent his life breaking every barrier that stood in his way.
The fastest blind man on the planet, Steve powered to world speed records on land and sea. He then took to the air, and found international media fame as the world’s first blind pilot.
The former captain of the England blind football team does have one handicap in life: golf …he plays off 24.
Steve has battled, and overcome, more barriers than most people will ever face, and his deeply-moving story takes audiences on his journey from despair to success. His core message is that anyone can break barriers; that the path to true success is in your mind, and not your ability or environment.
Steve is a highly sought-after inspirational speaker, and clients return time after time because he captivates an audience like no other.
Witty, humorous, entertaining and painfully-honest, he makes after-dinner audiences laugh and cry. He also ensures that they’ll remember your event for years to come.
A genuine man, Steve sees no disability in his total lack of sight, but takes pride in sharing the vision, which many sighted fail to recognise, leaving members of every audience motivated and inspired to achieve his or her potential.
As a keynote speaker, Steve tailors each presentation to the needs of the client. So if you want your audience to really hear a corporate message, understand it, and be inspired to act upon it, then Steve is your man.
