Sally Gunnell OBE

Sally Gunnell OBE is the greatest female athlete this country has ever produced and the only woman in history to have ever concurrently held all four major championship gold medals – Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European as well as the World record.

before switching to the 400m hurdles, where she had her most famous successes.  Sally quickly established herself as force to be reckoned with in British athletics and in 1992 at the Barcelona Olympic Games she achieved the one missing piece from her already impressive trophy cabinet; an Olympic Gold medal.

Following her retirement in 1997, Sally moved from the track to the television studio and, after a spell with BBC Sport commentating on their athletics coverage, she moved to prime time television.

Now  Sally is a popular, inspirational and motivational corporate speaker.  Approachable and down-to-earth, she not only tells her own incredible story but she works with businesses to help them get the very best out of their staff and show that with the right mindset, it is possible to achieve anything.

Sally’s standard presentation concentrates on her  and how she adapted her training regime and life as a whole to ensure she would achieve her ultimate goal of Olympic Gold; the specific techniques she absorbed to ensure her body was finely tuned at exactly the right moment for the ultimate competition; the inevitable low points and how one can use mental power to overcome failure and use it to your advantage – these are the signs of a true winner

I just wanted to say how good it was to meet Sally on Wednesday at the Virgin Media conference. I have had so many people come up and say what an inspirational talk she gave and how much each person took away from it. I’ve also had at least a dozen people say they nearly burst into tears when they played the Olympic video! You can add another 211 happy customers to your total.
