Motivational Speaker:  Steven Venables

STEPHEN VENABLES

Since 1989 Stephen Venables has inspired and entertained thousands of men and women from every branch of the corporate world.  The events have ranged from training days to boardroom dinners to large sales conferences.  His shortest ever presentation was a fifteen minute keynote address for the launch of a new computer; the longest a three hour seminar for a travel company’s annual conference in South Africa. 

 

With the British events managers, Business Pursuits, he has also presented and hosted, on many occasions, a highly successful

team event called Everest Challenge.

 

He likes to make each event special, discussing the client’s precise needs beforehand, frequently tailoring his presentation to concentrate on specific topics of concern to the client.  Both content and length can be varied: some clients want a short, snappy address after dinner; others are looking for something longer.  A typical presentation lasts about forty five minutes, followed by a question and answer session. 

 

Presentations are nearly always illustrated with colour slides. 

Until computer scanning matches the quality of celluloid, Venables prefers to stick with traditional projection, onto as large a screen

as possible.  High mountain country is exotic, sublime, sometimes terrifying, and the visual display needs to convey that brilliance.

 

Stephen Venables offers two main presentations:   Everest - The Peak of Success and A Life of Adventure  - Saying “Yes” to Opportunity.  The latter is based on work he has been doing with the major British pharmaceutical company Boots plc, alongside the training company Apter International.  He always likes to work closely with conference facilitators and human resource directors. 

 

Time and time again, delegates and organisers say how many chords he has struck with their own concerns at work.  That relevance is very gratifying. However, equally important is the whole new perspective which he brings from a world outside the immediate corporate environment.  As well as being acutely relevant, his presentations are funny, uplifting and inspirational.

WHAT THE CLIENTS SAID

 

"If you are looking to motivate your staff I can think of no better way than to listen to Stephen Venables’ epic story of how he climbed Everest - a story of teamwork, guts, the will to win and total dedication to his work."

 Clive Morris, Chief Executive

Powerhouse Communications

 

"Stephen Venables made a major contribution to Tandem’s launch of a new product called “Himalaya” at the Royal Geographical Society.  Stephen met with us before the event so that he could understand our requirements, lent photographs to compliment our staging and on the day gave an excellent presentation. We would undoubtedly use him again."

Roger Bellass, Managing Director

Tandem UK & Ireland

 

"A short note to thank you for the engrossing presentation you gave to our European Leadership forum.  The use of your expedition experiences to show the essence of teamwork gave us a wholly new perspective  which was most illuminating.  And of course those stunning slides …. I normally receive a couple of polite notes from my people after such events, but this time I was congratulated on my choice many times over – terribly gratifying."

Tony  Fitzpatrick, Director

Ove Arup & Partners

 

"As the keynote speaker, Stephen set an enthusiastic tone for the whole Convention.  His message about the importance of teamwork and of striving to meet goals and overcome obstacles was inspiring to our delegates.  Our association and members struggle constantly with negative attitudes and Stephen’s positive message was a welcome relief from the barrage of pessimistic thinking we encounter on the prairies.  I would highly recommend Stephen to other organisations looking for an inspirational  speaker."

Sharon McKinnon,
Convention Program Coordinator

Western Wheat Growers Assoc.

 

"He left a lasting impression on the joint Operator Services Platform team.  There was a striking parallel between his project and ours.  Both were Anglo-American and both were attempting to reach goals that had not been attained before.  To hear him talk about his success was both exciting and stimulating for the team and he gave the project the inspiration needed to get it off the ground."

Alistair Dixon,

Operator Services Platform
