Steph delivering motivational speech at Ingeus employee event

I am regularly requested to deliver my motivational speech at a wide range of events. Jobseekers, HR personnel, business people, aspiring business owners and students tell me they are motivated by my ‘anything is possible’ approach.

My motivational speech is a personal account of my story from fashion designer, through sight loss, to successful entrepreneur. I share my experience of seeking work as a disabled applicant and how I turned the lemons in my life into lemonade.

I adapt my motivational speech to maximise the relevance for different audiences and events. For example:

  • I focus on starting and growing a business and share my advice and experiences if your event is self-employment related.
  • I share good practice and my personal and professional experiences of disability and employment if your event is about recruitment.
  • For audiences entering the big, wide world or having acquired a disability I share how it is possible to make your goals a reality and take positive steps. The focus is to motivate your audience to believe in their abilities and future.

But don’t take my word for it……

“Steph has moved from one successful career to another. Her speech ‘Making Lemonade’ will have you laughing, learning, crying and enjoying the journey with her. There are poignant messages and I would highly recommend this talk to any organisation seeking an motivational speaker”.

Frank FurnessCSP Founder member of the Professional Speakers Association in the UK 2003/2004 President of the Professional Speakers Association of Europe

“Hearing Steph speak is truly inspirational and motivating. She is living proof of the saying, ‘there’s no such word as can’t’. I have every possible respect for her talents as a motivational speaker and wouldn’t hesitate to book her again for events in the future.”

John Slade National Employment Officer RNIB
