Public Speaking
A Small Team, Big Pressure & A Golden Opportunity
Tim Baillie MBE and Etienne Stott MBE - Olympic Champions, London 2012
On August the Second 2012, history was made at the Lee Valley White Water Centre. We were proud to be the first British athletes ever to win Olympic Gold in the sport of canoe slalom. This incredible day formed part of an unprecedented performance by Team GB, which captured the attention of the British public and the world. Today, our efforts efforts are still dedicated to training and competing in the canoe doubles category.

Alongside our ongoing careers in elite sport, we also offer presentations tailored to a variety of audiences, based around our experiences as a small team operating and thriving in the high pressure environment of Olympic competition. As experienced athletes, we are happy to share our knowledge of how to build an effective team and how to get the most out of it when it counts. Our presentations feature themes of teamwork, overcoming adversity and coping with pressure, although we are flexible and happy to focus on specific themes to fit with the objectives of your event.

As experienced speakers, we pride ourselves on being down-to-earth and approachable, which we believe is the best way of engaging people from all walks of life. We're hard working, honest and generous, and uncompromising in our quest for high performance.

We look forward to working with you and your organisation.
