He was simply the world’s greatest decathlete, drawing on a competitive attitude and ability that was unparalleled. Daley had an exuberant character on and off the track and such was his success and popularity made athletics front page news.

He retired from athletics in 1992 as a result of injury, and went on to play football for Wimbledon and Mansfield Town FC.

He was awarded the MBE in 1982, an OBE in 1986 and advanced to CBE in 2000, and was voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 1982.

Daley’s post athletics career involves a number of activities including:

  • Client hospitality
  • Boardroom breakfasts/lunches
  • Staff team building programme
  • Corporate activity days
  • Bespoke hospitality
  • Team coaching
  • Fitness and conditioning

Daley was a leading ambassador for the winning London 2012 Olympic bid. He focused on highlighting the benefits that hosting the Olympics would bring to education and sport in schools, and he played a key role lobbying the international IOC members right down to the final vote in Singapore. Daley is also involved with two major charities, Laureus Sport for Good and Barnardo’s. He is an active supporter and works with both charities to promote their good work.

Daley is an inspiring advocate for Sports causes, and makes an ideal addition to any event.
