Steve Cunningham Biography

Steve Cunningham is an international motivational speaker, conference speaker and after dinner speaker. He has been totally blind from the age of 12, but has never allowed his disability to define or restrict him. Steve is a witty, articulate and passionate man who tells it how it is, and does not suffer fools gladly.

The world disappeared from his view one sunny day, as the green and picturesque Malvern Hills became shrouded in a sinister, creeping grey mist. Confused and very lonely, Steve found himself totally, and irreversibly, blind. He was 12 years old.

Sport has always been Steve’s passion, and when his aspirations of becoming a professional footballer with his beloved Aston Villa were dashed, he simply amended his dream, adjusted his talent and went on to captain the England Blind Football team, become a member of the England Blind Cricket Eleven and play to a golfing...

Steve Cunningham is an international motivational speaker, conference speaker and after dinner speaker. He has been totally blind from the age of 12, but has never allowed his disability to define or restrict him. Steve is a witty, articulate and passionate man who tells it how it is, and does not suffer fools gladly.

The world disappeared from his view one sunny day, as the green and picturesque Malvern Hills became shrouded in a sinister, creeping grey mist. Confused and very lonely, Steve found himself totally, and irreversibly, blind. He was 12 years old.

Sport has always been Steve’s passion, and when his aspirations of becoming a professional footballer with his beloved Aston Villa were dashed, he simply amended his dream, adjusted his talent and went on to captain the England Blind Football team, become a member of the England Blind Cricket Eleven and play to a golfing handicap of 24.

Steve then broke the 100m World Junior Blind sprint title.

Steve had a dream to drive fast cars, so took to the wheel and powered to a new world blind land speed record. He then set new onshore and offshore powerboat records. Holding records on land and sea, Steve then took to the air, and found international media fame as the world’s first blind pilot.

As a motivator he is second to none, giving a complete insight into his own personal achievements thus providing a new perspective for others, and inspiring real change and determination.

Steve’s services as a motivational speaker are in high demand – England’s Rugby team, Wasp RFC, England Cricket Team, Bolton Wanderers FC are just a sample of the sporting bodies who have used Steve in enforcing the “together a team doctrine”.

But breaking records is easier than breaking those barriers we set ourselves, and his deeply-moving story takes audiences on his journey from despair to success. The audience will learn that anyone can break barriers; that the path to true success is in our minds, and not our ability or environment.

A humorous, entertaining and painfully-honest speaker, he makes audiences laugh and cry. A genuine man, Steve sees no disability in his total lack of sight, but takes pride in sharing a true vision which many sighted people fail to recognise, leaving the audience motivated and inspired to achieve their own potential.
