After being afflicted with polio as a youngster, Ade refused to let disability get in the way of his love for sport and became ‘the Michael Jordan of wheelchair basketball.’ He represented GB at the European and World Championships, and won Paralympic bronze. He has since trekked through rainforests and hauled himself to the top of a 5,000’ volcano. Ade describes how he realised his condition wasn’t a big obstacle, and how we can all set our own boundaries.

Arguably one of the greatest tennis players of all time, eight-time grand slam winner and Olympic gold medalist Andre speaks about philanthropy and the power to improve communities and the lives of others.

Ben is the first sailor to win medals at five Olympics. After seeing off the Danish boat in Weymouth Bay he masterminded tactics for the victorious US team in the America’s Cup - with his sights now firmly set on leading a British challenge. Ben demonstrates the physicality, techniques and strategic nous needed to compete at the highest level. He might also confess that his blocking tactics, now universally used, once led him to require police protection.

John was the first Brit to play at the top level of US basketball, once declining a $17m transfer fee. He’s now a respected cognitive psychologist and founder of a major community sport initiative in Manchester. John brings his research and competitive experience to bear on the management challenges: how do you improve resilience, reduce stress and turn managers into coaches? And how do you distinguish between effective and ineffective motivational tactics?

Keith has coached junior and senior runners in both Olympic and Paralympic competition – including the 2012 men’s amputee 4x100m team. His athletes won one gold and two silver medals in London. Bringing his sporting know-how together with a background in management training, Keith shares techniques to build trust between one another – like a relay team. Getting audiences on their feet, he shows how they can develop the will to improve their performance.

Steve won medals in three consecutive Olympics and set three world javelin records. He was in the top ten for a decade, ranked No1 for three years. Steve shows how to plan for success, believe in yourself, enjoy rivalry and stay passionate about what you’re doing. He also demonstrates the cost of complacency and what happens when you rest on your laurels: “If you want to continue to be the best in the world, you must behave and compete as if you’re only the second best.”

In an extraordinary show of endurance, Mark cycled around the world in 194 days, taking 81 days off the record. In 2015 he smashed the Cairo-to-Cape Town route by 17 days, ascending 190,000 feet during 439 hours in the saddle. His approach is straightforward: “Test your limits - but don’t allow the big picture to frighten you. Devise a series of manageable targets, develop consistent work output, and teach yourself to calculate and control the risks.””

Boris Becker is still the youngest ever Men’s Singles Champion at Wimbledon. He amassed 49 titles in all, including 6 Grand Slams.
