Home / About Bryan Steel

Bryan Steel is an former professional racing cyclist. He represented Great Britain at the 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics. As a boy, Bryan Steel was much like many boys, uninterested in school, and not very athletic. Then he discovered a talent, cycling. This gave him an outlet and a passion.

He made the British cycling team, which at the time was not a team recognised for excellence. Bryan participated in a revolutionary change management programme that catapulted the team to the world stage and Bryan with it, going on to win, win and win on the world and Olympic stage. From scrawny, negative schoolboy to World Class athlete, Bryan now shares the secrets of his success through his own development programme ‘Winning Mindset’. With the formula for success being as applicable to the board room and business environment as it is to the playing field. Bryan has developed a range of programs which inspire and motivate people into more positive activities, which will maximise their true potential. The programmes, from motivational talks, one-to-one mentoring to team workshops, are delivered to both corporations, SME’s and sports organisations.
