Biography

At one stage, he was European, Commonwealth and World Champion at the same time. As a speaker, Daley reflects upon his highly influential career, offering his audience an insight into the skills to sporting success. In both 1980 and 1984, the sports motivational speaker was the Olympic Decathlon champion and, in 1978, 1982 and 1986, he broke several world records for the amount of Decathlon points gained.

At one time voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year, Daley is known for his commitment- it’s what people love about him. However, it is this strong personality that makes him such a driven athlete and a brilliant Olympic speaker. An expert in motivation and leadership, Daley’s ability to push himself beyond his perceived capabilities is invaluable at events. For corporate clients, he can inspire an improved workplace culture, built on teamwork.

True to character, when he left the world of athletics in 1992 Daley went into semi-professional football, putting on the strips of Mansfield Town and Wimbledon. His versatility as a decathlete means that Daley can put his hand to just about everything and be successful, including his time as a sports pundit for BBC TV. Additionally, he was an ambassador for the 2012 London Olympic Games, using his passion for sports and education throughout the bid stage.
