SWIMMING Olympic medal winner Steve Parry made a splash as guest speaker when Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd held its Christmas partners forum, co-hosted by its legal partners Chadwick Lawrence.
The forum was held in the newly refurbished BTR UK suite at the Galpharm Stadium and was attended by the stadium’s partners and local businesses, who came together for the networking event.
Steve Parry gave a motivational talk about his career and explained how the skills he learnt in training apply to business – such as the importance of setting goals and working towards them. He also told some funny anecdotes about meeting the Queen and his first reporting assignment with the BBC when he got mistaken for Michael Phelps and was then a massive hit on YouTube.
Steve was captain of the Great Britain swimming team at the Athens Olympics, where he won a bronze medal.
