The Business Continuity Institute is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for the BCI World Conference and Exhibition will be Prof Steve Peters – consultant psychiatrist, bestselling author and Head of Sports Psychology at UK Athletics.
In addition to his extraordinary success with British cycling, he has also worked on twelve other Olympic disciplines as well as English Premier League football and the English rugby and football teams.,ppp
Beginning his career as a maths teacher, Prof Peters then switched to medicine and specialised in patients with severe and dangerous personality disorders. His focus is now on how the mind can enable people to reach optimum performance in all walks of life. Working with sportspeople at the top of their game, he gives them the confidence to come back from defeat and out-perform the opposition.
Prof Peters has been described as a “genius” by Team GB cycling coach Dave Brailsford and many decorated Olympians such as Chris Hoy, Victoria Pendleton and Bradley Wiggins have all attributed their success to him.

In his keynote speech, Prof Peters will explain his method to help us understand and control what he describes as our ‘inner chimp’ – the irrational, impulsive, seemingly impossible part of our mind that often holds us back. Examining motivation, confidence and communication, he will show that competition is as much in the mind as it is in the field or on the track – or in the office.
