Why you should book speaker Steve McNicholas
- Steve has led successful teams and businesses across several industries (banking, consumer, private equity) and geographies and will honestly admit to having the bumps and bruises that comes from leading teams to win, achieve and succeed. He feels you just have to have a few scars to prove you’ve been through the battles!
- For well over a decade, Steve has sought to speak to hundreds of ‘successful’ individuals in several countries, varying sectors and hugely different backgrounds. In a deeply personal quest to explore what, how and why success happens for individuals, he began to notice a pattern, a sequence, a ‘code’ that was consistent in all. This insight formed the basis for both of his books on the subject and led him to leave corporate life to follow this passion to inform and inspire others to ‘unlock the Code’ for themselves, their teams or their organisations.
- In researching for his books, Steve also began to understand his own journey to success. From a failed education to running a major UK banking network. From financial despair during the banking crisis of 2008 to best-selling author and international speaker, Steve knows the power and impact of the SUCCESS Code® and is now inspiring and engaging audiences internationally with such insight.
Before he became a leading motivational speaker Steve McNicholas has led several successful teams and businesses across the globe. He has held executive roles at RBS Group, TransUnion, and worked for several years in private equity. He decided to step away from corporate life a few years ago to pursue his lifelong interest in understanding and capturing the ‘secrets’ to succeeding and how he could help develop winners in business and also in life as well!
His first book, Recipe for Success, was co-authored with New York Times best-selling author Jack Canfield and reached best-seller status upon release. Steve later published his follow-up book in 2019, Unlock the SUCCESS Code® – 7 Steps to Succeed in Life and Work. The book has already achieved best-seller status on both Amazon UK and Amazon US.
Currently, speaker Steve McNicholas advises several businesses on the challenges they face and is retained to help teach, coach and mentor the management and leadership teams of these organisations to succeed against the various challenges they face. He has also been invited to Harvard Business School to share and develop his expertise on how to maintain success and excellence in any organisation.
As well as speaking, Steve also offers group coaching programs, seminars, and leadership workshops to further share the insights and ‘Code Blocks’ to winning, achieving, and succeeding, professionally and personally!
Steve McNicholas has a reputation for being funny, personable, conscientious, and just ridiculously easy to work with; he is an excellent fit for all kinds of events.
