Many athletes explore the opportunities involved with public speaking during their career; sharing exciting stories of their professional experiences to supplement their income, and potentially prepare them for a post-competition career in after-dinner speaking or the media industry.

As part of its recent Athletes Connect Week, the BAC was delighted to welcome trained actor and public speaking coach, Sean Wilton, for a virtual presentation: ‘Taking Your Story to the Next Level’.

You can watch Sean’s full presentation here, and read his step-by-step checklist for a successful speaking engagement below.


Sean’s presentation was one of a selection hosted by the BAC during Athletes Connect Week. If you would like to see a focus on another area which you believe would benefit athletes, then please contact the BAC’s Athlete Engagement Manager, Kristian Thomas, at
