Chris Boardman


Gold Medallist Cyclist and Motivational Speaker

Chris Boardman is a gold medal-winning cyclist and co-founder of Boardman Bikes and a respected speaker on building a high-performance team and developing innovation culture.

Before the recent successes of British Cycling, there had been very few outstanding talents that achieved gold. Chris Boardman broke that mold and in 1992 won gold at the Barcelona Olympics astride the infamous Lotus bike. It was their first cycling gold medal for 72 years.

Part of Chris’s success was the time he invested in cutting edge technology that would give him the most significant advantage over his competitors. The iconic image of the Lotus machine and pointy helmet became the benchmark for all cycling teams move forward. Chris would later lead the research and development team for Team GB at the Beijing Games.

Besides his achievements on the track, Chris has also competed in Tour de France, winning in three stages.

After retiring, Chris set up Boardman Bikes, the most respected and fastest growing British Bike Brand in decades, and went on to establish a name in journalism writing for various publications, including Diver magazine and Pro Cycling. He has also worked as a commentator for ITV and the BBC covering major cycling events

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
