Stef Reid MBE

Stef Reid is a Paralympic long jumper and sprinter who competes for Great Britain. She is a five-time World Record holder, and was the long jump world champion in 2017. With a bronze medal from the 2008 Paralympics, and two silver medals from the 2012 and 2016 Paralympics, one silver and one bronze from the Parapan American Games, three bronze and one silver medal from the Paralympic World Cup, two bronze and a gold from the IPC World Championships, one gold from the IPC European Championships, one gold from the Disability Athletics Challenge, and a bronze from the Grand Prix, it’s fair to say that Stef’s trophy cabinet is bulging.

She has an honours degree in biochemistry, and away from the track she works as a broadcaster, actor, model, and professional speaker. She was even a finalist on Celebrity Masterchef (2018).

Type Of Speaker


Stef has worked with us on numerous occasions, bringing a magic and passion to our internal and external audiences alike. Most recently she delivered a powerful keynote speech at the Future Leaders event, which brought together many of BP’s highest potential individuals from around the world. Stef possesses an extraordinary ability to engage every person in the room, sharing her perspectives in a way that is at once engaging, energizing and thought-provoking. Stef has a natural speaking talent and an ability to make us all think again about what is possible in life.

Listening to Paralympian and model Stef Reid describing how she had successfully adapted to becoming disabled was inspirational. Stef eloquently articulated the problems of striving to conform to the narrow stereotype of ‘normal’ and encouraged the audience to challenge the current paradigm. She emphasised the need to celebrate difference rather than view it as a reason for exclusion.

I had the honour of watching Stef in the Olympic stadium in 2012. Her story had everyone on the edge of their seats, laughing out loud and in the next moment reaching for their tissues. Stef is a true champion who is not only an inspiration on the track but also on the stage. She brought the house down and I’d pay to watch time after time. A joy to work with and an honour to know her.
