Olympic bronze medallist

Executive coach and property investment entrepreneur

A three-time Olympian, 11-time UK Champion and the current British record holder for javelin, Goldie can justifiably be described as one of Britain’s greats. Recently retired following 20 years of international athletics, Goldie now runs a successful property investment business.

Goldie’s career was by no means a smooth one; dogged with injury at the most crucial of times, being told twice by surgeons that she would never throw again, undergoing no less than eight operations she was forced to dig deep and muster every ounce of determination and resilience to remain at the top of her sport.

In 2008 at the Beijing Olympics Goldie superbly broke the British record but agonisingly missed a place on the podium by just 38 cm; eleven years later however Goldie finally grasped the coveted Olympic medal following a positive doping test to the Silver medallist.

Prior to the 2012 London Olympics Goldie was on top form having beaten all of her closest rivals in the run up to the games. She again broke her own British record at the London Diamond League with an opening throw of 66.17m. This performance beat all of her Olympic rivals by over two metres with only three weeks to go to the 2012 Games but elation turned to immense agony as an elbow injury, sustained during that competition, destroyed her chances of reaching the 2012 Olympic final.

Goldie once again fought back from injury and in 2014 was rewarded for her efforts when she captained the British Athletics team to the most successful European Championship in their history in 2014.

Still a hugely respected servant of her sport Goldie has recently been re-elected by her Team GB peers to serve a second term on the British Olympic Association’s Athlete Commission.

Goldie is a fantastic speaker delivering talks on winning attitudes, resilience, confidence, dealing with set-back along with delivering key leadership messages. Goldie can talk first hand on the subject of sharing key messages from sport to business and will be a great asset to a conference or any internal employee or external client event.

“Goldie is bright, articulate, has a great story to tell and is very funny. The audience were clearly inspired by her story and were able to take the messages about confidence, determination and attitude and apply that to their own professional and personal lives. The was made possible by the way Goldie cleverly related her key messages to our business environment. Enabling that transition made her talk relevant and real to everyone in the room. There is business values in a good motivational speaker like Goldie and I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again” (Holly Marshall – Head Business Lead Major Global Events, O2)
