Keynote Speakers


What would you do if you lost your right arm at the age of 18? Would you give up all hope or would you fight on despite the difficulties that would certainly lie ahead? 

Not only did Steven fight on but he made an astounding positive change proving to everyone and himself that we are all capable of overcoming obstacles and that they can become your greatest asset. The successes that followed have been largely created by Steven’s determination and incredible work ethic. 
His accomplishments have been truly remarkable, his life is full of positivity and as he says “Opportunities are everywhere, don’t be held back by phantom barriers!”


Husband of the inspiring Dr Kate Granger MBE - Co-founder of the #hellomynameis campaign - Global Campaign Ambassador

‘Play the cards in life you’ve been dealt’ – these words are what Kate and I lived by and we certainly lived life to the full everyday – even before Kate’s terminal cancer diagnosis.



Hello, my name is Chris and I am one half of the awesome duo that is ‘Chris & Kate’. Our lives were turned upside down around 6 years ago when Kate was diagnosed with terminal cancer whilst we were holidaying in California. 

Since that point we concertinaed our lives into a shorter period and crammed a huge amount into Kate’s time on this planet. Along the way we rose over £320,000 for good causes, travelled the world, met many celebrities and royalty and started a global campaign that improves patient care through the basic message of introductions entitled #hellomynameis.  Kate’s legacy is huge and her name will live on forever through her legacy and various awards named in her honour. 

Kate and I were fortunate enough to know what was coming and to be able to make plans accordingly for both Kate and for myself post Kate’s death.  I am now on a 12 month sabbatical from my career and actively talk at conferences around the world to ensure the campaign continues for many generations to come.


Thank you all for playing your part in keeping Kate’s legacy alive and improving healthcare.


Through adversity comes legacy.
