What I Offer…

I've been in business since I was 16 years old and founded P4D | Parcels for Delivery in 2005. I'm also an inspirational speaker in business.

P4D | Parcels for Delivery

I used to ship goods online, so I know only too well how expensive it is and how time consuming it can be inputting delivery addresses. I found a way to automate this process and a way to save myself a lot of money. Many people don't realise you can send parcels online, or that it can be a lot cheaper and a quicker process, so I wanted to share my ideas. P4D is now a very well established, hugely successful business, offering heavily discounted courier services to individuals who currently have to queue to send their parcels, and smaller businesses who send parcels regularly, but can't get a low enough tariff directly with the courier companies who deal with larger volumes. Customers tell us time and time again how easy our site is to use, plus you can carbon offset your delivery www.p4d.co.uk/green and Round Up Your Pound for charity www.p4d.co.uk/charity

Inspirational Business Speaker

Steve has never been employed. He left school at 16 and founded his very first business selling reconditioned TV's. Between 1992 and 2005 he founded another 7 companies that provided him with only a lifestyle income.  Always wanting to go one better, he founded his 9th company P4D www.p4d.co.uk in 2005. Steve knew this was the business that had the potential to be a multi-million pound success, but common fears almost held him back from taking the risk.

A true serial entrepreneur with a naive 'child-like' approach in business, that Steve claims is a major contributor to his success. Learn how Steve overcame his fears and achieved ₤1.2m revenue in his 2nd year of business.  Six years on and his company is a thriving success; employing 20+ staff and in 2012 Steve stepped down as managing director leaving it to his very capable team to take care of.  A difficult task for any business owner to do.

In 2009 Steve gave his first inspirational keynote to 300 Young Enterprise students in his home town. He was incredibly proud to be able to offer them an honest, but motivational insight in to the highs and lows of business. Steve gets a real buzz from helping others. Now a member of the PSA (Professional Speaking Association) He now travels all over the UK speaking at various events and is looking forward to speaking at international venues in the future.

Also look out for his first business book which includes his life story 'Big Fish, Little Fish' Expected to be out in February 2013

Testimonials can be found via his linkedIn profile above. Please connect with him.

You can book Steve to speak at one of your groups and he'll share his experiences of what it took him to achieve the success he has today.

Why I’m good at what I do…

Member Testimonials

  • Steve is an extremely motivational,effective and inspirational speaker who knows his subject through his own Business experience. He comes across as very open and responsive to his audience which makes for an interactive and engaging presentation.
  • I met Steve at 4N Godalming when he gave a 4sight about the personal approach needed to build a £multimillion business. Absolutely the best 4Sight I have heard in 3.5 years in 4N. He had me believing that I COULD do it. Checked his P4D website. Wished I met him earlier - could've saved £s on parcels
  • Steve very generously wrote a chapter for the Cancer Research UK fundraising book, 'At The Sharp End', giving his business experience for the benefit of small business owners. Thanks for helping to make the project such a success!
