About Me | Motivational Speaker in Bradford, Leeds and Beyond

My name is Leon Pryce, a multiple-award winning ex-rugby league professional. Having brought my on-field career to a close, I now share my recollections and life lessons as a motivational speaker, an after dinner speaker or a keynote speaker at functions and events in Bradford, Leeds, Yorkshire and nationwide.


With a background in professional sport, I have experienced soaring highs and crushing lows. I know what it takes to put in the work to become a champion, and how hard it is to stay there. As an inspirational speaker and sports speaker, I strive to entertain and motivate

 audiences in Bradford, Leeds and the surrounding Yorkshire areas with the knowledge and insight I’ve accrued over the years.

A Keynote Speaker from the Fields of Rugby League

Before embarking on my career as a motivational speaker and after dinner speaker in the Bradford, Leeds and wider Yorkshire area, I played rugby league for Bradford Bulls, St Helens, Catalans Dragons and Hull FC.


Between 1998 and 2017, I made a grand total of 492 appearances for these clubs. Internationally, I represented both England and Great Britain at the very pinnacle of the sport.


To walk away from the game with 4 Super League titles, 5 Challenge Cups and 3 World Challenge Cups fills me with great pride. But I’m not a man to rest on my laurels.


Now, as a sports speaker and inspirational speaker at events in Bradford, Leeds and nationwide, I aim to make the same impact. Whether it’s as an after dinner speaker at a sporting function, a keynote speaker at a company conference, or a motivational speaker for a team building exercise, I guarantee professionalism to organisers and audiences alike.


I’ve packed a lot into my life so far and as a keynote speaker, after dinner speaker or inspirational speaker, I tailor my anecdotes to suit the tone of any function in Bradford, Leeds, Yorkshire or anywhere in the country.


With a combination of fearlessness, authenticity and awareness, I bring the same work ethic to my role as a sports speaker and motivational speaker as I did to my rugby career.
