Karren Brady

As a woman in two male-dominated industries – football and business – Karren Brady knows a thing or two about motivation and inspiration. Her fierce determination to succeed in industries where she was already placed at a disadvantage paved the way for many more incredible women to make their mark, which is certainly something to capture an audience.

She’s worked across a variety of industries, including being the chairman and CEO of football clubs, a presenter for shows such as Loose Women and appears on TV next to Sir Lord Alan Sugar in The Apprentice.

Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls earnt his place in the ‘household name’ category through his many feats as an adventurer. He became the youngest Brit to take on the many struggles of reaching the peak of Mount Everest, has suffered and recovered from a broken back after a parachute jump and has turned his passion for exploration and survival into a flourishing career.

When it comes to motivational speaking, he can talk on both the motivation he must have whilst tackling life-threatening adventures and too of the motivation to succeed in a tough career industry.

From a regular background, Eddie the Eagle went on to become a worldwide star, building his fame and success on nothing but sheer determination. He became Britain’s first ski jumper in the Olympics and, though he didn’t come anywhere close to winning a medal, the world fell in love with his character and determination.

In terms of motivation, he can talk about his time working up from a complete novice to a sportsman at the Olympics and finding the inspiration to get back up after not having won. He still holds the British Olympic record for ski-jumping at 71 metres.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

As one of the most celebrated British explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes is no stranger to the topic of motivation. He’s had to keep his own up on strenuous journeys to remote parts of the globe, facing challenges both physically and mentally that would send most of us back home! He can inspire, entertain and motivate like no other as an event speaker.
