Get 2016 Off to a Great Start with Our Motivational Speaking Opportunities


Motivation is what pushes a team to succeed, whatever industry they are involved in. Providing regular motivational talks keeps your employees focused and driven, all while offering guidance to help them succeed and the experience of a seasoned, influential professional.

There are few better ways to kick off 2016, and you couldn’t find many motivation speakers to rival Lee McQueen, winner of BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’ and co-founder of Raw Talent Academy. Workers seldom fail to respond to a burst of inspiration at the start of the year, and that’s just what our motivational speaking opportunities are here for.

Since snagging the top job from Lord Alan Sugar, Lee has harnessed his entrepreneurial spirit and unparalleled enthusiasm in order to inspire thousands of employees, entrepreneurs, and students across the United Kingdom at a diverse selection of venues, including:

  • The Great British Business Show
  • Olympus KeyMed Sales Seminar
  • Avon Sales Seminars
  • Hertfordshire Business Expo
  • Employability Week – Loughborough College
  • Global Entrepreneurship Week – Cardiff & Vale College
  • Apprenticeship week – City of Bristol College

Additionally, Lee has been a judge and compèred at industry awards such as:

  • National Sales Awards – 2012 & 2013
  • Marketing & Advertising & Recruitment Awards
  • Global Recruiter Awards

Only a handful of businesspeople can talk about besting over 20,000 other candidates to be crowned ‘The Apprentice’, but Lee is also able to speak about the skills and experience he developed during fourteen years in the recruitment industry and three years as an entrepreneur. With fantastic presentation skills, a warm demeanour, and an ability to connect with any audience, Lee is well-placed to bring something unique to your event.

Subjects include:

  • The journey to win The Apprentice.
  • How to foster the passion to succeed.
  • How to overcome your background.
  • The experience of working for one of the UK’s most respected entrepreneurs.
  • Creating a growing company from scratch.

Lee will share his knowledge and interact with the professionals who attend your event, providing a motivational speaking opportunity that is guaranteed to give attendees a renewed drive to succeed during 2016.

A motivational speaker can provide inspiration, knowledge, and a fresh perspective for your workers, and those benefits only grow stronger when you hire a high calibre individual.
