Tim Campbell MBE


Tim Campbell, currently Head of Client Services for Emerging Talent at Alexander Mann Solutions, was the first winner of BBC reality show The Apprentice in a comprehensive display of a multitude of business skills. He was catapulted into a world very different from his previous job as a Senior Planner at London Underground, but unlike others who attempted to make the most of their fifteen minutes of fame, Tim stayed with Lord Alan Sugar for nearly three years. He became Project Director of the Health & Beauty division within Amstrad plc and on his departure from the company Lord Sugar described him as a great asset.

A wonderful futurist speaker, Tim’s experience of a number of industries makes him an ideal personality to speak on what may be around the corner for business owners. Tim’s eloquence and mix of intriguing topics as a business speaker makes him one of the most desirable speakers on the after dinner speaker circuit. Tim formed the young entrepreneurs charity, The Bright Ideas Trust, after carrying out research of unemployed 16 to 29 year olds. Tim’s research revealed that thousands of young people were striving to set up their own business but lacked key elements in order for those enterprises to become successful, namely investment, advice and encouragement.

The Bright Ideas Trust has generated successful start-up businesses and has sparked interest from young entrepreneurs and corporations alike. During his presentations as a futurist speaker, Tim expresses his belief that opportunities will always exist in business for those with confidence, perseverance and the ability to build strong relationships.

Campbell’s inspiring approach as a business speaker relates wonderfully with the audience, with his own personal experiences legitimising his presentation. He is co-author of one of Amazon’s Top 10 Business Books For 2010 What’s Your Bright Idea and the Mayor of London’s Ambassador for training and enterprise, so has an abundance of experience in many different areas of business to bring to your event.
