Pete Wolstencroft & Derek Spence

The Fighter & The Writer

Pete ‘the Writer’ Wolstencroft and Derek ‘the Fighter’ Spence are a pair of motivational speakers who use their combined experience to deliver interesting and unusual talks about personal development and team motivation at corporate functions, specialist publishing and travel seminars and business events. The Writer, Pete Wolstencroft did not begin life as a motivational speaker but rather had dreams of being a heavyweight boxer; lacking the speed, skill or stamina to accomplish such a goal however Pete turned to e-publishing and journalism, focusing on a the difficulty of making such a decision and the potential success of e-publishing in his work as a motivational speaker.

Before becoming an after dinner speaker Wolstencroft worked for several years writing a regular column for a major Spanish newspaper. Thanks to his own experience as both a freelance journalist and travel-writer Wolstencroft is an ideal choice for a corporate event; his understanding of the publishing industry is impressive and makes for engaging content from an after dinner speaker.

Spence, the Fighter, was born into an Ireland torn in differing directions by terrorism and politics; fighting his way out of this world, away from his council estate beginnings Spence became a professional footballer. The fight was not yet over however and, in his capacity as a motivational speaker, Spence explains how he continued to face adversity in his new role as an International football player in Spain. Thanks to his experience in football and sportsman career Derek Spence is an excellent choice for after dinner speaker at sports events and corporate functions.

As a duo Spence and Wolstencroft have come together to share their very different but complimentary experiences; as motivational speakers they specialize in all things Spanish; their mutual travels around the country and particular interest in the Extremadura region have provided them with a wealth of inspiring and interesting stories. As well as this Spence and Wolstencroft also offer talks on the niche subject of publishing, e-publishing and specifically The Maple System, the two complement one another and their work as after dinner speakers is  popular at specialist publishing business events.
