An inspiring British entrepreneur, Lara Morgan has a business acumen like few others. As a keynote speaker she offers expert advice on business and how to rise to the top, sell, and motivate both yourself and your team. Hugely ambitious from an early age, Lara moved from Hong Kong to London as a 23 year old in the hope of finding employment. It proved harder than anticipated in the economic climate of the time, but her dream didn’t end there. She was soon turning up at the doorstep of The Dorchester Hotel in London in a second hand suit, plugging shower caps, soap and sewing kits.
She had already earned experience in various areas of business in Hong Kong, Scotland and the Middle East before she formed Pacific Direct. There she sourced and manufactured brand licensed toiletries for the hospitality business and attempted to sell them to plush hotels in and around the London area. The business took off and over seventeen years she built a global company. Her success was tied to her belief in her ideas, herself and her team. She constantly challenged herself to go further and thus was able to build a business from the ground up with nothing but a bank loan.
Lara is one of the top leadership speakers for business of modern times. She covers themes such as motivation and inspiration, as well as more practical skills like sales and logistics. Lara is an award-nominated entrepreneur with experience that can prove vital to a budding business, groups of entrepreneurs, business schools and professionals in the marketing and sales fields. As one of the leading inspirational business speakers, Lara excels to provide stellar insight into the world of business.
By setting herself targets on a regular basis and by constantly renewing them, Lara was able to push the business through the start-up phase where so many businesses fail due to lack of drive or passion. In doing so, the company became a leading presence in the giveaway market. A founding member of the Young Entrepreneurs Organisation (EO), finalist for the Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the Year Award and three-time finalist in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, there is no doubting Lara’s commitment to becoming the best in the business. Her award nominations and wins make Lara the ideal host for award ceremonies and gala dinners.
