Audley Harrison MBE


Former professional boxer and Olympic champion, Audley Harrison is a widely recognised name in the world of British boxing. Now a leading name in the speaker’s circuit, Audley’s inspirational story of self-belief and dedication incorporated with motivating words is unmatched.

Having first captured the hearts of the nation in 2000, when he became the first British Heavyweight Olympic Champion at the Sydney Olympics, Audley turned himself to professional boxing. During this time, Audley embarked on an incredibly successful full-time boxing career, where he became the European Champion in 2010, took part in the fight for the World Heavyweight title in 2011, and in 2006 and 2013 he won the Prize-fighter tournament.

Audley suffered many setbacks on his journey through boxing, however he used these setbacks as encouragement, never giving up, he demonstrated a true drive and determination by dusting off and trying again. Audley was nicknamed the ‘A-Force’ and he certainly was a force to be reckoned with in the boxing ring and boardroom.
