Duncan Bannatyne OBE is one of Britain’s most successful serial entrepreneurs. Having built up a vast portfolio of leisure businesses as well as carving out a successful media career, Duncan is one of the best business speakers in the UK.
The business and branding speaker is perhaps best known for his scrutinising role as one of the original Dragons on the BBC’s Dragon’s Den, where his sharp comments and challenging questions put would-be entrepreneurs on the spot. Other TV appearances include ITV’s The Rich List and, more recently, Duncan fronted Duncan Bannatyne’s Seaside Rescue on Virgin 1, helping restore some of Britain’s fading coastal resorts.
Duncan is also an extremely successful writer; his memoir, Anyone Can Do It, was published in 2006 and he has since written a series of popular books on business.
As a committed fundraiser and supporter of many charities, including UNICEF and Scottish International Relief and Comic Relief, Duncan was presented an OBE in the 2004 Queen’s Birthday Honours for his services to charity.
Duncan Bannatyne is a perfect booking for after-dinner events. His wealth of business expertise and insider knowledge makes him an excellent entrepreneur speaker who can uplift and invigorate any corporate event.
