William Butler-Adams OBE




The statistics behind the company run by motivational speaker Will Butler-Adams are impressive to say the least. Brompton Bicycles designs and produces over 35,000 folding pushbikes a year, around 50% of the parts are manufactured at the London factory and 80% of sales are outside the UK.

What is perhaps even more impressive is the level of passion that Will has for the business, which began as a cottage industry and grew into an internationally recognised brand which Will proudly describes as “urban public transport”.

After riding on to a conference stage on one of his company’s bikes, as a motivational speaker Will Butler-Adams holds the attention of delegates with his eye-opening views on how to create a successful business. This includes having a clear vision but one that doesn’t necessarily fit the traditional template that most other businesses tend to follow.

Listed in Who‘s Who, Will is a firm believer in the ability of the UK manufacturing industry to create products that the world wants and to grow exponentially while other sectors continue to struggle with economic expansion.

Butler-Adams – who says it is important to take risks, “especially when you are young and have nothing to lose” – has worked for ICI, Dupont, and The Vintners’ Co, among others. He was also chosen as one of the champions of the ‘Make It In Great Britain’ campaign and became a trustee of Speakers4Schools.
