David Bryon

Former MD of BMI Baby

If you want a motivational speaker who can inject humour into their presentations then David Bryon – former managing director of British low-cost airline bmibaby Limited – is the ideal candidate.

The bmibaby company was a popular choice for flying from East Midlands and Birmingham airports to various destinations around the UK and Europe. Byron draws from his time at the helm there – originally as commercial director then managing director – to deliver often hilarious stories and anecdotes to appreciative audiences.

What makes David’s talks so interesting is that he delivers the perfect mix of eyebrow-raising tales of what goes on behind the scenes when running an airline – either on board the aircraft or at the check-in desks – with how to develop a successful business (bmibaby achieved £400m turnover in four years) through the highest levels of leadership and customer service.

Among the organisations that have asked David Byron to be their motivational speaker are Deutsche Bank, HSBC, BP, Kuwait’s government, Chevron, Sun MicroSystems, Accenture and Barclays Bank. A former host of his own television talk show in the USA, David is also in demand on British TV and radio, with regular appearances on BBC News, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 5 Live and Sky News.
