Neil Laughton

Leadership Expert, Business Entrepreneur & Adventurer


Teamwork, leadership, handling change, setting goals, coping with a challenge and getting through difficult times are all subject areas that motivational speaker Neil Laughton covers in the talks that he delivers for clients at a wide range of private and corporate events.

Audiences lap up the words of wisdom from business entrepreneur and adventurer Laughton as he recounts his personal development from being a door-to-door salesman to being the owner of a £40m company to being a business angel investor. In between times, Laughton has set up the City Airways airline and founded the Business Leadership Academy.

As a motivational speaker, Neil Laughton also draws on his extensive experience as an adventurer, which has seen him leading expeditions all around the world. These include skiiing to the south and north poles and scaling the highest mountain peaks in every continent (he has climbed to the top of Mount Everest with fellow adventurer and motivational speaker Bear Grylls). However, insight can sometimes come from adversity and Laughton was part of the Everest-climbing team in 1996 that was hit by a fierce storm that took the lives of eight people and injured several others.

Other exhilarating expeditions that Neil Laughton has been on include taking a flying car to Timbuktu via the Sahara Desert and trekking solo across South Georgia in the Falkland Islands.
