Pete Wolstencroft & Derek Spence

Pete “The Writer” Wolstencroft and Derek “The Fighter” Spence are motivational speaking duo who combine their diverse experiences to deliver interesting and unusual talks about personal development and team motivation at corporate functions, specialist seminars and business events.

The former, harbored ambitions to become a boxer, but soon realized he wasn’t rally built for it and, with a heavy heart at having to give up on his dream, turned his attentions to e-publishing and journalism. This route would prove more successful – Pete worked for several years writing a regular column for a major Spanish newspaper and carved out his niche as a freelance journalist and travel writer.

Meanwhile Derek, a former professional footballer, was born in Northern Ireland and grew up at a time when the country was undergoing increasingly intense internal conflict. He successfully fought his way out of this world, becoming a footballer and making a name for himself.

As a duo Pete and Derek have come together to share their very different but complimentary experiences – they specialize in all things Spanish, and their mutual travels around the country and particular interest in the Extremadura region have provided them with a wealth of inspiring and interesting stories.

As well as this, the pair also offer talks on the niche subject of publishing, e-publishing and the Maple System. The two complement one another and their work as speakers is popular at specialist publishing business events.
