Neil Laughton is a former Captain and Troop Commander in the SAS and has backgrounds in both adventure and business.
Having started off as a door-to-door office equipment salesman working for commission only, Neil eventually sat down with his friend and decided to start a new business with a £4k investment. Neil then became Founding Director and Executive Chairman of OPL Group multi-million-pound property development, construction, commercial interiors and office furniture group, when turnover reached £40 million in 2010 Neil sold the business to Balfour Beatty Plc. He has since founded the Business Leadership Academy, City Airways and is a Business Angel investor.
Neil is also a keen adventurer, having led expeditions all over the world, in some of the most hostile environments on earth, and was caught at 26,000ft on Everest during the infamous storm of 1996 that killed eight people. He has scaled at least 12 previously unclimbed peaks as well as the highest mountain on each of the 7 continents, piloted the world’s first flying car to Timbuktu, jet-skied around the UK with Bear Grylls and played golf at the North Pole. Neil’s adventures have led him to feature in two documentaries, ‘Mission Everest’ and ‘The Flying Car’ in which he took the world’s first road legal bio-fuelled flying car on a 10,000km journey from London to Timbuktu.
Adventures like these combined with his business achievements make him a great speaker as he tailors each talk using awe-inspiring imagery and footage from his expeditions and has powerful messages about leadership and teamwork.
Neil is an inspirational speaker. He has a fascinating story to tell and draws relevant lessons from both success and failure.
