Neil Laughton's business success grew from humble beginnings; he worked first as door-to-door office equipment salesman before founding a group of companies in the construction industry. He grew the organisation to £40m turnover, and then sold the business to a FTSE 100 company. He has since founded the Business Leadership Academy, a new airline City Airways and he is a Business Angel investor.
Expedition Leader - Whilst building his business, Neil Laughton has organised and led expeditions all over the world. Neil is one of the few Britons to complete the Explorers Grand Slam - climbing the highest mountain on each continent and skiiing to both the Geographic North and South Poles.
An experienced mountaineer, Neil has made twelve first ascents in Greenland and completed the 7 Summits (reaching the summit of Mt. Everest with Bear Grylls in 1998). Neil was caught at 26,000ft on Everest during the infamous storm of 1996 that killed eight people and injured many more. Neil is able to draw on experiences such as these to deliver powerful messages on leadership and teamwork.
Neil loves the challenge of inspiring, organising, fundraising and leading teams on adventurous expeditions. He has trekked unsupported across South Georgia and participated in the Cockleshell Heroes Memorial Expedition. Neil's great sense of fun is reflected in many expeditions too: from piloting the world's first road legal bio-fuelled flying car to Timbuktu (including a flight across the Straits of Gibraltar and across the Sahara Desert); jet-skiing around the UK and playing golf (with an orange ball) at the North Pole. In 2012, Neil led the Scott Memorial Expedition arriving at the South Pole exactly 100 years after Captain Scott. Neil organised a commemorative game of cricket on arrival.
Neil is passionate about sharing his experience, skills and knowledge though speaking and encouraging others. He is Chief Leader of Project New Horizons, an annual programme of youth development for kids in the care system (NEETs).
Speaking Style - Neil Laughton tailors each talk using awe-inspiring imagery and footage from his expeditions and has powerful messages about leadership and teamwork to share.
