Audley Harrison MBE

Olympic Gold Medallist and Professional Heavyweight Boxer

Audley Harrison has a riveting personal story of triumph over adversity to tell. Growing up in an impoverished neighbourhood and having been expelled from two schools, Audley found his way to Feltham young offenders institution. With no qualifications, and a criminal record, Audley embarked on an incredible journey of self-determination, discipline and goal setting. Despite his obvious disadvantages, he found a way to win in life, and turn his life around.

Audley is an Olympic Gold Medallist in Boxing with a distinguished background of achievements in the boxing ring, event production, boxing promotions and business start-ups. He has leveraged his business acumen to penetrate the challenging market of boxing promotions and successfully innovated a new business model for amateur boxers to turn professional. Audley founded and operated A Force Promotions in England that ensured revenue & profits were managed through his own company, bringing the BBC back into professional boxing after a 15 year hiatus.

He challenged the politics of amateur boxing by forming the Boxing Union of England, and successfully instigated a campaign that led Audley to the Houses of Parliament to make amateur boxing a lottery funded sport, and included in the World Class Performance Plan. Audley’s gold medal at the Sydney Olympics is credited as a catalyst for the success of the boxing program in 2004, 2008, and London 2012.

Audley announced his retirement from Boxing in March 2015.

Having achieved global success and amassed a string of titles, Audley Harrison MBE has a wealth of fascinating insights and entertaining anecdotes to engage a variety of audiences. Since he retired from boxing he has been unable to shake his passion for the sport and his enthusiasm for the fight game shines through in speeches. Audley is also perfectly placed to deliver motivational speeches to a wide range of audiences and will truly inspire them to maximise their potential. The boxing legend successfully fuses the key messages of your organisation with the unique motivational techniques he used to reach the top. Audley’s own motto ‘Never Ever Give Up’ encapsulates his whole approach to life, a way of living life he skilfully communicates to his business audiences.

In 2011, Audley and his wife founded an upscale beauty salon in Calabasas, CA. Salon Nuuvo is now the premier Beauty Salon in the city as recognised through Yelp and Patch. Audley’s expertise as a marketing and branding expert, adeptly instigated various marketing campaigns to advertise the Salon to the affluent community.

Audley always leaves his audiences captivated by his engaging and uplifting message.
