Corporate Speaker

If you require a motivational, keynote or guest speaker Lee Spencer will deliver.

An enthusiastic speaker with an incredible tale Lee will have you enthralled. His story and life experiences are so grounded in reality and yet so far removed from most of our experiences that his tale is one that demands attention.

School Speaker

Lee initially takes as large a group as possible for an hour long period where he captivates them by telling his story. This he then uses as a vehicle for getting across the core message which is that failure is an integral part of success.
