Perry McCarthy’s incredible story is legendary. He is a championship winning racing driver, best-selling author and was ‘The Stig’ from the BBC Top Gear motoring show.

With over 1500 corporate appearances to date, Perry is in high demand to deliver inspirational and motivational speeches linking his unique experience and attitude to the world of business and its requirements.

From working 14 hours per day 7 days a week on North Sea oil rigs to fund his early career, to finally becoming a Grand Prix driver, he constantly overcame huge hurdles, including serious injury, to pursue his dream. Starting late in life and with no money, Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone told McCarthy that his chances of making it to F1 were about a million to one against.

However, Perry’s bubbly character coupled with his determination, resilience, and absolute refusal to concede defeat beat those odds and has made him a highly popular personality within the sport. Perry McCarthy entertains and engages audiences by speaking with passion and his famous humour and about the fiercely competitive demands of international motor racing and what it takes as an individual to beat the odds and create opportunities.

The Telegraph headlined him as ‘a new cult hero’ and America’s Sunday Express called him ‘a comedian locked inside a racing driver’s body.

Perry was superb speaker at our recent business conference and mixed the perfect dose of fast paced humour, interest, business messages and fun! The delegates loved it and bombarded him with over half an hour of questions during the open session at the end of his speech! I am not sure how we will top this for next year!"
