Tim Campbell, Founder, Bright Ideas Trust and owner of his own small business, Tim is also the co-author of one of Amazon’s Top 10 business books for 2010, ‘What’s Your Bright Idea?’
Tim Campbell, was awarded the MBE for Enterprise Culture in the 2012 New Year’s Honours List and is a speaker who is passionate about the power of business. Whether it be creating wealth and employment or changing the world, Tim believes that business is the catalyst of modern change.
The charismatic 34-year-old, who was the darling of television audiences of The Apprentice, has gone on to set up his own company and is now sharing his experiences with business audiences who want to learn the secrets of his success and discover why Sir Alan Sugar regarded him as a "great asset". Unlike prize winners from other shows, the human resource specialist wasn't a one hit wonder when the spotlight faded.
After landing a one year contract with the health and beauty division of Amstrad, he remained in employment for a further year until announcing recently that he was giving up his GBP 100,000 a year job to start a male grooming business of his own as well as The Bright Ideas Trust, a social initiative to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Tim also performs a number of key roles with his new found position in society. He is the Child's Ambassador for London, and was appointed by Beverley Hughes, the Children's Minister, to focus on the particular problems of the capital's young people. As well as this he is also closely involved with the Jack Petchey Foundation, the ACLT and is as an active supporter of the NSPCC, Learn Direct and Connexions.
He is the face of the British Library's campaign to promote their services or to be 'the human face of business' as the Guardian put it.
