Perry McCarthy

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 is a ball of energy who captured our audience with his storytelling. He spent time before our event understanding our business to get to the heart of the messages in our content, so he could share stories of where his experience aligned with those. If you want a speaker who can bring lots of humour alongside real-life experiences that align with business challenges, look no further than Perry.”
