Roger Black MBE – Olympic athlete and motivational speaker

In 2016, Argos for Business worked with Roger Black MBE to explore the importance of motivation in the workplace.

Roger represented Great Britain at the highest level of world athletics for 14 years as an individual 400-metre runner and as a member of the 4×400 metres relay team. Since retirement from athletics, Roger has transferred his talents to television presenting and he is an accomplished motivational speaker.

Motivation and team spirit is most commonly found in sporting arenas, and individuals and organisations can gain knowledge of what drives sporting success, translating it into real-life, day-to-day activities. Working with Argos for Business, Roger combined his close understanding of motivation and self-development with his personal experiences to offer valuable insights.

Adrian Webster – top motivational speaker & best-selling author

In 2015, Argos for Business recruited Adrian Webster to help promote the cause of Employee Motivation Day.

Riot copper, milkman and salesman were just a few of the entries on Adrian Webster’s CV before he moved into the I.T industry and discovered an ability to motivate and inspire others. Today Adrian is probably the most entertaining and effective motivational speaker in the UK. He specialises in motivating people at work in a humorous and completely unique, down to earth style.

In 2010 Adrian followed in the footsteps of Sir Richard Branson, Kofi Annan, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Rudy Giuliani, Al Gore and Stelios Haji-Ioannou by addressing business leaders alongside former Prime Minister Tony Blair at the 2010 Swiss Economic Forum in Interlaken.

Working with Argos for Business to help raise awareness of Employee Motivation Day, Adrian has offered his support giving businesses advice on the best motivational techniques for empowering employees.
