About

Many people are excellent speakers on business. Many people are excellent speakers on sport. It is very rare to find a speaker who can truly combine the two, based on his direct experience.

Andy McMenemy is best known through the British media when, in 2011, he set out to complete a World Record bid in an epic challenge to run 66 Ultra Marathons in 66 consecutive days in the 66 official cities of the UK, whilst raising money for ABF (Army Benevolent Fund). Despite crippling injuries, including a damaged Achilles tendon on day 2(!) and strong medical advice to abandon his attempt, he carried on running – and succeeded against the odds.

In 2012, he was chosen to carry the Olympic Torch in the run-up to the London 2012 Games.

Andy McMenemy worked in Senior Management roles in the motor industry for organisations with turnovers of £1.3billion and £500million: he practises what he preaches and he leads by example. He is committed to embracing challenges and constantly pushing beyond his own comfort zones in business and in his personal life.

Andy enjoys the privilege of inspiring, managing and mentoring individuals and sales teams, in diverse businesses of all sizes. He has always had a very strong work ethic – before the motor industry, he worked at a butcher's shop, in a supply depot and supplying fruit and vegetables to the Forces.

Prior to his ultra-marathon attempt, Andy successfully completed some of the World's toughest endurance races including the infamous Marathon des Sables and the Namibian Desert 24hr Ultra Marathon.

Speech Topics

Dream, Struggle, Victory
Andy McMenemy is an entertaining, thought provoking and inspiring speaker. He talks of the emotional power of a ‘Dream’ and how to endure the pain of the ‘Struggle’, and then learn what it feels like to taste ‘Victory’ when you challenge the limits which you place upon yourself.

Andy says “It is so important to set your goals high and remain focused on them – to move consistently forward with Purpose, Passion and Persistence to what you want to achieve, no matter what you face or how painful it may be along the way!” This is what Andy calls his ‘Churchill Determination’ factor - being persistent in striving for what you want to achieve.

Audiences will understand that we don’t go through challenges, but we grow through challenges.

When he speaks. Andy McMenemy helps to demystify the process of ‘Visualisation’ and shows how ‘Goal setting to success’ makes the difference. His mission is “To be a valued source of inspiration to people striving for success in times of change”. His philosophy is ”Success is optional, change is mandatory, but it doesn’t have to be difficult!”

Testimonials

Andy was excellent. He followed the brief, delivered what we wanted (and more) and we'd definitely recommend him to others – in fact, we already have. We hope to follow his future challenges and maybe involve some of our own students.
