Willie Harcourt-Cooze provides a vivid insight into the energy and imagination involved in building an innovative business from the ground up.

He is a uniquely charming character, a great cook and raconteur. Charismatic, engaging and extraordinarily energetic, he is full of compelling anecdotes about his life and work.  It takes a serious amount of endurance to succeed in an industry that doesn’t always play by the rules and he’s become an expert at finding inventive solutions to problems when all other avenues have been exhausted.

Willie’s passion is utterly infectious and his story-telling reminiscent of the Victorian explorer raconteur.  A hugely likable, fascinating character with a wealth of knowledge at his fingertips, he’s a human whirlwind wherever he goes, from the wilds of Venezuela to the gentle rolling hills of Devon via the teeming metropolis of London or Caracas.

Willie presents in English and Spanish and is charismatic, energetic, inspirational, and motivational.
