Bank of Dave, Business Speaker

Dave Fishwick is an entrepreneurial speaker, and owner of one for the leading minibus firms in the UK, but often best known to many for his Channel 4 Show “Bank of Dave.”

Having left School without any qualifications, Dave’s story is one of hard work, dedication and the will to succeed that makes him one the UK’s most in-demand speakers.

Having initially started as an apprentice builder, Dave started to buy and sell cars and began to make a profit. This grew and grew, and now David Fishwick Van and Minibus Sales is now the largest minibus supplier in Britain, offering affordable minibuses for schools, sports teams, community groups, and local authorities. The business now has a multi-million-pound turnover, but not one to rest on his laurels, Dave decided that he wanted a new challenge and that was to take on the banks

Dave set out to create his own bank, and his story was followed on the Channel 4 hit show “Bank of Dave.” The bank was started with his own money and promised to give all profits to charity. Offering loans to businesses who otherwise struggled to get finance, and offering hands-on advice, Dave set out to send it into profit with 180 days.

Hailed by many as the ‘People’s Banker’ Dave received letters pleading for him to open more ‘banks’ and in Dave’s 2013 follow up ‘Fighting The Fat Cats’ politicians from all sides were quick to jump on Dave’s banking bus to show their support. Still going strong today, Burnley Savings & Loans is applying to become a UK regulated bank.

Further shows on Channel 4 included “David Fishwick: Loan Ranger,” “Can Property Pay Your Wages?” and “The Shoppers Guide to Saving Money” and his book “Bank of Dave” has appeared in the Sunday Times Business bestseller list.

• Finding the Entrepreneurial Spirit
