Michelle Dewberry


Winner of the Apprentice and Entrepreneur

Michelle Dewberry is a businesswoman and broadcaster and keynote speaker who came to the public attention when she won the second series of the Apprentice on BBC2.

Michelle Dewberry overcame significant adversity during her childhood and early adult years, growing up in Hull.

Leaving school at 16, she started her career as a YTS in St John Ambulance before moving into one of Hull’s biggest employers – KCOM and starting at the bottom (juggling this with part time work on the checkout at Kwik-Save!).  She excelled in the technology industry and has subsequently consulted at a number of FTSE companies, alongside advising SMEs and working as a Non-Executive Director.

She made her mark in the media by winning series 2 of BBC’s The Apprentice, beating off competition from 14,000 people, to land a top job with Lord Alan Sugar.

Michelle is passionate about current affairs, and for many years she has debated these on national TV across all major news channels and programmes including Newsnight, Question Time, Politics Live, Broadcasting House and more. Michelle was a presenter of The Pledge, Sky News’ popular weekly debate show, before joining GB News in 2021 presenting Dewbs & Co.

As a proud Northerner, Michelle feels strongly about dissolving the North/South divide and the need for the working classes to be properly heard and their interests represented amongst the ‘Westminster Bubble’. She truly believes UK politics is broken and ran as an independent political candidate in the 2017 General Election for her hometown, Hull West and Hessle in an attempt to bring about change. She ran also as a Brexit candidate in the 2019 election to give the Brexiteers in her home town a viable option to vote for.

Having been affected by a number of challenges in her personal life, Michelle is now an ambassador for Women’s Aid and The Prince’s Trust. She is passionate about helping others and also works as a transformational Coach, helping people to excel.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
