Entrepreneurial Speaker & Founder of Red Letter Days & Former Dragon From Dragons Den

Rachel Elnaugh is an entrepreneurial speaker and the Founder of the experience brand Red Letter Days and former Dragon on BBC2’s Dragons Den.

Rachel created Red Letter Days at a young age and on a small budget and at its peak was making over £1milion profit a year. By 2000 Red Letter Days was acknowledged as being the pioneer behind the UK Experience Market.

The success led to Rachel being invited to part of a new business show called Dragons Den, and she appeared in the first two series.
However the journey for Red Letter Days was not smooth sailing, and an over-expansion in 2002 led the business to the brink and went into Administration before being bought out by fellow Dragons Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis.

In her speeches, Rachel talks on the fine line between success and failure and the lessons learned from her entrepreneurial journey. The story is also published in the book ‘Business Nightmares‘ – which includes the stories of 20 other successful entrepreneurs who hit problems on their journey.

She also had second book PROSPERITY published in 2016.

Her most recent business venture is SourceTV – a business operating platform for thought leaders, holistic professionals, alternative therapists and coaches which she co-created with Hollywood based TV/Video and Digital Marketing Expert Kevin Stein.


Rachels main keynote is her ‘Entrepreneurial Rollercoaster’ theme, but she tailors her speech to cover subjects such as:

• Business Alchemy
• Marketing & Branding
• Business Nightmares
• “The Future is Feminine”
• Surviving Adversity

Rachel Elnaugh has been invited to speak at many enterprise events about her experiences and is now an accomplished professional speaker with experience of speaking at over three hundred events including Harvard University, TEDx, The Scottish Parliament, The Oxford Union Debating Society, The British Library, The National Library Singapore, the Opening of Global Entrepreneurship week in Holland (with Nick Clegg) and the Conservative Party Conference.

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.
