Carl Hopkins: Motivational Speaker and more
I am many things to many people. To some I have been introduced as a “marketing ‘guru’”, which is very flattering. In 2012 I was voted by others as being the 35th most influential marketer outside of London. To many I am perhaps best known for my appearance on Channel Four’s The Secret Millionaire. Those closest to me know me as a marketer and agency owner with over 25 years’ experience.
In 2007 I sold my marketing agency JDA and, instead of ‘retiring’, set up kloog, a business development service to share some of the experiences garnered during my career. In addition to launching kloog, I turned my hand to serial entrepreneurship and as a marketing speaker, becoming involved with a variety of businesses that range from training people to return to the workplace to selling sporting supplements. I can also regularly be found taking to the podium as a public speaker, whether it is as a keynote speaker at high profile business events or inspiring young people into enterprise through motivational speaking.
