In Detail

Duncan's business career began with an ice cream van bought for £450; he soon expanded by buying more vans and eventually sold the business for £28,000, founding a care home business instead. Quality Care Homes was sold for £26 million in 1996 and another business, children's nursery chain Just Learning, for £22 million. Duncan has since branched into Health Clubs, with the popular Bannatyne's Health Clubs chain, and also bars, hotels and property. In October 2008, in defiance of the credit crunch, Duncan opened the £12,000,000 Bannatyne Spa Hotel in Hastings and also revamped the spa chain. Duncan was honoured with the Order of the British Empire for his contribution to charity and he supports many good causes, especially for children. He is heavily involved with Comic Relief and UNICEF.


Drawing from his own business experiences Duncan offers audiences a wealth of useful advice and business know how based on his own life story. His presentations are filled with the secrets of his success and he offers an unparalleled insight into the business acumen which has made him one of Britain's wealthiest business men.
