About Former Dragon’s Den Star Hilary Devey CBE who will once again be speaking at the Introbiz Expo 2016.
Hilary Devey CBE
Bolton-born Hilary Devey CBE is an entrepreneur, TV presenter, commentator,
and award-winning businesswoman who, when she launched Pall-Ex in 1996, not only created a business network that now commands revenues of £100 million, but also revolutionised the palletised distribution industry in the UK.
Hilary has become a familiar face on British television, known for her pivotal, community and entrepreneurship-supporting roles in reality shows including Dragons’ Den, The Intern, The Secret Millionaire and The Business Inspector.
Hilary has been the recipient of a number of leading industry awards, including the 2007 Ernst & Young UK Entrepreneur Award and the NatWest Everywoman award in 2008, as well as being voted the Vitalise Businesswoman of the Year twice (in 2004 and 2008). In 2009, Hilary made history as the first ever woman to be presented with the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport’s most prestigious accolade, the Sir Robert Lawrence Award.
In 2010, Hilary Devey was made an honorary Doctor of Laws at the University of Leicester. Hilary has honorary Doctorates in Business Administration from the Universities of Bolton and Wolverhampton and was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2013, for her contribution to the Transport Industry and to Charity.
Hilary is sought as an inspiring motivational speaker by major corporate firms and networking organisations, recently addressing conferences and events staged by Credit Suisse, T-Mobile, and The Entrepreneurs’ Forum.
Hilary also campaigns tirelessly for various charities including The Carers Trust, of which she is vice president and the Stroke Association of which she is a patron. When setting up Pall-Ex Hilary launched the Penny-A-Pallet scheme, which sees a contribution made for every Pall-Ex pallet processed and has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for a raft of charities.
Hilary’s autobiography Hilary Devey Bold as Brass: My Story was published by Macmillan in May 2012.
