Tim Campbell came to public attention by winning the reality show, The Apprentice. He was catapulted into a world very different from his previous job at London Underground, but unlike others who attempted to make the most of their fifteen minutes of fame, Tim stayed with Alan Sugar for nearly three years. He ran Amstrad's foray into the health and beauty market.
Then after commissioning a study amongst unemployed 16 to 29 year olds, Tim decided to form the Bright Ideas Trust. The research revealed that thousands of young people want to start their own business but lack the advice, encouragement, and investment needed to get started. They think that business is done by 'somebody else.' This became his mission.
In presentations Tim confronts the negative mentality head on, arguing that opportunities will always exist for those with confidence, good planning, perseverance and the ability to build relationships. He believes that everyone should have the mindset of an entrepreneur.

EXTRACT FROM JLA SPEAKERS BREAKFAST
My first mentor was the only teacher who spoke to me as an adult, who gave me guidance and advice - he taught me that I had power, that teachers have to listen to you when you put up your hand. It was incredibly empowering to learn that I could get people to do my bidding.
In the world of work I discovered I had to play the game in order to get what I wanted. I realised that the rules of engagement are not just about hard work - it's about networking and becoming a problem-solver. I soon learned I had to become a valuable resource.
The greatest thing I took from The Apprentice was confidence. When you believe you are the best, in an environment where everyone else thinks the same, it is very empowering to come out on top. On a level playing field it doesn't matter what your background is - what matters is how determined you are to succeed. And I was extremely hungry.
