Speaker Information


Deirdre Bounds

Voted as one of the North's top 100 entrepreneurs, Deirdre started up a business from a bedsit and turned it into the world's biggest gap year company. She then sold it to a FTSE 100 company for an eight figure sum- and all in just 10 years!

Deirdre has no family history of enterprise, and set the whole thing up without any start-up capital. All she had was a great idea, a real belief in helping young people have amazing experiences, piles of passion and a belief that a travel business could be both ethical and profitable.

An ex-comedienne her style is informal and witty, as a business person her knowledge authentic and useful and as a best selling Author of a personal development book her messages are direct and inspirational.

Moving from banking into real estate and parking specifically, Emma founded Target Parking, her second car park company, in 2008.
Emma was recently selected by The Telegraph as their twice weekly business columnist in the newly launched Wonder Women section – an elite group of inspirational women are defined by their reactive, witty and honest style.
