Billy Schwer, former IBO light welterweight world champion, spent two decades at the top of the most physically and mentally gruelling sport. He now works as a personal mentor, executive coach and motivational speaker.
One of the most consistently brilliant fighters ever seen in Britain, for his sharp skills, courage and determination, Billy’s effort and grace in the ring attracted a huge fan base. His engaging personality and ready wit made him a favourite amongst other boxers, promoters and the media.
An engaging speaker: honest, reflective and intelligent has led to him being sought out by various journalists to contribute to radio discussions, feature articles and opinion pieces on a breadth of subjects. Naturally, being an icon in the sport of boxing, Billy has been invited to do a share of pundit work.
Actively involved in many Charities since 1991 Billy finds a great deal of fulfilment in positively contributing to the community and peoples lives. He is currently working towards establishing a foundation to help underprivileged teenagers and children realise their potential and dreams.

“Billy attended one of our quarterly off-site sales meetings and proved to be an inspiration to the whole team.
His open and frank manner coupled with an enthusiastic style of presentation hit exactly the right note.
It is refreshing to see a business coach talk about the low times as well as the highs. I recommend him highly.”
Parm Flora, Managing Director, Aquila Consulting Group
I'm just e-mailing to say thank you to you, Mickey and Russ for an excellent evening last night. Being on the head table last night was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, it will be a moment in my life I will never forget. Your story was really inspirational to me and it just goes to show with perseverance, determination and dedication what you can achieve. Your story has taught me one thing - visualise what you want, then go out there and get it (as you did). I also want to take the time to say thank you for posing for countless pictures and for your opinions on boxing, again something I will never forget. You, Mickey and Russ all came across as down to earth guys, real gentlemen and had time for everyone, nothing was too much for you, that to me makes you champions out of the ring as well as in the ring. I wish you well for the future and hope your motivational speaking is a huge success.

I was in the afternoon session at First Colonial Investments a week or so ago and I would like to thank you for sparking off a series of events which now have me on course to fulfill my true desires. I'm sure George didn't have staff leaving the company in his plans when he arranged the group discussions, but ever since your session I have thought long and hard about what I truly wanted and am now dedicated to achieving my goals.

We have been working with Billy over a number of months on a few projects which have been well received by both our team and members. Our teams were inspired and motivated by Billy’s story. He communicated with them in a way they could relate to in their own lives and made them think about success and what they could do different at home and work.
Billy has also been working with us and our corporate members, focusing on how his messages can be translated into the work place and again they have found his presentations relevant and motivational.
Our regular club members have additionally been working with Billy on how they can maintain their workout regimes and keep focused on using the club.
During all these projects Billy has been seen as approachable, personable and with a great message. He has always had time to chat about his career, have photos taken and be available for people.
We have enjoyed working with Billy and look forward to doing so in the future.
Jarrod Lupson, General Manager, Next Generation, Clubs
“It was a great pleasure to have Billy work with the students on the BSc in Business Enterprise – not only was he an inspiration to the young entrepreneurs, but he showed how to translate his academic model into practical solutions for them all to integrate into their future business dealings. Since he spent the morning with them the buzz has continued and motivation is running super high. We hope to have him return on a more regular basis in the near future.”
