Dee Bleakley

Communications Trainer

DEE BLEAKLEY was born and bred in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A former table tennis national champion back in Belfast and a sport enthusiast generally, Dee believes the hard work and dedication required to be successful in high-level sport, have huge parallels in life and he uses his level of high experience in sports to promote mental toughness and the determination it takes to be successful. 

By age 21 with a degree in Environmental Science and also Education, ‘Mr.Bleakley’ became a Geography teacher. Working with young people is something he is extremely passionate about: helping to make the most of school, discussing their goals, aspirations and ultimately how to go about making them happen.

He decided to make the move to full-time speaking, travelling all over the UK working with schools, businesses and corporate clients with one of the UK’s leading motivational training companies. Dee picked up two ‘Speaker of Year’ awards in his only two full calendar years at the company.

And Outside Work?

Dee continues to play and watch almost every sport under the sun, and makes the occasional trip to Old Trafford to watch his beloved Man Utd. Make sure you ask him about his family’s biennial predictions tournament – and pick his brain for his Fantasy Football tips.
