World record breaking is in Don Wales' blood. He is the grandson of Sir Malcolm Campbell MBE and the nephew of Donald Campbell CBE, who between them broke more than 20 World Land and Water Speed Records. Don himself holds a World Land Speed Record, two American National Records, a Guinness World record for the fastest lawn mower and has broken 8 UK Land Speed Records with Bluebird Electric. It is Don's ambition to break another World Land Speed Record and for 2015 he wants to be the first to exceed 400mph – in an electric car!
Don is an accomplished after-dinner speaker, who talks with passion and humour. He mixes insights into his fascinating family history with recollections of his own record-breaking achievements. Don has the full attention of his audiences as he recounts enduring extreme temperatures to set a world speed record in the desert and removing unexploded mines from a beach in Wales prior to breaking UK speed records.
Campbell family historical photographs and record-breaking memorabilia rarely seen in public can complement Don’s talks.
Don Wales is available for after-dinner speeches, talks to groups of any size, motivational and business development seminars and as guest of honour at presentations, publicity events and private functions.
