Individual people – Boo

Duncan Holmes (Boo)

Before donning his tights and smoking jacket Boo worked as a Sales Manager in the travel and advertising industries. At the tender age of 30 he went to the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). After graduating in 1997 he worked in theatre and on many well known TV dramas including Casualty, Prime Suspect, Holby City, The Bill, Emmerdale and EastEnders. Realising that the business world could really benefit from the skills he had picked up, he co-created Speak The Speech with Jon Bacon in 1998. He now travels the world passing on his skills, experience and expertise to a wide range of people from leading politicians to CEO’s to professional athletes and newly joined graduates. His love of life, positivity and humour mean that he is a person you will never forget meeting.
