Billy Schwer, Former Champion Boxer and Motivational Speaker, Inspires the Team at Pictons
The staff at leading regional and award winning law firm Pictons got together from the company’s three offices in Herts, Beds and Bucks at its Luton HQ for the annual team get together. This year the AGM had an added ‘punch’ with a presentation from the former British, Commonwealth, European and IBO World Boxing Champion Billy Schwer, who is now a renowned professional Inspirational & Motivational Speaker and Personal Performance Coach.
Billy was at the top of his field for 20 years and was one of Britain’s most successful fighters. Since retiring from the ring, Billy has become an engaging professional speaker and has also been actively involved in many charities since 1991. He set up the Billy Schwer Foundation to deliver speaking sessions and “The Mental Boxing” workshop in Schools, Youth Offending Institutes and organisations including Turning Point, the Prince’s Trust, Compass and other charities that support young people.
Sukh Saini, Managing Partner of Pictons says “This year we wanted to do something different for our team meeting and having seen Billy in action at business networking events I thought his presentation would be both inspiring and a bit of a treat for everyone.
“He has achieved phenomenal success, not without setbacks, and he was able to deliver a very inspiring and engaging presentation that got everyone excited and talking about it afterwards. He stayed on to meet the team who were delighted to meet such a big local star. We’re lucky to have such a great team of partners, lawyers and support staff at Pictons and I’m sure everyone got an added motivational boost from Billy’s rousing and thought provoking presentation”
Billy says “Boxing is a great metaphor for life and business. It’s a fight, it’s a battle, it’s a challenge and having Pictons in your corner will have you come out on top.”
