Louise Burfitt-Dons

Louise Burfitt-Dons is an advocate, writer, playwright, author, encourager, mother, futurist, environmental broadcaster, inspirational and motivational speaker. She is one of the country’s most formidable campaigners on anti-bullying issues, having founded the children’s charity Act Against Bullying fifteen years ago. In her presentations, Louise blends timely and provocative knowledge with humour and motivation.


About Louise Burfitt-Dons

Louise Burfitt-Dons is also a social commentator, humanitarian, keynote speaker and political activist.  Furthermore, she has established a reputation for speaking out on a range of humanitarian issues. Louise is the epitome of both multi-faceted and multi-talented. She is masterly at tailoring presentations to audiences as she addresses relevant trends and offers powerful, practical guidance for self-motivation and fulfilment.


Louise Burfitt-Dons has promoted the values of opportunity and compassion to counter anti-social behaviour and engender aspiration, both as a motivational speaker and as a candidate for the Conservative Party in the UK in the General Election of 2015 for Nottingham North, one of the country’s most deprived areas.

Louise has appeared on Sky News, Good Morning America, Channel Four News, ITV News London, ITN, BBC Breakfast and Talk Radio Europe, BBC Surrey and BBC Sussex, BBC Oxford, LBC, The World Tonight. She has written on social affairs and political issues for a range of newspapers and blogs including Conservative Home. She has regularly reviewed news on the Ian Collins show Roundtable on LBC Radio.

She believes that some feminist groups have hijacked and radicalised the equality movement and has catalysed a debate around conservative feminism calling on more gender realism via her blog The Right-Wing Feminist.

Developed out of necessity to encourage young victims of bullying, Louise’s unique style of motivation through theatrically inspired campaigns combined with a motherly concern for children is helping a range of inhibited people to find their feet.

Louise Burfitt-Dons is an easily identifiable motivator. Drawing on her life experiences as a mother and wife, as well as her expertise as a charity campaigner, writer, and anti-bullying expert, she is a down-to-earth speaker to whom all age groups can relate.

She speaks inspirationally about opportunities for fulfilment, how age is no barrier, why reinvention is a natural female gift and how women’s mufti-focused personalities are underused.

Louise’s sense of humour combined with a grounded view of the world today and its changing social dynamics are thought provoking. Having researched girl groups for anti-bullying purposes, her talks include exposing empowerment myths that just don’t work for women and positive pep talks that do. In this way, she approaches the subject of motivation with integrity and grit.

Drawing on the link between her research into female behaviour and ‘beauty power’, Louise can improve any aspect of your life or business. In a world where over half the population is female, a large proportion of workforce is made up of women, and consumer markets are dependent on the spend trend, her insight is invaluable.

Tailored to a wide range of subjects, Louise can present a relevant address for any conference, after dinner occasion or boardroom bash.
