Mike Clare is the former Founder, Chairman and CEO of Dreams Plc.

In the early years, he did everything himself – selling beds during the day, delivering them in the evening and doing the book-keeping on Sundays. It’s a story many entrepreneurs including those in estate agency will relate to.

Over the next 21 years, Mike achieved what most of us fail to achieve – breaking through the barriers that prevent most businesses from achieving their full potential and growing it to become a national household name with over 200 superstores, employing 2,000 people and delivering 8,000 beds a week, with year-on-year profit growth.

It’s a success story that relies on more than just hard work – it requires great leadership in all aspects of business.
