Nick Hewer



Following his stint as Lord Sugar’s right-hand man on “The Apprentice” where he quickly  became renown  for revealing exactly what he thought of the contestants on the business reality contest , Nick went on to become  the host of “Countdown”.

In the 80s, Nick’s PR firm was chosen to represent Amstrad and soon became  Alan Sugar’s business and charitable activities media man. For more than  20 years Nick played a huge  part in Amstrad’s management structure. He also built a long and impressive client list, including the Secretariat of HH The Aga Khan and the wife of the ruler of Dubai, the late Sheikh Maktoum and  a number of British and international companies.

After selling the business, Nick moved to his house in south west France; but his solid friendship with Alan saw him negotiate on his behalf with “The Apprentice” producers. Soon things were to turn and  Sugar persuaded Nick to take an on-screen role, promising to negotiate his fees. He  fought hard against it and  he will tell you that he was cajoled into it   - in a muscular sort of way.

Nick and his original opposite number Margaret Mountford became surprise stars of the hit show. Nick in particular took to television like a natural , obtaining a string of credits from “Have I Got News For You” and “Farm Fixer” to “Would I Lie to You?” and most recently, “Pilgrimage”.

Now a skilled after dinner speaker, Nick particularly loves hosting awards ceremonies, bringing his sardonic style along with a whistle-stop look at his varied and often surprising career in business and broadcasting. He can be flexible on content and of course tailor his material to your clients' needs.
