Public Speaking & Charity
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to speak at a wide variety of events. I’ve shared my expertise and experiences with audiences across the UK, inspiring young entrepreneurs and delivering speeches and presentations.
I was awarded Youth Employment UK Ambassador of the Year in 2019 and have spoken at more than 20 events with the largest audience totalling 1500 spectators. Since 2019, I have also been featured on BBC News,
BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Sheffield, Capital FM, ABC Australia and in The Sun newspaper.
Topics I can speak on with great passion include bullying, wellbeing, mental health, enterprise, marketing, and brand development. For me, these subjects have always been interconnected and having confidence as a person feeds into success in the workplace.
In addition, I have always been keenly involved in charity work, and while Harvey Morton Digital continues to grow, so does my investment in all things charitable! Charity work has always been close to my heart. When I was at school, I was told that I would never be able to get through a school enterprise competition I had entered. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to have many wonderful people cheering me on from the side-lines.
As a result, I’ve taken it upon myself to be a cheerleader for others who need the support. I invest ten hours of every month to projects hosted by The Princes Trust, Youth Employment UK and The Diana Award.

“Harvey is a hardworking, reliable and inspiring person to work with. He is committed to seeing young people reach their potential and will give a lot of himself to make sure they are supported in this. He is experienced in many areas and he brings this unique experience with him. He is a living, breathing testament to the idea that 'anything is possible' and I know that young people will gain a lot from spending time with him and hearing his story so far. It was a pleasure to have him work with us at The Diana Award and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

“Harvey delivered an inspiring session to our MSc Entrepreneurship students on the practicalities of developing networks as an Entrepreneur. Harvey's personable approach and honest account of his journey so far created a strong connection with our students. Following his presentation all students were able to see the opportunities of developing their own networks for entrepreneurial success. Participants commented on his ability to provide such detailed content in a way they could relate to. We loved having Harvey in this session and can't wait to have him back again for the next cohort.”
- Alexandra Anderson, International Business and MSc Entrepreneurship Lecturer, Sheffield Hallam University
“Harvey has taken on the role as one of our most committed Alumni since leaving school. He is extremely giving of his time to support current students in their business and enterprise ventures. He has supported many events at Meadowhead such as career talks to Y7-Y11 students, hosting our Alumni stall at open evenings and our annual Progress day, and leading enterprise workshops for Big Challenge competition teams for the Venture Matrix outreach team at Hallam University. Workshop topics included: how to set up a successful business, designing a logo and branding, and writing business reports. He has also helped students prepare presentations to judges in the Big Challenge competition. He is always willing to share his business knowledge and expertise and is a true inspiration to our current students."
