Miriam Staley

“Global Angels is not only led by an inspirational woman, it is focused on generating inspirational results in the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. That inspires me!”


IMG_0312Miriam Staley is the founder and MD of We Make Waves, a company which lives and breathes the impact that well-crafted and superbly delivered messages can have. Focused on helping senior management to identify, nurture and get results from their people, they work with executive teams to create a clear ‘thought’ agenda and then source talented experts from an extensive resource pool to deliver tailor-made solutions to maximise performance. MakeWaves supports clients with their communications strategies, learning and development programmes and executive development, as well as placing the highest quality speakers into conferences and events.

Miriam is a public speaker and presenter herself who first came into the public’s consciousness when she appeared as a contestant on the original series of the BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’. Notably receiving the show’s only apology from Sir Alan Sugar after firing her, she went on to develop her varied business career, taking on a high-level marketing role with Lloyds TSB, before leaving to have her two delicious children and pursue her entrepreneurial interests.

Miriam was one of the hosts at the Global Angel Awards 2013 at the Roundhouse for the fundraising section of the night. Here are some photos.
