Devey, the founder and CEO of pallet distribution network Pall-Ex, will appear on Channel Five for a new four-part television series called “The Business Inspector”. In each programme, the straight-talking self-made haulage millionaire will tackle two struggling British businesses – one man bands, kitchen table entrepreneurs and struggling firms – by injecting business sense into their projects. “Britain’s brimming with creativity, but a terrifying number of businesses go bust each year and this shouldn’t be happening,” explains Devey. “I hope to teach businesses how to improve their all-round business knowledge and direction, cash flow, marketing strategy and in some cases even their enthusiasm.” Sponsored by HMRC, the programme will show business owners what key skills are needed for a thriving business, helping Britain’s entrepreneurs to get their businesses back in the black. Having started from nothing, Devey set up Pall-Ex in 1996 and now leads a network of businesses that boast a combined turnover of over £100m. “Hilary Devey is like no other businesswoman out there. She’s an amazing combination of down-to-earth grit coupled with an extraordinary business mind – for any small business person working with her, this will be a life changing experience,” says Becky Clarke of Optomen, the programme’s editor. The series will air on March 10, March 17, March 24 and March 31 at 8pm on Five. We’ll definitely be watching you, Hilary!
