Resilience | Open Water Swimming | Disability Awareness

I've Alpine skied, tandem parachuted, cycled across America, completed a half ironman, swum Lake Windermere and become an influencer in the growing open water winter swimming scene. I've spoken to audiences across Europe with some of the biggest brands, including Tedx, Facebook, The Royal Ballet School, Northampton Saints Rugby Club to name but a few.


All of this, despite experiencing life-changing injuries as a result of an operational incident that cut short that successful military career. I haven’t just survived, but I’ve thrived, continuing to support my family and living my life as a ‘thank you’ to those who were there for me when the time came for me to need them.

I refuse to be defined by my injures. Working as a freelancer and as a consultant, I lead an active lifestyle, and have found new ways of enjoying the things I did pre-injury. These experiences have given me the unique gift of absolute adaptability, that is a desired quality in a world of uncertainty and chaos.

 

SPEAKING

As a public speaker, I have spoken to groups, business, organisations, on behalf of various charities and to students across the UK and Europe. I am an average bloke who survived a life-changing injury. We will all endure challenging times in our lives; I believe in sharing what I learned and how I adapted to this situation can help others thrive and survive.

MOTIVATIONAL TALKS

Private Sector, Corporations and Businesses

I've had the privilege of working with some incredible corporations and businesses since I started in 2014. After sharing my story with organisations large and small across the UK and Europe, I've had to some great feedback both publicly and personally. 

We all go through tough moments in our lives, allow me to help you and your company lay the foundations to weather these uncomfortable moments.  

EDUCATIONAL TALKS

Youth Organisations, Schools, Colleges, Universities, Not For Profit Clubs & Organisations.

Talking to students of all ages and backgrounds has been particularly rewarding for me as a speaker. Teaching our children and young adults about the coping mechanisms and strategies I have employed, I believe is an important part of developing resilience. 

I have been invited to speak at prestigious private schools and more challenging inner city schools. I have found that there are similar worries and issues with all our students.
