I am excited to offer my services as a speaker at schools, workshops and corporate events.

 

I offer a range of tailored talks and presentations, often using photography and video, but always anecdotes, humour and passion. My recent years have been all about setting ambitious personal challenges and finding motivation, often from deep within, to achieve my aims. I've been lost in a land-mined jungle, detained for four days in Uzbekistan, skirted by avalanches, on the brink of frost-bite, spied upon, interrogated, threatened, and worst of all, told that my objectives are unachievable. The notion of constant goal-setting, self-belief and finding inspiration are the key messages I deliver in all my talks. Through my experiences, I have built an array of relevant stories, from the hard-hitting to the downright bizarre, which I share to engage audiences with my primary belief; that with guts, drive and resilience, anything is possible.

'Oli France is the modern day adventurer!...Oli has taken the time to come and speak to the children in my school, where we have followed every step of his journey. He left children from one of the most deprived areas in the country feeling inspired, courageous and believing they could achieve anything they set their mind to. What a guy!'

'Oli planned his talk with great care and detail and ensured it was appropriate for the age of the children. His delivery was very clear and he answered all the questions honestly and with humour. All the children were engaged throughout and they took away many ideas and messages, especially perseverance and trying hard'
