WATCH a five-minute video of a recent talk I gave at 'Ignite Liverpool'

I am excited to offer my services as a speaker at corporate events, workshops and schools, both in the UK and internationally.


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 five days in Uzbekistan, caught in a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, 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.


Specialising in leading international teams through hostile places, I also share my insights on how to effectively manage teams towards a goal during high-pressure situations, referencing my experiences from the world's most challenging environments.


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.
