In 1982 the Sir Galahad was destroyed in Bluff Cove on the Falkland Islands. On board was Simon Weston, Welsh Guardsman, a name and face that was going to become well known for his struggle to overcome his injuries (46% burns) and redefine his role in life. Simon’s message is one of achievement, of triumph over adversity, of seizing the moment and succeeding.
Simon is one of the most highly regarded keynote speakers on the circuit today, he is a professional motivator with nearly thirty years’ experience. He is a veteran of the Falklands War. With irrepressible humour he speaks about overcoming adversity and positive mental attitude, as well as his experiences of being in the public eye for the last three decades. His humour, infectious enthusiasm and engaging personality have made him a firm favourite with many companies who invite him back to speak again and again.
He has become well-known across the United Kingdom and abroad for his struggle to overcome his injuries and redefine his role in life, and his message is one of achievement, of triumph in the face of adversity, and of seizing the moment and succeeding.
