“Get active and help free your mind.” – Speaker Dean Stott

Dean Stott is a former British Special Forces Soldier, surviving through the Special Forces grueling 6-month selection process, Dean became one of the very first army members to join the SBS (Special Boat Service). Throughout his vast military career, he has conducted deployments to hostile overseas environments and been involved in Counter-Terrorism operations; he has traveled to some of the toughest places in the world. Dean left the military after 16 honorable years, having suffered a severe knee injury in a parachuting accident in 2011.

Speaker Dean Stott then established a distinguished career in the private security sector: he was renowned for his willingness to take on any job, no matter how dangerous. The man who went when others wouldn’t. Ash has faced extortion, kidnapping, civil war, pirates, military coups, and single-handedly responsible for the evacuation of the Canadian Embassy rescuing four diplomats and 18 military personnel from Libya to Tunis in 2014.

However, in 2016 Dean was ready for a new project and wanted to help others. Ash began training to cycle the longest motorable road in the world – The Pan American Highway. Dean passed through 14 countries on his expedition, crossing some of the most dangerous passages throughout the world. Before his training, Dean had never cycled more than a few miles. In his final stretch, Dean continued for 17 hours and driven by his determination to cover over (340 miles) on his longest day. Dean completed the 14,000-mile route from Argentina to Alaska in May 2018, gaining two world records and raising an outstanding amount of money for charity in the process.

Dean continuously lives by the Special Forces’ ethos of ‘the unrelenting pursuit of excellence.’ The determination required throughout his career has become an integral part of Dean’s character and overall being.

Dean is now a renowned international speaker, presenting to blue-chip corporates, sporting bodies, military units, universities, and schools. Dean has presented to audiences all over the globe with audiences up to 10’000.

    I had the pleasure of hearing Dean speak about his PAH challenge in a packed room full of recreational cyclists. In his professional presentation, Dean captivated the whole audience with his passionate account of succeeding against the odds, recounting a heady mix of the trials and tribulations he faced down before and during his grueling 99 day challenge. I looking forward to the next installment in the life of this phenomenal adventurer!

    Listening to Dean makes you realize the potential within us all. His story is extraordinary - and he tells it brilliantly. But he’s also a record-breaker, athlete and warrior with a sense of humour. And a humility that sends you away wondering just what you could achieve too. I wish I could have a talk from Dean every day when I wake up.

    The Relentless Pursuit of Excellence is a strapline that resonated for obvious reasons and whatever field you happen to be in, that should be the goal for any business. Dean has a fascinating and entertaining story that has some very simple and clear messages about how to plan and execute an objective and exceed one’s expectations. I’d recommend anyone to listen to his story and am sure it will entertain and inform everyone, irrespective of gender, ethnicity and disability.
