THE ORIGINS OF AN ADVENTURER
In everything he does, Dean draws on a colourful and dramatic personal journey. A former soldier in the Special Boat Service (SBS), his military career was ended by a parachuting accident in 2011.

He has since become a record-breaking explorer and adventurer, while establishing a successful career as a motivational speaker.

Anticipation Is worse than participation. So jump in.
Born into a military family, Dean moved around a lot as a child – even spending time in a homeless shelter following his parents’ break-up. Like many young boys, he wanted to be a fireman when he grew up, but it was a chance comment from his father that changed his mind. “The army? You wouldn’t last two minutes!” Those seven words spurred Dean on to become a commando, then an instructor on the commando course and ultimately, a member of the Special Forces. His dad may have been joking when he said he wouldn’t last, but Dean didn’t leave until injury ended his military career in 2011 – 16 years after he joined up.
THE UNRELENTING PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE™️
Dean was one of the first army soldiers to make it through the gruelling, six-month Special Forces selection process to join the Special Boat Service (SBS). The next stage of his military career took him to some of the world’s toughest and most unwelcoming places – hostile environments in which his life and the lives of others were constantly under threat. This real-world experience, in tandem with his elite Special Forces training, is what enables Dean to do things that terrify normal people. Today, he continues to live by the Special Forces ethos: The Unrelenting Pursuit of Excellence.
THE ADVENTURE GOES ON
Since leaving the SBS, Dean has learned what it means to start again. Passionate in his belief that anyone can improve their ability to adapt to new challenges, he represents an incredibly versatile partner for brands, businesses and charities – especially in today’s fragmented media landscape. So in many regards, it’s not what Dean has done that’s exciting. It’s what he’s going to do next.
