Chris Moon exists to help people do what they do better, drawing on his unique experiences to illustrate principles people can use in their daily lives. He’s one of the most fortunate people to be alive you’re likely to meet and should be dead many times over.

Chris is a former British Officer who left the Army to work for a charity clearing landmines and unexploded ordnance. He’s one of the few Westerners to survive being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge (one of the most ruthless terror groups in history). He negotiated his own release and that of two colleagues. Two years later, when working in a remote part of Mozambique, he was blown up walking in a supposedly cleared area losing his lower right arm and leg. To survive he treated himself in the minefield. His doctors said they’d never seen anyone survive with such a small amount of blood. 

Less than a year after leaving hospital, he successfully completed the London Marathon and became the world’s first amputee ultra-distance runner when he completed the gruelling Marathon Des Sables. Since then, he’s completed many of the toughest ultra-distance races in the world, including the Badwater 135 mile Death Valley run in the hottest place on earth.

When it comes to challenging the concept of limitation, adapting to change and overcoming adversity, Chris walks the talk. He has a proven track record of delivering high impact presentations, helping to change behaviours and improve performance.

As a motivational speaker, Chris delivers passion, humour and inspiration. He shares experience on the balance of life and death and the limit of human endurance, which strip away any pretence we have as human beings to allow us to use his principles to do what we do better. These have academic rigour behind them from his Masters in human behaviour and work with psychologists and psychiatrists. Chris Moon is a truly international British inspirational speaker who has worked with diverse cultures, businesses and governments around the globe.
