About Ollie Ollerton

A man with military-grade mental strength, Ollie Ollerton is taking the motivational speaking circuit by storm. His expertise is fuelled by a career in the military, where he came face to face with terrorists in Iraq.

Though Ollie’s experiences taught him the value of staying calm under pressure, it also left him with an alcohol addiction and depression, both of which he has since overcome with mindfulness.

Ollie now uses his speaking to share his story, offering audiences insight into the resilience and mental robustness needed to fight not just active gunfire, but your own mental battles too.

Ollie believes that persistence is the key to success, so uses his experience to inspire tenacious determination, as a motivational speaker.
