General Sir Mike Jackson CBE

Highest Profile General since WWII

Mike Jackson Main

It’s one thing being outspoken and controversial but it is something else entirely when you have the weight and gravitas of General Sir Mike Jackson GCB CBE. People not only listen to this motivational speaker but they are always entertained and delighted by what he has to share.

A former Chief of General Staff and Head of the British Army, Jackson has headed up troops in such high-profile conflict hotspots as Kosovo, Bosnia and Iraq.

A vociferous critic of US military strategies – he is said to have told one American commander “I’m not going to start the Third World War for you [by shooting Russian soldiers]” – the general has held positions in the Intelligence Corps and the Parachute Regiment. He commanded the latter for two years, including the controversial period in Northern Ireland that became known around the world as Bloody Sunday.

Other bodies this motivational speaker has operated in include Nato’s ACE Rapid Reaction Corps and the Ministry of Defence.

You certainly know what you are getting when you book Jackson – a man who speaks his mind and has very strongly held views that many who have served under him believe are fair. He is also someone who knows better than most exactly what is required to motivate and inspire people and enable them to achieve as close as possible to their full potential.
