There are many motivational speakers who have inspirational stories to tell of how they overcame the most difficult circumstances to go on to do great things and Captain Robert Lawrence has one of the most amazing presentations that you are ever likely to hear.

Private audiences or delegates at business conferences and events have been enthralled by Robert’s incredibly detailed revelations of how he was shot in the head on the last day of the Falklands war in 1982. Fighting off death as he lay unattended for six hours, Capt Lawrence was eventually taken to a nearby operating theatre and this was the beginning of his astounding journey to recovery.

To look at motivational speaker Robert now, you would have no idea of the trauma that he went through on the Falkland Islands’ freezing Mount Tumbledown. After two years in a wheelchair, the only tell-tale signs are his paralysed arm and his limp but these do not tell anything like the full story of what the captain went through.

Awarded the Military Cross for his bravery, Captain Robert Lawrence also became the subject of a BBC film called Tumbledown that was watched by around 10m people. The programme – in which Robert was played by the leading British film star Colin Firth – also detailed how Robert had previously served in Belfast, Northern Ireland, with the Scots Guards and worked in Brunei on the island of Borneo and in Africa as a jungle warfare instructor.

Today, Lawrence runs Global Adventure Plus which supports recovering members of the armed forces through overseas expeditions. Alongside the UK princes William and Harry, the Captain has helped soldiers via trips to Africa, India and the Arctic.
