Speaker's Fee:

D £3 - £5,000

  • Elite Training, ex-Royal Marines Commando & TV Survival Specialist.
  • Inspirational Speaker with his ‘Feed The Rat – Live Your Dream’ keynote motivational talk.
  • Expert keynotes on leadership, teamwork, risk, planning, success, creating and realising your potential.

John Sullivan is a former highly trained Royal Marines Commando. He has operated in some of the world’s most challenging environments – jungle, desert and arctic. John’s passion in life is to explore with a sense of purpose. Working alone, this has taken him to some of the remotest corners of the world to research and set up factual programmes for the BBC and the National Geographic Channel. He has also led numerous life-changing conservation expeditions for young people to Namibia, Belize and Borneo.

Advisor to the BBC, Channel 5 and National Geographic Channel John has excelled in the realm of freelance consultancy. He has remarkable first-hand knowledge of many remote regions of the world. He develops unique networks of in-country contacts – often local tribes. John uses these to advise media groups and expedition leaders on how best to deal with the cultures and natural environments of the countries they plan to explore.

John is in great demand from the top TV Companies. His aptitude to inhospitable conditions in remote areas uniquely qualifies him for TV ‘groundwork’ and preparation. The BBC hired him to make all in-country arrangements for Last Man Standing and Extreme Dreams. For Channel 5, he executed a similar brief for the programme, Unbreakables. More recently, John prepared all the pre-shoot arrangements in Papua New Guinea for the National Geographic Channel’s documentary, Eating with Cannibals. John loves nothing more than to pass on his passion for the natural world and for the peoples of the most remote regions of the planet. As an extreme survivalist, he is always looking for that next adventure!

Speaking

John invites his audience to reflect on and evaluate their own professional and personal experiences. He helps us not to fear change or adversity, to learn that they are a part of life – that being a victim is a matter of choice. John brings to his talks a wonderful sense of humour and imaginative use of video. Invariably, he concludes his presentation with a stunning twist, taking his audience completely by surprise, bringing them to their feet with rousing laughter and applause.

John’s prime driver is his desire to “Feed the Rat” inside him. Call it his motivation, or his obsession, it’s the desire to do whatever challenging or some say “crazy” thing which is offered to him that makes him the consummate adventurer he is. John is an inspiring speaker talking openly and with great enthusiasm about his experiences around the world. His talks have motivated adults and young people alike to feed their own Rat, be that heading to a beach in this country or finding a rock face to climb on the other side of the world.

John’s talks graphically illustrate how a small group, battling against the toughest conditions, can achieve unbelievable results, both for themselves as individuals, as well as for the environment. John brings his amazing experiences to bear on everyday issues effecting normal people in the workplace:

  • Creative Thinking & Risk Taking – How a quick, agile mind can help us out of a challenging situation.
  • Self-Discipline & Preparation – How getting into the habit of carrying out small routine tasks helps avoid problems in the future.
  • Overcoming Adversity – There’s nothing like a period of sustained tropical isolation to appreciate how ‘stickability’ will always see you through.
  • Leadership & Fostering Morale – Learning to accommodate different character types with the group – making each one feel valued.
  • Embracing Change – Learning how change is not to be feared but welcomed – change can be a genuine life-enhancing experience.
  • Appreciation of the Environment and Natural Resources – Following his experiences with the tribes of Borneo and Papua New Guinea, John has gained a unique perspective on the urgent issues facing our planet. He has unbounded admiration for the way in which remote tribes cherish each and every element of their surroundings.
  • The Courage to Be Yourself – John has learned how it only takes a few steps along a path of your choosing to gain a winning mentality, unbeatable confidence and self-esteem.
