Dean Stott      

Former Special Forces Operator, World Record Holder, Expedition Leader & Mental Health Advocate

Dean left the military after suffering a severe knee injury in a parachuting accident in 2011, after 16 honourable years of service. Throughout his esteemed military career Dean conducted deployments to overseas hostile environments and was involved in Counter Terrorism operations; he travelled to some of the toughest places in the world. Dean continues to live by the Special Forces’ ethos of the ‘unrelenting pursuit of excellence’ and the determination required throughout his career has become an integral part of Dean’s character.

Dean went on to establish a distinguished career in the private security sector but in 2016, he was ready for a new project. Though he had never cycled more than a few miles before, Dean decided to cycle the longest motorable road in the world - The Pan American Highway - in support of the Heads Together mental health campaign. Dean completed the 14,000 mile route in May 2018, after just 18 months of training. He smashed two world records in the process and has raised an incredible amount of money to support the campaign’s charity partners.

Aside from his mind-blowing charity expeditions, Dean now draws from his wealth of experiences to provide inspirational and motivational speeches at corporate engagements and private events.
