Ben is a truly astonishing individual, and his story is one of great courage and determination. He survived stepping on a Taliban landmine in 2008 and sustained injuries so serious his chances of survival were slim. However not only did Ben survive but he has subsequently accomplished some amazing and remarkable physical achievements including running the London Marathon twice, climbing the UK’s 3 Peaks and Trekking to Mount Everest’s base camp. Even though he only has his right arm and left leg. Furthermore, his obstacles have not only been physical ones. He has had to battle huge mental hurdles too which he has somehow managed to overcome. Massively motivating his inspirational speeches are about endurance, adventure, the importance of living life to the full. They are also about living with a disability, being positive and enjoying being alive. He is a very fine speaker. Now a dad of two young boys whom he has been a stay-at-home dad for when he is not speaking or filming for TV, his speeches receive glowing testimonials, and he genuinely receives standing ovations every time.
