Robin Horsfall has led an amazing life. A broken family life adversely affected his education, so he left school in 1972 at the age of fifteen and joined the army as a boy soldier. Despite a long period of isolation and bullying by his peers, he became a full member of the Parachute Regiment in and served three tours of Northern Ireland and was a member of the SAS counter terrorist team that assaulted the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980, helping to rescue the nineteen hostages who had been held for six days.

Robin draws upon his unique experiences to captivate his audience, speaking on subjects such as overcoming adversity, bullying and PTSD. He shares details on the SAS selection process, SAS operations Banner, Nimrod and Mikado in the 1980’s and aims to inspire people to change their direction and take control of their lives.

In the early 90’s, Robin started to teach martial arts and for twenty years taught thousands of children karate in South West London building the largest independent children’s karate group in Europe. He broke his neck and while recovering went to Surrey University as a mature student (56) and graduated three years later.

During his speeches, attendees will discover fascinating stories from his extensive military career and how they relate to his underlying theme of overcoming adversity.
