We are pleased to be able to announce that our Guest Speaker for this year’s Charity Dinner will be Martin Hewitt.
Formerly a commissioned officer in The Parachute Regiment, Martin worked on operations and training exercises in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America before being shot in Afghanistan in 2007 leaving his right arm completely paralysed.
Since leaving the army, Martin has made the record books several times as Captain of the Combined Services Disabled Ski Team. He has represented Great Britain in the Paralympic World Championships competing in Downhill Ski racing.
In 2011, Martin was part of a team that walked unsupported to the Geographical North Pole along with HRH Prince Harry and in 2012, he climbed Mt Manaslu 8163M, Mt McKinley and led a team on Mt Everest 8848M.
Martin is now a Managing Director of Fieri Leadership and Development. Fieri specialise in developing teams and leaders that operate under high pressure in often hazardous environments. Martin is currently developing multiple teams to establish several world firsts to complete the Adaptive Grand Slam, summiting the 7 highest peaks on the 7 continents and walk unsupported to the North and South Poles.
Martin is a regular presenter on overcoming adversity, leadership and team development, and we look forward to welcoming him to the HAC on 14 July.
