How he presents

Monty has established a reputation as one of the most entertaining and through-provoking speakers in the UK. His presentations are a different experience from the standard leadership or team building presentation, something genuinely thought provoking, relevant, yet hugely entertaining.

In Detail

A former Royal Marines officer who worked for Nelson Mandela on the peace process in South Africa, he left the services in 1996 to pursue a career in leading expeditions. Having achieved a First Class Honours degree in marine biology over the next decade, he circumnavigated the globe four times on various projects, leading multi-national teams in some of the most demanding environments on earth. Monty's television career spans over 8 years and includes the BBC's Great Escape series where he lived on the west coast of Scotland, the Outer Hebrides and west coast of Ireland, as well as the BBC's Natural History Unit series Great Barrier Reef and most recently The Fisherman's Apprentice. Monty writes a weekly column for the Daily Mail and Outdoor Fitness magazine and is also a regular contributor for various specialist dive monthly's. In 2002 he was awarded the Bish Medal by the Scientific Exploration Society for his services to exploration.


Based on his experiences, the predominant themes are the adventures and mishaps of the individuals and groups he has worked with, allowing pertinent team building and leadership messages to be incorporated through outstanding storytelling.
