Christopher Robinson

“Lessons from the Battlefields”

Chris will be sharing with you his analogies from his 23 years of experience in the British Army and offer his own take on building resilience, dealing with adversity and maintaining a positive mental health approach. Chris Robinson, having fought on the front line in Iraq & Afghanistan, as well as serving time in war zone countries including Sierra Leone and Somalia, not only had to keep himself alive but also had to ensure the survival of his fellow soldiers in the Yorkshire Regiment. Chris tells his story with honesty, and compassion, with his message being centred around these:

3 main areas of development:

Building Resilience
Focussing on how challenging experiences in extreme environments can help to develop personal, and group, resilience and how to implement into the modern working environment.

Dealing with extreme adversity
Dealing with adversities inevitably faced in life, how to handle these big pressures using real times examples of life and death experiences.

Maintaining a positive mental health
Maintaining a positive mental health through the power of communication, having the ability to communicate with clarity, vision and compassion with those around us can help us maintain a positive and forward looking approach.

Having to make survival decisions and judgment calls whilst being under enemy attack in extreme situations has taught Chris some unique skills. Through stories from the front line, be inspired to achieve great success and use the tools Chris provides you, to be a resilient and ambitious individual.

These examples are geared towards empowering team members to be engaged and play their own part in an effective team environment through resilience and commitment. What it means to be resilient, having the ability to recover quickly from difficulties and toughness, being able to be knocked down and bounce back stronger from adversity. Chris engages his audiences every time and his ability to share his experiences from a life time of danger is inspiring, engaging and at the same time educational.
