Chris Moon Biography

Chris Moon - World Class Speaker & Presenter
Chris Moon challenges the concept of limitation. This former army officer with operational experience worked for a charity specializing in clearing landmines and the debris of war in Asia and Africa and is one of the few westerners to have survived kidnap in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge, negotiating not only his own release, but also that of his two Khmer staff after an ordeal of threatened execution in which he never assumed the role of victim.
In Mozambique he was blown up walking in a supposedly cleared area resulting in the loss of his lower right arm and leg. He survived through sheer determination and fitness. Less than a year after leaving hospital he completed the London Marathon and a Masters Degree in Security Management. He's done numerous marathons and many of the world's toughest ultra-marathons including the Great Sahara Run and Badwater the 135 mile continuous ultra through Death Valley to the mountains. He's taken parties to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and run the length of Cambodia to raise funds for charities assisting the disabled.
For ten years Chris has been inspiring audiences around the world on motivation, mindset and leadership. His individually customised speeches are filled with humour, passion and wisdom and he has top client ratings. Chris continually challenges his own limits and has an ongoing series of events in which he walks the talk.
Chris Moon - Motivational Speaker
Chris Moon has a fascination and a passion for the process of achievement. He is one of the most fortunate people in the world to be alive, but we don't need an extreme experience to be positive and achieve more, we just need to have an open mind and develop our self belief. Chris believes that everyone has the capacity to go one step beyond their perceived limits.
Chris Moon presents on the personal mindsets of excellent leadership and has worked with large blue chip companies and governmental organizations.
The way we think and our mindset are a matter of choice, even if we don't recognise it. Most successful people attribute their success to the way they think. Chris talks about different mindsets alongside perspective, attitude, beliefs and how we can adapt and change.
On the subject of diversity, Chris has worked with large organisations speaking, presenting and facilitating on diversity issues.
With Health, Safety and Security, Chris has experience of working in high risk environments and a Masters in Security Management. He's presented to large utility and oil companies on the mindsets around health and safety and security issues and makes what is sometimes thought to be a dry subject uplifting, humorous and relevant.
Chris Moon has featured in many newspaper and magazine articles and often broadcasts on television and radio. He was interviewed on the Parkinson Show and his autobiography One Step Beyond has been highly acclaimed.
