A former Royal Marine Commando, Jason Fox has led and motivated teams during numerous high-pressure operations worldwide. He has since moved into the business arena of private security and serves as a consultant to the TV and film industry. Drawing on these fascinating experiences as a keynote speaker, Jason is well-placed to demonstrate how individuals can build emotional resilience and effectively execute strategies.
After two decades in the British Special Forces and a subsequent career in private security, Jason Fox has gleaned powerful insights about leadership, motivation, and operating under high-pressure; he translates this knowledge to the corporate world as a keynote speaker.
Jason (or ‘Foxy’) joined the Royal Marine Commandos at 16. Having completed the Special Forces selection, he spent the second decade of his term with the Special Boat Service (SBS), during which he led numerous operations around the globe, involving hostage rescues, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions.
He has since packaged these experiences into ‘Break Point’ – the ultimate team building day which puts individuals through challenging and gruelling Special Forces drills. In 2015, he began starring as a Special Forces instructor in the Channel 4 series SAS: Who Dares Wins, which recreated the SAS selection process on television for the first time.
After leaving the military in 2012, Jason co-founded Rock 2 Recovery, a charity set up to help the armed forces, veterans and their families cope with PTSD.
He eventually moved into private security, working with Sodexo Defence Services and XCell Aerial Surveys where he gained invaluable skills in project management and logistics; specifically, he is interested in the business side of the field, providing close protection for the likes of billionaires and oil executives (if the CEO of a big company is looking to sell, often competitors will look to exploit weaknesses).
In 2015, Jason started working in the TV and film industry, initially supporting production crews working in environmentally hostile areas such as the jungle, arctic and desert. During this time, he became one of the divers that found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd just off the coast of Madagascar!
As well as putting delegates through their paces on TV, Jason has been cast in a scene alongside Brad Pitt for a film he consulted on and has featured in an episode of the Gadget Show. He is also one of the main contributors to the book 'SAS Who Dares Wins: Leadership Secrets from the Special Forces' which shows how the leadership qualities forged in the services can be used in everyday life situations.
His speaking topics include:
- Planning and executing strategies
- Leading and motivating teams in pressurised environments
- Emotional resilience in the face of adversity
- Living with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
