A former Royal Marines Commando, John Sullivan, founder of Elite Survival Training has worked in some of the most challenging environments around the globe.
From the cold of the artic, to the burning heat of the desert, John’s passion for exploration and adventure is truly inspiring.
Understanding that the daily routine of structured school timetables can often be deflating for many pupils, John regularly visits academic establishments all over the world, delivering passionate speeches to inspire individuals of all ages to pursue their dreams, alongside helpful strategies to assist them in remaining focused on achieving their goals in life, whatever they may be.
Johns speeches focus aspects including, but not limited to:
With a motivating dedication to his work, John’s training has seen him travel alone to some of the most isolated corners of this vast world. He has undertaken freelance consultancy work with some of the most popular television channels, helping to create factual broadcasts for the BBC, Channel 5 and the National Geographic Channel.
John set up Elite Survival Training in 2009, and believes that motivational speakers for schools are of paramount importance, especially during poignant times of the academic year, such as when students are undergoing exams or the stress of having to make life changing decisions, such as the courses they will choose to continue studying.
The speeches John delivers have proven to not only be beneficial for the individual pupils listening, but also often inspire the revaluation of educational processes, assisting in improving how the school can work together as an entirety.
John’s aim is to draw on the knowledge and life experiences he has gained to empower young people to inspire and motivate to improve their own personal development. John’s expertise comes highly recommended by a range of academic institutions, with Headington school stating “A fast paced and truly motivational talk, offering pupils inspiration to see the world and follow their dreams.
” The International School of Hague, Holland expressed, “John focused his talk on ‘Feeding the Rat’. Essentially the passion that lives inside of us needs to be fuelled whether that is sport, art, adventure, music and science.
He shared the virtues that people need to do that e.g. self-belief, hard work, persistence.” High praise has also come from Gartree High School that said, “Just wanted to say a big thank you to John Sullivan who came to our school to deliver a speech at our awards evening for Year 9.
He did a fantastic job; his speech was an excellent balance of motivation humour and inspiration. He kept us all gripped for 20mins. Many of our 300 guests have spoken to or contacted me since to say that he was the best speaker we have had in many years.”
John tailors the content of every speech he delivers to suit the age of his audience, teaching listeners to not fear challenges or changes they may face, whilst using humour and imagination to capture attention at every point throughout his well-structured presentations.
