To launch Broadgate's inspirational talks series, we're thrilled to be hosting Brian Wood MC, author of soon to be released book 'Double Crossed', who has incredible life experiences from his time in the military which he now uses to help and encourage others.
The compelling memoir will see Brian speak about his 16-year military career which saw him awarded the Military Cross, but also learn to face his biggest battles including an ambush in Iraq, subsequent PTSD and being falsely accused of hideous war crimes. This talk will guide you to develop resilience and courage, advise on the best mindset to have in the face of adversity and how to make decisions in extreme situations - skills to take forward in your personal and professional life.
You'll also receive a copy of his latest book on arrival.
This talk is open exclusively for those who work in one of our buildings at Broadgate.
Brian Wood MC, former Colour Sergeant, Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, was awarded the Military Cross, one of Britain's highest awards for gallantry in combat, by the Queen, following his courageous leadership under enemy fire in Iraq. Following on from a 16-year military career, he struggled to re-integrate into family life, developing PTSD. His struggle continued when he was summoned to give evidence at an inquiry into allegations of war crimes by British soldiers during the Iraq invasion of 2003. After years of public shame, Brian took the stand and delivered a powerful testimony, and following the tense inquiry room scenes, justice was served.
Brian is now a frequent broadcaster and highly inspirational public speaker, delivering compelling sessions on leadership and grit, releasing his first book Double Crossed this year.
