About Adam Conlon

Adam is quickly establishing himself as one of the most entertaining speakers in the UK.

His talks cover the full range of events and occasions – from smaller school classroom talks, to after dinner speeches for hundreds of guests through to hosting large festivals.

Based mostly on his experiences as a British Army Officer, Adam’s talks are full of incredibly memorable moments taken from his adventures at home and on operations in Afghanistan engaging audiences of all ages.

The predominant themes Adam talks about reveal the less known human and lighter side of military life on the frontline while explaining how humour is a vital coping mechanism when working as part of high performing teams in high-pressured situations. Using entertaining stories from his Army all-inclusive adventures and from when things go wrong his talks allow the audience to be entertained while allowing important team building and leadership messages to be conveyed.

If there is one thing soldiers do better than anyone else and that’s taking photos of themselves while in often dangerous situations. The advantage of this is that Adam now has a collection of images and video footage to create an incredible first-hand visual back-drop to his stories, providing an in-depth experience of life on the front line that is rarely seen.
