Oli France guides teams through the world’s wildest places. He has shared his story across the UK and Europe at corporate and charity events, schools and award ceremonies.

Whether speaking to small teams, groups of 500 people, or virtually, to remote audiences, Oli’s mission is quite simple: To guide the audience on a journey, bringing empowering new perspectives on resilience, self-confidence, leadership and how we can fulfil our boldest life goals.

For over a decade, Oli’s adventures have taken him through deserts, jungles, mountains, and war-torn regions. He has faced spies, interrogators, minefields and arrest, along with avalanches, earthquakes, meningitis and severe dehydration, all while attempting to complete challenging journeys in remote corners of the world, alone or while leading a team.

What Oli has learned, however, is that in some of the darkest places and the bleakest situations, we can encounter untold beauty and unshakable strength, if we allow ourselves to find it. Oli France illuminates how we can unlock true self-confidence, develop our resilience, and shift our perspectives on what we think is possible.
