Simon Weston CBE - Falklands Veteran and Charity Campaigner
In 1982 the Sir Galahad was destroyed in Bluff Cove on the Falkland Islands. On board was Simon Weston, Welsh Guardsman, a name and face that was going to become well known for his struggle to overcome his injuries (46% burns) and redefine his role in life. Simon's message is one of achievement, of triumph over adversity, of seizing the moment and succeeding.
"Simon was fabulous and the response back from the team has been more than positive. Some said they had met their hero, one member of staff phoned his Dad and Simon spoke with him, couple of the girls cried. He was very funny as well and gave some really good messages. Afterwards he sold signed copies of his children’s books (just in time for Christmas) and didn’t mind having his photo taken with individual staff which was great." Trident Social Investment Group
“Simon was absolutely brilliant and pitched his speech just where we wanted it – i.e addressing the children specifically as well as the wider audience. It’s testament to him that not only did he hold them in thrall for 30 mins … but they all seem to have absorbed and remembered a lot of his key messages about self-belief and taking responsibility for getting the most out of life.” Oratory Prep School
