Chris Moon Inspirational & Motivational Speaker on Leadership and Change

Chris Moon is an inspiring and motivating speaker on overcoming adversity after losing an arm and a leg when he trod on a mine in a minefield in East Africa.

A former British Army officer, Chris had left armed forces to work for a charity clearing landmines in Asia & Africa. Having already survived being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge and negotiated his release and that of two colleagues from threatened execution, Chris was supposed to be in a safe area in East Africa when disaster struck.

Fourteen hours after the explosion Chris arrives in South Africa for treatment, the doctors aghast and amazed that someone with such a small amount of blood left in their body is still alive. Chris had managed to initially treat himself, which in many ways saved his life, but beyond that, he recovered far quicker than anyone expected and within a year had run the London Marathon, raised significant sums to help disabled people in the developing world, worked to ban landmines and completed a full-time Masters Degree.

Chris has been speaking at events for over twenty years and continues to receive fantastic feedback. He shares his experiences on the balance of life-and-death and limit of human endurance in a humorous and uplifting way to illustrate principles individuals can use and apply to their own situation. Chris leaves his audience energised, enthused, and equipped to work together constructively with greater resilience.


Chris has a passion for the process of achievement and has been a bespoke motivational speaker delivering to specific client briefs for ten years obtaining top feedback scores. In everything, he says and does he challenges the concept of limitation.

Some of the topics Chris covers in his speeches include –

  • Health & Safety & Risk
  • Leadership
  • Dealing with Change
  • Human Performance
  • Overcoming Adversity


Diversity & Inclusion

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.
