Oli France is an adventurer and professional expedition leader and inspirational speaker on leadership and confidence.

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 France 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 illuminates how we can unlock true self-confidence, develop our resilience, and shift our perspectives on what we think is possible.

Oli France has guided teams through countless high-risk situations across the globe, from the highest mountain in Iraq, to the militia-filled jungles of the Congo, to the backstreets of Aleppo, Syria. The pressures and perils of expedition life mean that quickly developing high-functioning teams is vital.

Oli shares his leadership lessons from these demanding environments, where calm decision-making, intensive planning, open communication and understanding the human factor within our teams is critical.
