Chris Robinson's Biography

Chris Robinson has lived a life of danger, having spent over 23 years serving in the British Army. Chris completed several frontline tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and spent time in other war-zone countries including Sierra Leone and Somalia. Having to make survival decisions and judgement calls whilst being under enemy attack in extreme situations has taught Chris unique leadership skills. Chris now inspires his audiences with his story – “Lesson from the battlefields”, having served in some of the most dangerous environments on the planet including Iraq and Afghanistan.

Chris latterly served as part of the British Peace Support Team (East Africa) based in Nairobi, Kenya, where he travelled all across the East Africa region to instruct courses to officers and soldiers from allied nations – chiefly those who would then deploy as part of the African Union Mission to Somalia. It was during this period as an instructor and mentor that Chris realised that he had a real passion to deliver training and develop the skills of others. He has a keen interest in a plethora of training and presentational techniques and methods with proven results. These have often been tried and tested in difficult, stressful and culturally diverse environments.

On leaving the Army, Chris set up Maven Group, a company with a mission to deliver presentation skills and training courses modelled on sound and proven training techniques. As well as delivering these courses to corporations all around the UK, Chris is an accomplished keynote speaker, drawing on his time in the military to bring lessons from the battlefield to leaders and managers in business.

By telling his story to audiences, Chris shares his knowledge on adversity and how to handle pressure and uncertainty during difficult times and in dangerous environments. His audiences learn how to exploit these experiences by sharing and building both personal and team resilience, and how to maintain and build a positive mental approach during times of extreme difficulty. This allows them to implement this into personal and professional environments.
