Nick Garland's Biography

Nick Garland is a proud and passionate speaker on trauma, mental health, including physical and mental resilience and overcoming challenges, both within the personal and business sphere. His unique near death experience, return to work and return to military operations is an inspirational snapshot of personal determination, leadership and a humble understanding of mental health. Nick’s talks are inspirational, insightful and are based on real experiences. 

Following a life-threatening injury sustained on the battlefield in Afghanistan – which left him fighting for his life in a month long coma, Nick was determined to recover and return to work.  On his road to recovery, he became aware of his trauma experiences and how they impacted many other people – as a result Nick understands intimately how actions impact people both in and out of the workplace. With strong mental resilience, Nick returned to combat operations in Afghanistan, where he once again led men and women through some of the toughest times of their lives.

Following a medical discharge from the Armed Forces in 2018, Nick now reflects on his past, linking childhood adversity to the successes he has had both in and out of service life. He discusses growing up with dyslexia and the effects of the debilitating illness M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). These experiences and those gained from his time in the British Army have given Nick a unique insight into achieving success by leading through adversity.

He is a professional in his own right, owning two businesses and is now the Head of a customer facing Technology company based in the U.K.
