"The Mark of Man isn't the Manner in which he falls... But the Manner in which he rises."

For Tony Harris the journey through hell led to the greatest adventure of his life, an adventure that has just begun and has allowed him to pursue excellence in another field... Motorsport! 

Christmas: Dakar Ready

Now is the time for all things festive but unfortunately there will be no drinking from the gravy boat for me or the rest of the Race2Recovery team as we prepare for our second Dakar adventure. Two Wildcats and one race truck will be supported by the fearsome T5 8x8 support truck and two Land Rover Discoverys as we tear through Argentina and Chile on one of the most complex and arduous Dakar's to date. The race will cover over 9,000km with some terrifyingly huge stages on gravel, sand, slat flats and at altitude - don't miss out on the adventure and follow us on the Race2Recovery Facebook page or website.


Recently I have been away giving a number of talks and some of the stand out memories were addressing the AiTO conference in Malta to 140 delegates and talking to more than 200 students at Mastbaum High School in South West Philadelphia. The last talk also gave me the opportunity to meet up with my old USMC buddy Cpl Tim Read to talk about the Dakar, future plans with US injured service personnel and of course watch the annual Army vs Navy American Football game.


I am currently in the process of developing a series of 10 leadership lectures ready for 2014 and think that the balance of theory coupled with practical application will be a must for businesses around the country so if you are interested then do please email Kiki This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are also very pleased to announce that I will be doing more work with another injured colleague of mine called Martin Hewitt, some of you may remember that he walked to the North Pole with Prince Harry, mounted an attempt on Everest and is currently planning the Grand Slam of 7 summits on 7 continents as well as the poles. An inspirational ex-Parachute Regiment officer Martin and his team at Fieri work in a similar field to myself and we are looking forward to working together to develop an authentic and first class leadership training opportunity for high performance teams.


I wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year and once again I encourage you to get behind our Race2Recovery team on the Dakar 2014.
