Dean Stott is an esteemed British Special Forces veteran, with 16 years of honorable service in conflict zones and leading rescue operations. Known as ‘The Frogman’, he is a sought-after international speaker, security director, philanthropist, professional adventurer and author.
Dean travels the world giving lectures to a range of audiences, from business executives to students, and doctors to athletes. He uses his past experiences as a soldier to help others develop the strong mindsets needed to face adversity and overcome any challenges.
When his career in the Special Boat Service was cut short by a serious knee injury sustained in a parachuting accident, medical experts advised him that he would not be able to continue to push the limits of his physical boundaries. In spite of this prognosis, Dean built a successful career as a Global Security Director for Stott Consultancy, which he founded with his wife, Alana. He is called upon for personal and corporate assignments, providing security solutions for a range of clients, including UHNW individuals, political leaders, governments and royal families.
Dean is involved in many charitable endeavors. In 2018, he embarked on the Pan American Highway Challenge, cycling the world's longest road at 14,000 miles. Ultimately, Dean helped raise $1.2 million for the Heads Together campaign and 11 mental health charities. This endeavor also led to some impressive personal accolades: two Guinness World Records. He completed the challenge in a record time of 99 days, 12 hours and 56 minutes, becoming the first man in history to cycle the Pan American Highway in under 100 days. Dean is also an ambassador for the Special Boat Service Association, UK Emergency Services Giving and The Royal British Legion.
His 2019 book, Relentless, takes the reader on a journey sharing the experience of his army training, the clandestine special forces operations, his parachuting accident and record-breaking biking achievement.
