Massively inspiring and hugely motivating 25 year old Ben is a double amputee who has managed to recover from stepping on a Taliban landmine in 2008 to running the London Marathon within 12 months of loosing his limbs. And he ran it again in 2010 without realising he had a stress fracture in his stump.

Brought home on the same flight as Prince Harry, Ben's injuries were so serious his chances of survival were slim but not only did he survive he is back living a full and fruitful life.

A TV natural he recently presented a strand for the BBC's The One Show and featured in the two part documentary `War Torn Warriors` during which he overcame massive hurdles to trek to Everest Base Camp. He also appears regularly on BBC's Newsbeat, LBC, Sky News and ITN news to name but a few discussing a variety of topics including motivation, disability, Afghanistan, motivating young people, treatment of injured veterans, being positive etc.

Ben's speeches are superbly presented and he inspires everyone he meets with his determined approach to a life without his left arm and lower right leg (and numerous other injuries.)
