Chris Moon | Speaker Biography

Survived capture by Khmer Rouge & severe injury in minefield
World's first amputee ultra-distance runner
Renowned speaker on resilience and overcoming adversity

Chris Moon is a renowned speaker and consultant who specializes in helping individuals and organizations worldwide improve personal and team performance. With over twenty years of experience, he has delivered keynote speeches and facilitated change and leadership programs in both the public and private sectors and international business schools. Chris has had the extraordinary fortune of surviving life-threatening situations, which have been featured in the Discovery documentary "I Shouldn't Be Alive." Before embarking on his humanitarian work, Chris served as a British Army Officer for three years, gaining valuable operational experience. He decided to leave the military and join a charity dedicated to landmine clearance. During his time in Cambodia, he was taken prisoner by the notorious Khmer Rouge, one of the most brutal terrorist groups in history. Remarkably, he negotiated his release and that of two colleagues, averting the threat of execution. In 1995, while working in a supposedly safe area of a remote East African minefield, Chris suffered a life-altering injury. He was blown up, resulting in the loss of an arm and a leg. Ironically, this incident occurred while he was engaged in one of the least dangerous activities. Chris's survival can be attributed to his ability to provide immediate self-treatment. Despite the severity of his injuries, he arrived in South Africa just fourteen hours after the incident, with doctors astonished at his ability to survive with such little blood. Chris's recovery surpassed all expectations, and within a year of leaving the hospital, he ran the London Marathon, raising substantial funds to aid disabled individuals in developing countries. Additionally, during this time, he completed a Master's Degree in human behaviour. Chris's determination and resilience led him to achieve remarkable feats. He taught himself to run and became widely recognized as the world's first amputee ultra-distance runner after completing the Marathon De Sables in 1997. He has since conquered some of the toughest ultra-marathons, including the Badwater Death Valley 135-mile ultra and the Devon Coast to Coast 117-mile Race. Furthermore, Chris has led numerous teams in completing demanding challenges, such as mountain climbing and cycling the length of Cambodia. Chris Moon's personal experiences have shaped his unique perspective on challenging limitations, adapting to change, and overcoming adversity. He passionately shares his insights and uses humour to engage his audience. Chris's presentations and workshops are interactive, tailored to specific outcomes and actions, and cover topics such as resilience, diversity, change, personal and strategic leadership, and behavioural choices. By drawing from his extraordinary journey, Chris inspires individuals and organizations to achieve their full potential.
