Ed is a former professional rugby player turned charity founder, adventurer, mentor and broadcaster. With a career on the field in full flow, the number eight was to suffer a life changing spinal injury after accidentally diving into the shallow end of a swimming pool, a moment that changed his life forever. A quadroplegic, Ed was told he may never walk again. However, through sheer determination, Ed fought back against the odds with outstanding results. From getting his arms moving again so he could use a wheelchair, it wasn’t long before Ed was standing and then walking a mile. 
Today Ed is a man who has climbed mountains, conquered summits and defeated all the odds. He is a man who has proven that happiness doesn't have to just be a consequence of circumstance, it's there for us all if we know how to take it. And now, having first tackled millimetres that seemed like mountains, Ed uses his story to motivate teams and individuals who feel they are facing seemingly impossible challenges. Are you ready for your double shot of inspiration? Then it’s time to level up with Ed.
