Former Royal Marine, online coach and motivational speaker
Having joined the Marines aged only 16 and going on to pass Commando Training first time despite struggling through the entire process because of his young age and an uncontrollable stammer, David knows first-hand what it takes to push forward when times are tough and achieve anything he sets his mind to with a non-quitting mindset.
Based at 45 Commando throughout his military career, David served just shy of 8 years in the Corps embarking on exercises and operations all around the world including a 6-month tour of Afghanistan aged 18 where he was involved in a grenade explosion suffering multiple injuries and requiring 28 stitches to his neck, arms, legs and buttocks.
David is now the proud owner of Civvy 2 Commando, a company that both physically and mentally prepares civilians with aspirations of joining the Royal Marines to give them the best possible head start on basic training and increase their likelihood of becoming a Commando. Intent on practicing what he preaches about stepping out of your comfort zone and becoming comfortable being uncomfortable, David has now gone full circle in the recovery of his stammer by stepping into the public and motivational speaking sector.
Endurance athlete, adventurer & public speaker
Angus’ expeditions have predominantly taken shape in the field of ocean rowing, having been a leading team member in three successful ocean rowing campaigns, in three different oceans and claiming a number of records along the way.
In 2014 Angus and the Fast Row West team set out to break the Four Man record across the Indian Ocean. After 71 days at sea and being forced to change route, the team set a new speed record and became the youngest four-man team to row any ocean. In 2016, Angus skippered team Ocean Reunion and completed the Atlantic Crossing in a new race record in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. In 2017, he went on to beat this record and set a new World Record with Team Latitude 35.
These records saw Angus make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for The Fastest Four Man team to row the Atlantic, The Youngest Four Man team to row any ocean and The Youngest Person to row three oceans.
Prior to ocean rowing, Angus trekked through the heart of the Papua New Guinea rainforest, raced Tuk-Tuks across the width of India and completed ultra-marathons.
Angus now trains teams and organises expeditions for individuals and teams from around the world and is also a motivational speaker inspiring people to push their physical and mental boundaries and show that with hard work and determination anything can be possible.
