After making it through the Special Forces gruelling 6 month selection process, Dean Stott became one of the very first army members to join the SBS (Special Boat Service). Throughout his esteemed military career he has conducted deployments to overseas hostile environments and been involved in Counter Terrorism operations; he has travelled to some of the toughest places in the world.
Dean left his distinguished career in the Special Forces after suffering a severe knee injury in a parachuting accident in 2011, after 16 honourable years of service. He continues to live by the Special Forces’ ethos of ‘the unrelenting pursuit of excellence’ and the determination required throughout his career has become an integral part of Dean’s character. Dean remains in contact with many senior military officers and often comments on military topics in the press.
Dean Stott went on to work in the private security sector and became renowned for his willing to take on any job, no matter how dangerous. However, in 2016 Dean was ready for a new project and though he had never cycled more than a few miles before, he decided to cycle the longest motorable road in the world – The Pan American Highway. This challenge was in support of Heads Together – a mental health campaign spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and HRH Prince Harry, who is a personal friend of Dean’s. Dean began his cycle after just 18 months of training. He completed the 14,000 mile route in May 2018, smashing two world records, and has raised £1 million for the eight charity partners of Heads Together.
Dean Stott is fast becoming one of the UK’s most sought after speakers. Drawing from his wealth of experiences Dean provides inspirational and motivational talks at corporate engagements and private events.
