Matthew Ollie Ollerton was one of the first former UK Special Forces members to talk openly to the media and reveal his true identity. He has an incredible story to tell.
A former Special Forces operative with both the SAS and SBS, Ollie has undertaken operations in some of the most dangerous and remote locations on the planet and is one of the most highly trained fighters in the world.
After leaving school and joining the Royal Marine Commandos, Ollie’s exploits in Northern Ireland and Iraq soon earned him recommendation for the SAS. After joining the Special Boat Service, he undertook high profile missions involving hostage rescue, counter narcotics and counter terrorism, amongst other things. Ollie then went on to use his expertise as a private bodyguard where he was responsible for employing and training a 2000 strong Iraqi guard force, before heading to South East Asia to command a three man team infiltrating child trafficking rings, a cause that is still close to his heart today.
Ollie returned to the UK in 2014 after 13 years overseas, he started developing a concept that would put these years of training and experience to best use and would benefit others. With this BREAK-POINT was born; a leadership and development course aimed at the public and corporate sector also supporting veterans suffering the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
In 2015, Ollie first appeared on Channel 4’s ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’, a show whereby Ollie and other ex-Special Forces operatives recreate the SAS secret selection process with 30 recruits. Since then the show has grown into one of Britain’s best loved shows.
Ollie’s day to day outside of his TV work is as CEO & Founder of Break-Point. Break-Point work in the human performance field for the corporate and public sectors.
