Phil Campion

VETERAN OF MILITARY OPERATIONS & Fearless Motivational Speaker

‘Big’ Phil Campion is a military operations veteran of nearly every conflict-prone area of the world. Phil served as a soldier in the regular Armed Forces and as an elite operator and mercenary. Phil’s stories must be heard to be believed – including how he once fended off Somali pirates by throwing a fridge full of Coca Cola at them. Phil’s talks as an after dinner speaker and motivational speaker combine anecdotal humour with eloquence and charm, however the realisation of the danger he faced is never too far away.

Given up for adoption at birth, Phil found himself at home with violent adoptive parents and was subsequently sent to a series of Children’s homes. Phil left school at 16 and saw only one career path he wanted to take – the life of a soldier. Army life began in the Royal Hampshires for Phil, despite a challenging start to life, Phil went on to extraordinary achievements. Passing both the Royal Marines Commando and the Parachute Regiment, Phil became one of few people talented enough to do this. These achievements ultimately led him to go for the ultimate challenge, the Special Air Service (22 SAS). Phil’s career needs to be heard to be believed. An amazing individual, Phil is one of the after dinner speaker circuit’s very best motivational speakers.

After a distinguished career serving in many cutting edge combat operations in the SAS, Phil made the transition to working in the private military circuit and became a soldier for hire. Continuing in the same vein, Phil worked his way to the top of the game and soon controlled teams of up to 100 military operators across the world. Phil’s experience resulted in his invention of a digital dog tag, revolutionising personal security and medical care in remote and hostile zones.

Phil’s life story as an after dinner speaker provides enormous motivation and inspiration, his time as a military elite provides resonance with both personal and business life.
