Dean Stott

After making it through the British Special Forces gruelling six-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 most dangerous places in the world.

Stott left the military in 2011, after 16 honorable years of service, and continues to live by the Special Forces’ ethos of ‘the unrelenting pursuit of excellence.’ The determination required throughout his career has become an integral part of Stott’s character.

Post-military, Stott established a distinguished career in the private security sector. He was renowned for his willingness to take on any job, no matter how challenging – a man who went where and when others wouldn’t. He has faced extortions, kidnappings, civil war, pirates, military coups and was single handedly responsible for the evacuation of the Canadian embassy in 2014 – rescuing 4 diplomats and 18 military personnel.

In 2016, Stott was ready for a new project and wanted to do something impactful that would help others. He began training to cycle the longest motorable road in the world – The Pan American Highway. Stott completed the 14,000 miles route from Argentina to Alaska in May 2018, achieving two world records and raising more than $1.4 million US dollars for mental health awareness charities in the process. Stott passed through 14 countries on his expedition, crossing some of the most dangerous passages in the world. In the final stretch, Stott continued for 17 hours and, driven by his determination, covered 340 miles on his longest day.

Stott is now a renowned international speaker, presenting to FTSE 100 companies, sporting bodies, military departments, schools and businesses.

His recently released book, Relentless, shares his extraordinary, inspirational life story to date.  From his courageous military service and record-setting cycling adventures to his rescue missions and friendship with Prince Harry, the book takes a candid and honest look at the life perspective and shared stories of a real-life “James Bond.”  

Stott firmly believes, with the right mindset and plan, nothing you truly desire is out of reach. To him, “impossible” simply means, its hasn’t been done…..yet.
