The member’s only event at Birmingham City University on Tuesday 9 November, will see Colin, who is best known for appearing in Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins and Channel 5’s Secrets of the SAS, share his inspirational journey and insights into how he developed mental resilience.
Guests, who will be treated to a complimentary light lunch, will then have the opportunity to take part in their own ‘mission’, in which they will learn new skills used within the SAS.
Paul Cadman, Acorns Vice President and Chairman of the Business Club, said: “We’re so excited to launch Acorns Business Club with this exclusive event and are thrilled Colin could join us as keynote speaker.
“Colin is one of only a handful of men to have been involved in hostage negotiations, hostage rescue and a hostage themselves, and his experience, tenacity and determination will serve as an inspiration to all. This is really one event you won’t want to miss.”
