Neil Laughton has lived the sort of dramatic, adventurous life that many of us wish we could live. He survived the 1996 disaster on Mount Everest, which Jon Krakauer wrote about in Into Thin Air; he rode a jet ski around the British Isles; he drove/flew a flying car from London to Timbuktu; he’s completed the Explorers Grand Slam; and he’s hung out with Bear Grylls.
Laughton, a former Royal Marine Commando and SAS officer, is also an entrepreneur. He launched the Business Leadership Academy last year to give businessmen and women leadership skills in the same way the military gave gave him the skills that have allowed him to be successful.
Laughton’s list of been-there-done-that’s is long and and impressive, and his exploits have taken him around the globe. He’s definitely an adventurer worth keeping an eye on. Here’s his interview with the Telegraph.
