"Major Hill commanded B Company, 2 Mercian in some of the fiercest fighting seen by UK forces in Afghanistan. In command he was superb; incisive, instinctive, confident and brave"
General Tim Radford CB DSO OBE
A former high flying British Army officer, Stewart's life changed irrevocably when he suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury from a bomb blast whilst serving in Afghanistan in 2009. His brain's capacity to process information, plan, organise, and make decisions had been changed forever.
Forced to search for a new identity, Stewart harnessed the power of his brain and found rehabilitation through art, theatre work, writing, singing and giving back to charitable causes. His involvement with the Veterans Foundation, The Army Benevolent Fund and Style for Soldiers led him to speak at many large and small audience events.
The story of his incredible 5 years of rehabilitation and recovery touched the hearts of Royalty, TV stars and Business Leaders, as well as recovering soldiers and their families. They saw the positive impact he has on others and it wasn't long before he was in high demand.
Stewart’s story is instantly relatable and relevant to a commercial environment – it touches on the power of positive thinking, on embracing the power of the human brain to move forward, take ownership and embrace change to find personal success.
