How to Build a Commando Mindset

Royal Marine Commando Ben Williams in conversation with Matthew Stadlen

Ben Williams was battling drug addiction when he made the decision to sign up to the Royal Marines. Find out how it transformed his life – and what the Commando mindset can do for you.

Caught in a Taliban IED attack in Afghanistan, elite commando Ben Williams saw his closest friends killed and maimed by an invisible enemy, experiencing the horrors of war first-hand. As he and his fellow marines demonstrated extraordinary courage and fearless leadership, putting the lives of their fellow soldiers above their own, he discovered that the qualities of mind shared by the Royal Marines can be taught and applied by each of us.

Ben Williams is living proof of the power of the Commando mindset. He was a drug addict battling suicidal thoughts when he saw an advert for the Marine Commandos. Locked into a cycle of isolation, depression and anger, with no qualifications and overwhelmed by feelings of worthlessness, he signed up for a journey that would not only change, but save, his life.

He joins How To Academy to share his story and impart the insights he gained from a decade in the military. He’s worked with organisations like the England Football Squad, WASPS and HSBC, teaching some of the world’s elite athletes and executives how to realise their potential and achieve their full potential. In this livestream event, he will share that knowledge with you.
