Jason Fox, otherwise known as ‘Foxy’, is a former Royal Marine Commando and Special Forces Sergeant. Fox has led and executed large-scale global operations including hostage rescue, counter-terrorism and counter-narcotics missions, as well as being a professional bodyguard, to name but a few! The skills and experience gained from his time in the military, in addition to the extreme challenges he now takes on as part of ‘Team Essence’ means he is the perfect guest speaker at WEM19.
Jason joined the military at 16 years of age and served with the Royal Marine Commandos. Ten years later, after a gruelling 6-month selection process, he joined the Special Forces. He served with the Special Boat Service as a demolition and counter-terrorism expert, Special Forces dog handler, jungle survival expert and combat swimmer. Due to his exceptional leadership skills, he reached the rank of Sergeant. It was during Jason’s 20-year career in the military that he learnt to focus on the end goal, have a tenacious attitude and to keep himself both physically and mentally fit. This has allowed him to stay at the top of his game.
Upon leaving the Special Forces in 2012, Jason experienced working within the corporate sector and security industry. He combined his expertise from the Special Forces with his experience in a business setting. It was in 2015 that Jason stepped into the world of TV and film. Fox assisted production crews who were working in hostile environments such as jungles, deserts and the Arctic. He is now involved in Channel 4’s series ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ as a Special Forces instructor.

He will also talk about how having a strong positive mental attitude helped him overcome dangerous encounters and achieve personal goals.
