Dave Walsh

Being a hands-on father to three young children and an aspiring strongman, Dave Walsh’s life was turned upside down overnight. Dave went from climbing mountains in the British Army to being unable to climb the stairs when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Although his journey to find his ‘new normal’ has not been an easy one, he is now a full-time wheelchair users but also Britain’s Strongest Disabled Man 2021 and the World’s Strongest Disabled Man 2022.

Dave demonstrates and promotes the power of positivity to overcome challenges and reach your full potential and dreams – whatever the setback.

Type Of Speaker


Dave delivered the most heart-warming and inspiring session to our Disability Employee Network and Veteran’s Network.
The session was packed out and we received wonderful feedback from our delegates: “Super inspirational”  “Totally absorbing” “What an incredible journey” “So helpful”. We particularly appreciated Dave’s warmth and candour about his highs and lows, and he shared many insights we could take away and apply to our own lives from managing mental health challenges, navigating the working environment through various shocks, dealing with illness and connecting with others. Thank you, Dave, I can genuinely say I won’t ever forget this event and how it made us feel as a group.
