Ollie is a former UK Special Forces operative, whose military learnings have brought him success in a variety of fields, from TV to business. One of the founding Directing Staff on Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins, his charisma on the show has won him a legion of fans, and he has become a successful entrepreneur.
As one of the first former UK Special Forces members and star of Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins to talk openly to the media and reveal their identity, Ollie Ollerton has an incredible story to tell. A former Special Forces operative with the SBS, he has undertaken operations in some of the most dangerous and remote locations on the planet.
After leaving school and joining the Royal Marine Commandos, Ollie’s time in Northern Ireland and Iraq earned him a recommendation for the SAS. After joining the service's marine sister regiment, the Special Boat Service, he undertook high profile missions involving hostage rescue, counter narcotics, and counter terrorism.
When Ollie returned to the UK, after thirteen years overseas and on the frontline, he started developing a concept that would put his years of training and experience to best use and would benefit others. His Break-Point business is a leadership and development course aimed at the public and corporate sectors whilst also supporting veterans suffering the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It's a subject Ollie has spoken openly about, sharing his experiences and difficulties in adjusting to life, dealing with stress, and overcoming trauma.
Ollie is now also one of the training director/presenters of SAS: Who Dares Wins, a show in which he and other ex-Special Forces operatives recreate the SAS’s selection process with thirty recruits from the public. The show has become one of Channel 4's most popular, attracting over three million viewers per episode. Since starring in the show Ollie has also written a deeply personal account of life in and out of the military, also called Break Point, looking at the challenges he faced working to enter the Special Forces, under fire on the frontline, and coming to terms with civilian life. He has also written Battle Ready, a practical look at how to apply his training and experience to more everyday goals, risk-taking and leadership.
