Mick's roll of honour is quite extraordinary. He is the recipient of the General Service Medal (for Northern Ireland), the South Atlantic Medal (Falklands), the Iraq Medal, the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross, the NATO medal (Balkans), the Queen's Silver Jubilee Medal, the Operational Service Medal for Afghanistan and the Military Cross.
Mick is a veteran of campaigns in Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Iraq and Bosnia and has fought on three tours of Afghanistan. With such a diverse and extensive range of fighting experience, Mick understandably has some extraordinary stories to share as a speaker.
As Andy McNab says, "From the Falklands to Afghanistan, Mick Flynn has been looking for trouble for over 30 years - and finding it…"
Mick was awarded his Military Cross for fighting 30 Taliban rebels during an ambush in the Afghan village of Musa Qala. It was also awarded for the rescue of Household Cavalryman Martyn Compton, a soldier who was severely injured when his vehicle was blown up. His gallantry was held in the highest regard, as an Army officer described Mick's actions as "an amazing act of bravery, the kind of thing you'd see in a Hollywood blockbuster".
Mick has written a highly regarded book, "Bullet Magnet", about his experiences that have seen him become Britain's most decorated serving soldier.
With the diversity of his career Mick is able to draw on all his experience to deliver speeches that not only intrigue the audience but are also able to enlighten them on topics such as teamwork, leadership and success.
