Olly Church

Director of Operations

Olly spent nine years as a British Army officer, three years as National Security intelligence officer, four years as a corporate Operations Director and Programme Manager and has also worked as an emotional coach and mentor.

Over the last twenty years, Olly has used his experiences of leadership in challenging situations to understand and nurture resilience in himself and his colleagues. Naturally accident-prone, a career as a missionary, soldier, intelligence officer and coach have offered plenty of opportunity to test the concept to the full, resulting in a deep appreciation of the benefits of mental fitness.

His biggest challenge to date has been a self-determined recovery from physical and psychological injuries sustained whilst fighting in Afghanistan. Seeking to understand and enhance his recovery, Olly has qualified as an emotional coach and mental resilience training instructor in a bid to share the insights learned during difficult times.

Olly is driven to help individuals and organisations to achieve their potential by contributing to inspirational, purpose-driven leadership and organisational cultures rejuvenated by embracing the opportunities offered by cultivating mental fitness.
