TV's Jason Fox shares story at Business Club

Business Club members met at the home of Leicester Tigers to hear and meet special guest Jason Fox, former soldier and the longest serving directing staff on the popular SAS: Who Dares Wins series.

Guest were wined and dined in Mattioli Woods Welford Road’s Premiership Suite enjoying a two-course meal before a Q&A with ‘Foxy’.

The Business Club, in partnership with Mattioli Woods, is an exclusive membership inviting guests to the home of Leicester Tigers to hear from a variety of guest speakers, as well as make new business connections.

Jason took to the stage to share the story behind his life in the military, adjusting to civilian life as well as the success of SAS: Who Dares Wins. 

Fox joined the Marines as a 16-year-old “who had never left home and could barely make a cup of tea” but spent 10 years there before joining the Special Boat Service, involved in planning and leading operations including hostage rescue, counter-terrorism and bodyguarding.

Leaving the Special Forces in 2012, discharged with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), he went into facilities management before a break in television initially looking after a film crew and diving buddy on set. 

His break with SAS: Who Dares Win became a success for Channel 4, but it was his open and frank account of PTSD in his book – Battle Scars.

Jason spoke of the ‘Spirit of the Marine’s built around courage, determination, unselfishness and cheerfulness in the face of adversity, and the key pillars of leadership; Trust, loyalty and empathy. 

The event concluded with a Q&A session with members putting their questions to the former soldier concluding the first Business Club of 2022. 

The next event will take place on Wednesday, May 11 welcoming Sarah Armstrong-Smith, an industry leader in cybersecurity and chief security advisor at Microsoft.

As a member of the Business Club, guests will guarantee a place at upcoming events with the option to purchase additional guest places for single events.
