Nick Goldsmith

Nick Goldsmith is a former Royal Marine Commando who served 11 years for his country,
from 2007 to 2018.
Now an international speaker and author, he is also the co-founder & CEO of Hidden Valley
Bushcraft, an award-winning outdoor activity company powerfully changing the way in
which we approach positive mental health.
After completing six operational deployments in some of the most hostile & demanding regions
in the world, Nick founded & led the team behind the Woodland Warrior Programme, a
globally recognised initiative featured in a 2022 BBC documentary. Supported by Invictus
Games & the Veteran’s Foundation, among other prestigious organisations, the programme is
now entering its 7th year. Drawing on his deeply personal experience of overcoming a
diagnosis of Complex PTSD, it harnesses the healing power of nature to support the
rehabilitation of Armed Forces & Emergency Service Personnel within a woodland setting.
Nick’s first book, Re-Wild Your Mind, published by Wellbeck, launched in March 2023.
