Hannah is a Captain in the British Army. She commissioned in 2010 and since that time has commanded soldiers across the world including in Germany, Canada, Kenya and Afghanistan. Hannah is also a transgender woman and her personal story of transition captured the imagination of the nation in 2015.

A true advocate for equality, she used her public profile to promote a realistic portrayal of transgender individuals in the UK, becoming an inspiration to many. Outside the Army she acts as Patron for the charity Mermaids and is an ambassador for LGBT Sport in Wales.
Her work in diversity has won her several accolades including Cosmopolitan Woman of the Year, an honorary fellowship from Cardiff University and in June 2019, an MBE for her work updating LGBTQ policy in the British Army.

Inspiring, compelling and engaging speakers, Hannah and her Partner Jake share passionate talks on gender, equality, and diversity.

They have presented keynote speeches, fireside chats and Q&As both in person and virtually and are best known for their documentary ‘Our Baby: A Modern Miracle’ which was on Channel 4 following their journey on starting a family through surrogacy.

Whether you’d like to book them together or individually, they share their personal accounts and unique perspective demonstrating the importance of supporting trans and LGBTQ colleagues within the workplace and beyond.

Hannah’s experience as a decorated Officer who transitioned within the Army perfectly places her to speak with confidence on all aspects of the military, diversity and inclusive leadership.
