With a robust background that includes over 10,000 hours of leadership in combat operations in the Middle East, Heston’s journey began when he enlisted in the army at age of 17.

Leveraging more than a decade of combat leadership, he passionately advocates for Learning Leadership and developing High-performance Mindset – integral components that have been pivotal to his success.

In addition to his military feats, Heston recently secured a legal victory by successfully suing the ABC and two journalists for false reporting of war crime allegations in October 2023. In his ongoing work, he remains resolute, dismantling stigmas surrounding critical issues and championing improved support for veterans.

As a sought-after speaker, Heston imparts his wealth of experience, emphasising the significance of leadership, mental toughness and adaptability.
