Speaker(s) Jamie Andrew OBE – Amputee Mountaineer and Motivational Seaker

Jamie Andrew

Jamie Andrew is an incredible and inspiring individual.  He is the first quadruple amputee in the world to have climbed The Matterhorn in Switzerland, the first to climb Kilimanjaro in Africa, the first to complete a Marathon and the first to complete an Iron Man Triathlon.

Jamie Andrew’s story is quite simply one of the most gripping and inspiring you will encounter.

In January 1999 mountaineer Jamie Andrew and a climbing partner were trapped for five nights on the storm bound icy summit of a French mountain.  The rescue, which was one of the most dramatic in the history of the Alps, came only hours too late to save his partner. Jamie, despite suffering hypothermia and appalling frostbite, survived.  Days later all four of his hands and feet were amputated.

For many this fate would have meant the end of all hope, but not for Jamie.  Since losing his hands and feet Jamie has achieved some incredible feats.  He has learned to walk again, taken up skiing, run marathons and iron-man triathlons, and remarkably, returned to climb once more in the mountains that he loves so much.

Jamie’s story, recounted with honesty and passion, is nothing short of incredible.

Jamie Andrew is a regular presenter on IMD High Performance Leadership and Orchestrating Winning Performance programmes.

Leading from the Edge

Jamie shares his remarkable story, illustrated with stunning slides, in a simple and honest style that never fails to engage with audiences.

He explains how he was able to dig deep into his reserves, to be resilient, and to face up to the hardest challenges of his life using simple, key techniques such as goal setting and focusing on his key strengths.

Some of the important subjects that he touches upon include motivation, coping with change, team-work, using the strengths of those around you, and self-belief.
