Jamie Andrew

Lessons from The Edge - making the most of what you have

Join in on a free webinar with speaker Jamie Andrew. Jamie has a truly remarkable tale of resilience, positivity, and facing challenges head-on. Having lost his hands and feet to frostbite after being stuck for five days near the summit of an Alpine mountain, Jamie has coped incredibly well and has turned his experience to something positive that has moved and inspired audiences across the board.

In January 1999, Jamie survived for five days at the summit of an Alpine mountain while a storm raged and temperatures dropped to minus 30 degrees Celsius. Suffering from hypothermia and severe frostbite, he was nevertheless still conscious when he was rescued by the French Mountain Rescue Service who arrived tragically only hours too late to save his climbing partner.

Ten days after his rescue, Jamie Andrew’s hands and feet, damaged beyond repair by the frostbite, were amputated. Three months after his quadruple amputation, Jamie emerged from hospital, walking on prosthetic legs and having relearned to manage everyday tasks like feeding, washing, and dressing himself.

Fearless speaker Jamie Andrew defied all expectations by then learning to ski, snowboard, sail, and paraglide, as well as running the London marathon and returning to climb once again the mountains that he loves so much. He has since run more marathons, completed Ironman triathlons, and climbed challenging mountains worldwide, raising tens of thousands of pounds for charity. In 2012, Jamie was awarded an OBE for services to charity.

Jamie’s presentations are hugely valuable for businesses. Drawing on his experience as a mountaineer, the challenges he faced when he lost his hands and feet, and the strength he found within himself in rebuilding his life, our speaker Jamie Andrew covers numerous concepts that are directly applicable to the business world.

Audience takeaways from the webinar:

  • Inside all of us, there is great strength and enormous potential. That strength and potential only needs to be unlocked by finding the right inspiration in life.
  • The challenges that we face in life are all opportunities. We need to search for the positive in every situation and how you could learn from the negatives in order to make the most of those opportunities.
