An Inspirational Speaker and real life Superhero, who inspires people beyond the room

If there’s any inspirational speaker who holds the secret to resilience; it’s Adventureman.

Real-life Superhero Jamie McDonald – aka Adventureman! Not only has he overcome serious childhood illness but has gone on to complete some of the most ambitious, physically grueling, and often record-breaking challenges that have ever been attempted – all to give back and raise money for his charity, Superhero Foundation, who supports sick kids.

Some of Jamie’s challenges include a 14,000-mile bike ride from Bangkok to Gloucester on a secondhand push bike, running across Canada completing 200 marathons, as well as completing 210 marathons around America – all completely solo.

During these feats, he has encountered many obstacles, such as frostbite, mountain lions and monsoons, but overcame these to achieve his goals and raise as much as he could for charity.

As if this wasn’t enough, he has also cycled for 12 days without stopping on a static bike and spent 7 days running on a treadmill, with only 3 hours sleep per night – he entered the Guinness book of records for covering the greatest distance ever by a human in that time.

Jamie’s’ inspiration to push the limits of what the human body can achieve and his tireless fundraising for sick children make him the perfect representation for what inspirational speakers should be.

To date is raised over a million pounds for charity and very recently he was awarded the Pride of Britain.

Jamie’s stories help the audience to re-frame challenging circumstances as an opportunity to learn, and to grow. Through authentic examples from his adventures he demonstrates that when you vow to grit your teeth and stayed inspired, that’s when truly great things happen.

Power of connection

No matter who you are or what role you play within an organisation, the ability to connect with others on a human level can have a huge impact on your ability to achieve your goal. Jamie shares how powerful human connections across the world have enabled him to raise over £1,000,000 for charity and inspire the lives of thousands of others in the process. This talk topic is especially beneficial for front line, customer facing staff.

The audience will leave the room feeling empowered – in full belief that what they do, day in day out, really does make them a superhero too.

“After listening to your talk something happened in my heart that hasn’t happened since the passing of my 8 year old son almost 9 years ago. I went to the cabinet where I keep the things that remind me of my son. There I found a beaded alligator which my son made whilst in hospital. At the time he gave it to me and said “here mommy, this one is for you, so you will never be alone.” The second is a medal the hospital gave him for being a hero. After hearing you speak, I now want you to have both of these things. The alligator because I don’t want you to ever feel like you’re alone on your adventures, and the gold medal because you are my hero”

Cindy Hopkins
