When it comes to inspirational speakers real-life superhero Jamie McDonald not only overcame his own childhood illness but went on to complete some of the most ambitious and physically gruelling challenges ever attempted.

These painstaking journeys helped him give back to the hospitals that helped him, whilst also raising money for sick children through his charity, Superhero Foundation – winning the Pride of Britain for ‘Fundraiser of the Year’.

Jamies challenges have included a 14,000-mile bike ride from Bangkok to Gloucester on a secondhand push bike, running 5000 miles across Canada, as well as completing 210 marathons around America – all completely solo.

During these feats, Jamie encountered many obstacles, such as frostbite, mountain lions and monsoons, but overcame the lot to achieve his goals. He has now raised over a million pounds for charity. 

As if that wasnt 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! This feat saw him enter the Guinness Book of Records for covering the longest ever distance in that time.

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

Jamies efforts to push the boundaries of what the human body can achieve and his tireless fundraising for sick children make him the perfect representation of what an inspirational speaker should be.

His determination and spirit never fail to capture his audiences’ attention and spark wonder and inspiration in their hearts.

If you are looking for an inspirational speaker, you will struggle to find somebody more unique and better qualified than Jamie – his ability to connect with an audience, coupled with his energy and enthusiasm is truly inspiring.

His triumphs over adversity and ability to keep going against all odds is truly inspirational. By recounting lessons from his own adventures and experiences, Jamie takes people on a journey, giving them self-confidence so that they can achieve anything they put their mind to.

“Having booked countless inspirational speakers before and feeling the pressure of running the biggest business award show held in the UK, booking Jamie is without doubt the best decision I’ve ever made. His passionate delivery of an innovative talk had over 800 esteemed guests hanging off his every word. Through a technically flawless and authentic presentation, he inspired the audience repeatedly – moving them from raucous laughter, to tears. The best thing about Jamie is that he doesn’t realise just how good he is. Never before have I had the pleasure of dealing with an inspirational speaker who is so talented, and yet so down to earth. I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again”

“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
