A UK Motivational Speaker, who truly Energises and Motivates

If there’s a UK motivational speaker who holds the secret to resilience; it’s Adventureman.

When it comes to UK motivational speakers, Jamie McDonald is an expert and is making a huge impact on people’s lives around the world.

After overcoming serious illness as a child, Jamie wanted to give back to the hospitals that had helped him and raise money to help sick children overcome their illness.

In 2012, Jamie bought a secondhand bike and set off on his first superhero adventure – a 14,000-mile ride from Bangkok back to Gloucester.

As if that wasn’t enough, Jamie then embarked on a run across Canada, following in the footsteps of Canadian fundraising hero, Terry Fox. Jamie has also completed a gruelling 210 marathon run around America.

During these challenges Jamie faced huge obstacles and some incredibly dangerous situations – from losing the end of his nose from frostbite, to a close escape from a mountain lion! Despite these often-hostile circumstances, Jamie remained motivated and determined to complete the challenges ahead of him, which is what makes him such a fantastic UK motivational speaker.

Even when he is not running or cycling around the world, being in one place doesn’t stop Jamie – he has broken world records and raised money for charity by staying in one spot.

Jamie has completed a 12-day static bike ride without stopping and entered the Guinness book of records for covering a distance of over 524 miles in 7 days, running on a treadmill.

That’s emotional and physical endurance that no man or woman has ever gone before.

Over the years, Jamie has raised over one million pounds for sick children so far through his charity, Superhero Foundation and recently he won the ITV‘s Pride of Britain, one of the most prestigious honours and awards in the country.

Listening to Jamie talk about the challenges he has faced and how he remains so positive and determined, will motivate anyone, and stir up the energy and excitement needed in achieving big personal and business goals.

Jamie connects with the audience and his boundless energy and courage in the face of adversity, inspires listeners to believe in themselves, build resilience and to keep going, despite what obstacles may be in their path.

Out of all the UK motivational speakers, Jamie really knows how draw upon his experiences to positively impact his audiences lives.

Through a technically flawless and authentic presentation, he inspired the audience repeatedly – moving them from raucous laughter, to tears.

“After listening to your motivational 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
