Jack Sutcliffe

Everest Explorer & Motivational Speaker

With a history of undertaking some of the hardest physical challenges on earth, Jack Sutcliffe has climbed a multitude of peaks in the Alps, cycled from Lands End to John O Groats and swam the English Channel alongside his siblings. However, when Sutcliffe decided to climb Mount Everest via the fearsome Northern Ridge, Jack would join an elite club of mountaineers to make it to the summit, as well as only the second Briton.

Jack’s amazing accomplishments make him one of the best motivational speakers on the after dinner speaker circuit.

During Jack’s ascent of the largest mountain in the world, his decision to avoid the conventional southern route made his undertaking even more daring and difficult. Sutcliffe faced huge gorges, icefalls and altitude sickness on his climb, showing his drive and determination for achievement, something he relays wonderfully as a motivational speaker.

Jack’s preparation for his ascent did not exactly go to plan, catching salmonella a few months before his trip as well as having to have root canal surgery at 5300m. However things did not get ‘interesting’ until Jack actually tackled his mammoth undertaking. Reaching base camp first at 8300m, Jack was shocked to find that their oxygen supplies has been used for a rescue mission only a few days earlier.

Jack still managed to achieves this unbelievable feat despite having to help a colleague descend from 8300m to 5300m after suffering from a condition that caused him to faint without warning at any time. With Jack’s inspirational story, such was his focus to help his friend that it was only when he was back at base that he realised he couldn’t feel any of his fingers.

Sutcliffe’s eloquence and articulation as a motivational speaker make him a wonderful personality for social and business environments alike. Jack challenges people from all walks of life to be the best they can be and to strive for all their goals and ambitions they possess. Perfect for day events or as an after dinner speaker, Jack can tailor his presentations to a client’s brief as well as introduce photos and footage of his explorations for a compelling and engaging talk.
