Jamie Andrew OBE

Inspirational Mountaineer

Jamie Andrew’s story is quite simply one of the most gripping and profound you will encounter and is guaranteed to leave any audience moved, inspired and motivated. Jamie has the ability to provide a long lasting boost to businesses whilst driving individuals to be the best in their fields as a motivational speaker.

Trapped on the icy north face of Les Droites, Mont Blanc Massif in January 1999, Jamie Andrew and his climbing partner Jamie Fisher endured a horrific five nights in stormy sub-zero conditions. The resulting rescue remains one of the most daring and dramatic operations in the history of the Alps, but unfortunately came only hours too late to save Jamie’s climbing partner.

Jamie Andrew survived after enduring hypothermia and appalling frostbite, which led to both his hands and feet being amputated days afterwards. Describing those few dreadful days during his talks as an after dinner speaker, Jamie’s tale of survival is nothing short of extraordinary.

Jamie’s survival story alone would be enough to thoroughly motivate and inspire audiences, but his tale spans further as a motivational speaker. Jamie learnt to walk again, run marathons and iron-man triathlons, took up skiing and remarkably began to climb the mountains he loves so much again.

Jamie recounts his story as an after dinner speaker with huge passion and honesty, this tale is nothing short of incredible. Every audience will appreciate his resilience whilst overcoming adversity in such a hostile environment.
