Jake Meyer is a refreshing after dinner, keynote, and motivational speaker and brings his youth and vigour to speaking.
Jake started climbing aged only 12, and at 14 set himself the challenge of attempting to climb the 7 Summits, the highest mountain on every continent. On the 4th June 2005, aged only 21, he stood on the summit of Mount Everest, his 7th continental highpoint. At the time he was the youngest Briton to climb Everest and the youngest man in the world to climb the 7 Summits.
In 2006, he broke the world record for climbing the highest mountain in every State in the Continental USA. 48 States, over 100,000ft of climbing, 350 miles of trekking and 15,000 miles of driving in 23 days, 19 hours and 31 minutes.
In 2009, Jake attempted K2, the second highest mountain in the world (and widely regarded as the world's hardest and most dangerous mountain). After over 2 months on the mountain, and during his final summit bid, poor snow conditions and faulty equipment forced him to retreat at 7650m.
Jake is also an experienced public speaker, having spoken about his expeditions and given motivational and inspirational talks all over Europe to numerous businesses, private and public events, and schools.
