Power of Connection
Making a Difference
Jamie has become somewhat of an adventurer. Having spent most of the first nine years of his life in hospital as a result of a rare spinal condition, Jamie has spent many years giving back through phenomenal feats of emotional and physical endurance.
In 2012 when Jamie cycled 14,000 miles from Bangkok to Gloucester he slept rough, was shot at and arrested. Days later he broke the Guinness World Record for Non-stop Marathon Static Cycling, stepping off the bike after 268 hours (more than 11 days!).
If that wasn't enough he then ran 5000 miles (more than 200 marathons!) dressed as a superhero across Canada - the first person in history to do so without a support crew - and raised more than a quarter of a million pounds for hospitals. Jamie’s adventures made news all over the world.
Jamie is an international speaker and shares his story as just an ‘ordinary’ guy. Jamie speaks right from the heart and shows us the long lasting rewards of never giving up, embracing adversity and finding your inner superhero.
"The way you tied your story to our mission statement 'empowering people to achieve more' was outstanding. One of the best conferences we've ever had. I think the standing ovation at the end of your talk said it all."
"We flew Jamie around Great Britain to visit all of our offices’, he has a hugely entertaining story and is one of great personal endeavour; his tenacity in achieving his goals and in overcoming barriers is inspirational. Jamie’s engaging presentation style, his experiences and the challenges he faces, resonate well with his audience from a both a personal and business perspective."
"Jamie provoked laughter, tears, shock, more laughter and transmitted a whole chunk of pride and self-esteem to the audience, with his inspirational and uplifting story telling. 5 months later staff are still talking about it!"
"I’ve done some pretty hair raising things in my time, but even I’m not daft enough to take on some of the challenges you’ve completed!"
"Jamie has an inspiring story to tell, using his stories to motivate others with his incredible adventures."
"I watched Jamie inspire, entertain and motivate thousands of people."
