Scottish Mountaineer Jamie Andrew has confirmed he will address the final day of the conference in September. He is an inspirational speaker that should leave delegates ready to return home and inspire others.
Jamie Andrew’s story is quite simply one of the most gripping and profound you will encounter and it is guaranteed to leave any audience moved, inspired and uplifted.
In January 1999 he and a climbing partner were trapped for five nights on the storm bound icy summit of a French mountain. The rescue, which was one of the most dramatic in the history of the Alps, came only hours too late to save his partner. Jamie, despite suffering hypothermia and appalling frostbite, survived. Days later all four of his hands and feet were amputated.
For many this fate would have meant the end of all hope, but not for Jamie. Since losing his hands and feet Jamie has achieved some incredible feats.
Jamie’s story, recounted with honesty and passion, is nothing short of incredible.
