At the age of 14, Jake Meyer set himself the challenge of becoming the youngest person to climb the 7 Summits; the highest mountain on each continent. On the 4th June 2005 at the age of 21, he stood on the summit of Mt Everest, thus becoming the youngest Briton to climb Everest, as well as the youngest man in the world to complete the 7 Summits.
Although his Everest record has now been beaten, he continues to find new and exciting projects to challenge himself with.
Jake brings his youth and vigour to speaking; his confident and natural style has held the interest of even the toughest business audience. He has been a regular speaker at events like The Times Destinations show at Olympia and Birmingham NEC as well as the keynote speaker for senior management events for Royal Bank of Scotland and Deloitte.
"Finding new speakers each year for our Awards, one who really inspire is difficult, this year it was easy; Jake was superb and a real hit with parents and pupils." Ardingley College, Haywards Heath, West Sussex
