Bear Grylls Motivational speaker

Bear Grylls

London, UK

Adventurer, motivational speaker and best-selling author

Presenter of Born Survivor on Channel 4

Youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest

Bear Grylls has become known around the world as one of the most recognised faces of survival and outdoor adventure. He learned many of his renowned survival skills as a trooper, medic and survival instructor for the SAS.

After suffering a free fall parachuting accident, Bear spent 18 months in rehabilitation and achieved his life long dream to climb Mount Everest at the age of 23. He holds the world record for the longest indoor freefall jump, the highest paramotor flight and is the only man to have circumnavigated the UK on a jet ski.

Bear has authored 15 books, including the number one best-seller: “Mud, Sweat & Tears” (Channel 4, 2012) which was voted the most influential book in China for 2012. Other best-selling titles include “Facing Up” (Pan, 2011), “Facing the Frozen Ocean” (Pan, 2011) and” Born Survivor” (Channel 4, 2007) and He presented The Island with Bear Grylls, first shown on Channel 4 on 5 May 2014, all of which showcase his skills as both a communicator and as a survival expert. Born Survivor was aired on television and has had over 1.2 billion viewers.

Bear Grylls is a tireless fundraiser for his favoured charities. He held the world’s highest ever dinner party in aid of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, crossed the North Atlantic in aid of the Prince’s Trust and crossed the Northwest Passage on an inflatable boat in aid of Global Angels. He is a keen environmentalist and pioneered the use of a fuel made out of rubbish when circumnavigating the British Isles on a jet ski. On 9 April 2015, The Scout Association announced that Grylls would continue as Chief Scout until 2018. Grylls wrote, “I am so proud that the largest youth movement on the planet has asked me to continue in my role as UK Chief Scout.”

Outside of TV, Grylls works as a motivational speaker, giving speeches worldwide to corporations, churches, schools, and other organisations.
