There can’t be too many people who don’t know of Bear Grylls – possibly the world’s most famous person in terms of climbing, adventure and survival. But now they can listen to him as a motivational speaker who has some of the most amazing and inspirational stories to tell.
Bear – real name Edward – learnt many of his skills when he spent three years as a member of the renowned and respected Special Air Service (SAS) unit of the British Army. He has gone on to become the youngest ever head of the UK’s Scout movement, to become lieutenant colonel in the Royal Marines Commandos and to be awarded an honorary commission as lieutenant commander in the Royal Navy.
Since leaving the SAS, the motivational speaker has battled against the odds to become one of the most widely known individuals on the planet. Grylls’ TV show Born Survivor is reported to have been seen by a staggering 1.2bn people. Also known as Man vs Wild or Bear Grylls: Ultimate Survival, the series sees Bear deliberately put into impossibly difficult environments and use his skills to find his way back to civilisation. Other programmes include Wild Weekends and Island of Lost Blokes.
Other examples of Grylls’ toughness can be seen in him surviving a parachuting accident – in which he broke his back three times – then going straight from recovery to climbing Mount Everest! He has also led many incredible expeditions and raised millions for children’s charities around the world in the process.
