Mark Beaumont is a record-breaking long distance cyclist, but is also a broadcaster, documentary maker and author.
The 28-year-old’s physical feats have taken him around the world from Argentina to Alaska while filming for the BBC. He has been an adventurer from an early age and when he’s not on an expedition he writes books, attends events, and also trains and plans for his next project.
Mark’s public speaking takes him around the globe visiting businesses and organisations. He is the first Corporate Ambassador for LDC (‘Lloyds TSB Development Capital’) and Patron of the Saltire Foundation, Scotland’s leading intern and fellowship programme. In his role as Patron for the Saltire Foundation Mark promotes the role entrepreneurs play in business by visiting schools.
He says: "I believe there is some kind of adventurer in all of us.
"My dream is to shape expeditions that push the boundaries of physical and mental capability with the world. Questioning what is possible is the key to success in every walk of life."
Mark carries out charitable work for a number of organisations raising money and awareness for causes close to his heart. He is a patron for the TUSK Trust and Orkidstudio, and is an ambassador for the Scottish Wildlife Trust as well as being a founding trustee of the Active Earth Foundation.
