Mark first made fame for an 18,000 mile round-the-world bike race, where he smashed the previous World Record by a staggering 82 days. He followed this with a 13,000 mile ride down the length of the Rockies and Andes, climbing the highest mountains in Alaska and Argentina. Off the bike, he has ocean rowed through the high Arctic and survived after capsizing whilst rowing the Atlantic.
Mark is passionate about sharing his and others stories, and has filmed a series of successful BBC documentaries. This includes presenting the build up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as the Queen’s Baton relay has made its way around 70 nations and territories.
He is an experienced and hugely engaging speaker, held Ambassadorial roles with companies for the last decade, and completed national speaking tours in the UK and internationally. Mark is also a dedicated charity fundraiser since his first cycle across Scotland at the age of 12 that raised £3000 to recently raising over £100,000 by running and swimming across Scotland.
In recognition of his work with young people, charity and his sporting achievements, Mark was named Top Scot 2011 and presented an Honorary Doctorate from Dundee University in 2013.

““Engaging, inspirational and enthusiastic captures the essence of Mark Beaumont’s presentation” TOTAL E&P UK
“He delivered a talk for us, which can only be described as one of the most powerful and inspirational ones we have ever had. It went far beyond even what we were expecting. He spoke about his adventures and delivered it in such a way that it could be applied to our own business and personal experiences. He took us behind what we have all seen on the television documentaries and gave a very honest and frank account of what he went through in terms of decision making, planning, organising, and ultimately delivering and management.” The Power Lunch Club
“Having Mark at our client event ‘made’ the evening – for us and for our guests. He was inspiring, interesting, but above all, a lovely presence at our drinks reception and meal. Mark is completely down to earth given all that he has achieved, and he spent lots of time, speaking to our guests.” REpower UK Ltd
