Scottish Mountaineer Jamie Andrew will address the final day of the conference. Jamie’s story is inspirational and is one of the most gripping and profound you will encounter.
In January 1999 he and a climbing partner were trapped for five nights on the storm bound icy summit of a French mountain. The rescue, which was one of the most dramatic in the history of the Alps, came only hours too late to save his partner. Jamie, despite suffering hypothermia and appalling frostbite, survived.
Days later his hands and feet were amputated.
For many this fate would have meant the end of all hope, but not for Jamie.
Jamie’s story, recounted with honesty and passion, is nothing short of incredible.
