The Epic Journey to the Stage with Jamie McAnsh – 273

The Speaking Club · February 21, 2024

About Track

Waking up paralysed in 2014 completely turned Jamie McAnsh’s life upside down. 

He lost his job, and his independence, but he was determined to forge a new path and purpose for his life. 

That included becoming a top disabled athlete, and fulfilling his dream of climbing Mount Everest in 2022.

What he realised was that he had a great support network around him, helping him to achieve his goals, and he wanted to create something so that other people could experience that support too. That was when he created his company ‘See No Bounds’ with his wife Charlott. 

Today, Jamie divides his time between speaking all over the world on various topics, and building the See No Bounds global business community.

In this show you are going to get some brilliant insights into what it takes to keep going even when your life and world comes crashing down again and again! You are also going to get some great tips from Jamie around how he built his speaking career.





What you’ll discover:

  • How Jamie woke up paralysed one morning in 2014.
  • Why he had a funeral for his ‘able body’ in 2015, despite beginning to make a recovery.
  • How Jamie’s life was thrown into more turmoil and how he came through it.
  • The lessons he has learned so far from the adversity he has faced.
  • Why Jamie created, ‘See No Bounds’ and how COVID nearly took his business. 
  • How he got started speaking and why.
  • What he has learned about himself from speaking to audiences about his journey.
  • What Jamie got from his TEDx experience and the lessons he learned.
  • How Jamie prepares for his talks and where storytelling and humour fit in.
