Bear Grylls has become known around the world as one of the most recognised faces of survival and outdoor adventure. His journey to this acclaim started in the UK, where his late father taught him to climb and adventure.
Trained from a young age in martial arts, Bear went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces, serving with 21 SAS. It was here that he perfected many of the skills that his fans all over the world enjoy watching him pit against mother-nature.
He has since gone on to host more extreme adventure TV shows, across more global networks, than anyone else in the world, including ITV, Ch4, NBC, Discovery and China’s primetime.
He has taken some of the worlds most recognised super stars along for the ride – including WIll Ferrell, Kate Winslet, Roger Federer, and even Barack Obama!
He is a BAFTA winner, a no1 bestselling author and the youngest ever chief scout to 50 million scouts globally.
Bear has spoken alongside some of the biggest names in the industry including Al Gore & Richard Branson as well as sharing the stage with Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum of Dubai.
He has spoken to small audiences of as few as 20 people to filled stadiums of upto 17,000 people.
“Bear did the keynote session at our 2016 Real event. An event for senior school leaders to come and think differently about the challenges they face daily. Bears talk was motivational and inspiring and gave everyone in the room something to think about. Dealing with Bear Grylls ventures was a pleasure and we would happily deal with them again.”
"Incredibly entertaining and absolutely thought provoking"
"Bears talk was absolutely the highlight of our event. All attendees were in awe of his storytelling ability. He has this unique ability to transport you to Mt. Everest or the depths of Sumatra and make you feel like you were right there in the trenches with him. I only wish we could've heard more stories!”
