Sam Lipscombe

Everest Summiteer and Adventurer


On the 22nd May 2013 at 7:16am, exhausted and suffering from dehydration I was lucky enough to summit Mount Everest. If you are interested in getting me to speak at your event, contact me by the form below.


I have been fortunate enough to experience some of the most remote parts of our planet. From the vast sand dunes of the Sahara desert to the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. Over the course of my adventures I’ve been hospitalised in Cairo, interrogated in Syria and lost in the Atacama Desert (wearing not much more than a 7ft Rhino suit).

Through spectacular imagery and expedition video footage I’ll share the ways in which I approach big challenges and set goals to achieve success. Blended with my experience in marketing and working in entrepreneurial environments, for business groups I often align these challenges with the objectives of the organisation.

I regularly speak to business groups, networking events, community organisations and charities about these experiences.

Some of the most common topics are:

  • Climbing Everest
  • Setting goals to achieve success
  • Deserts and remote regions
  • Leadership under stress
  • Teamwork
  • How to manage risk
  • Mental and physical endurance
