When Unilever wanted to double the size of their business and half their environmental footprint, they chose Lewis to address their leadership team.

Likewise when Microsoft needed to become more customer-centric, they picked Lewis to speak to them about the “Radical Tactical Shift” that enabled him to complete the first swim across a glacial lake on Mt Everest.

As an environmental campaigner, maritime lawyer and endurance swimmer, Lewis puts his hard learned lessons into the context of a corporate environment. As a thought leader, his message is highly relevant, inspirational and, most importantly, actionable towards achieving your own impossible.

In 2006, he became the first to person to complete a long-distance swim in every ocean of the world.

In 2007, Lewis was the first person to undertake a swim across the icy waters of the North Pole. In fact, he has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other swimmer in history. Each of these seemingly impossible feats were done to raise awareness about the vulnerable nature of water and its importance to humanity. And he won’t stop there. He continually redefines his own impossible, in the same way that any company is forced to, in an ever-changing world.

Lewis’s presentations have received widespread acclaim. His speech on leadership at the BIF Conference in Rhode Island was voted as one of the “7 Most Inspiring Videos on the Web”. His speech at TED Global has been viewed by over 1.5 million people.

He has received a number of awards including France and South Africa’s highest honours and the Freedom of the City of London. In 2010, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader for his

21 YAKS AND A SPEEDO

A collection of beautifully told short stories about how to achieve your own impossible.
21-yaks

Lewis Pugh has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other person in history.  He swam across the icy waters of the North Pole to highlight the melting of the Arctic sea ice, and across a glacial lake on Mt Everest to draw attention to the impact of climate change on the Himalayan glaciers.

It was there that he met his first Yak.

Trekking behind them up the icy slopes, watching them cross dizzying ravines, and listening to them breathe outside his tent each night, Lewis got thinking about the things he most admires in a yak. He found that those qualities were not unlike the ones that enabled him to meet his own challenges – and achieve things that people believed to be impossible.

The ’21 Yaks’ collected here are the key lessons Lewis took home from his expeditions. These were not just feats of physical stamina and endurance, but about overcoming the psychological obstacles to success. Which is why his strategies are as applicable to business and personal development as they are to extreme sports.

ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE
Lewis’s best-selling autobiography.
acheive

At a little after midnight on July 15, 2007, Lewis stood on the edge of the sea ice at the North Pole. It was the fifteenth anniversary of his father’s death and he was wearing just a Speedo swimsuit, the old-fashioned one that barely covers all that needs to be covered. Air temperature at the North Pole that night was below zero, the water into which he was about to plunge was minus 1.7ºC (29ºF) although this was no in-and-out dip into the world’s coldest water. Lewis was about to swim one kilometre across the North Pole and the thought did cross his mind that he might die.

This is a remarkable story and, ironically, extraordinary testimony to one man’s belief in life. Yes Lewis wants to help protect the most wonderful places on the planet, yes he wants us to reverse the damage we have done to our environment and yes he has given up everything to dedicate his life to this purpose. And it is not like he feels he is wasting his time.

Lewis spent the first ten years of his life in England, the next 17 in South Africa, and since then has lived in both countries, not forgetting great times spent in Norway. He is a maritime lawyer by training and a pursuer of dreams by inclination. There wasn’t an ocean or a sea that he didn’t want to swim, nor a mountain he didn’t want to climb and it was no surprise when he quit his well-paid lawyer’s job in the City of London for a life more interesting.

He spent five years in the British SAS, devoted his free time to preparing for and swimming in the world’s most hostile places; the North Cape, the Antarctic, the North Pole and developed an understanding of the beauty, the preciousness and fragility of life and its many eco-systems. Driven by nothing more than deep belief, he has achieved things most would regard as impossible. He doesn’t tell us what we must do but shows what can be done.

Inspiring. Motivational. Exceptional.
What are the qualities that make Lewis Pugh one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers? What is it about his talks that bring audiences to their feet? What is it about him that captured the imaginations of world leaders like Bill Clinton, Ted Turner and Desmond Tutu?

His talks make a difference, to individuals, and to organizations.

His dream is that they will make a difference to the world.

Walking his talk
Lewis’s ability to make his story matter has made him one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers.

On their 125th anniversary, Coca-Cola asked Lewis to address their world-wide leadership team. When Unilever decided to double their business and halve their environmental footprint, they chose Lewis to motivate their management team. And when Lloyd’s Insurance turned 200 years old, they asked Lewis to help them visualize their future in an increasingly unpredictable world.

As an ocean advocate, pioneer swimmer and explorer, Lewis puts his hard-learned lessons into the context of a corporate environment. He shares the visualization that enabled him to undertake the first swim across the sub-zero waters of the North Pole.
