If you don’t already know who Mark Beaumont is, he is a man with extraordinary talent.  An ultra-endurance adventurer, Guinness World Record holder, TV presenter and broadcaster.

His journey has seen him cycle around the globe in 194 days smashing the previous world record by 81 days and earning him the title of the ‘The Man Who Cycled the World’. However, this was not enough for the high calibre athlete who completed the challenge again but this time completing it in only 78 days, truly earning his place in the record books for the second time.

We are always seeking to work with innovative clients, but also outstanding individuals so are delighted to have had the chance to work with Mark over the past year on two projects involving longstanding client On. Mark was booked to speak as part of the On Cloud Edge speaker series, which featured pioneers from a variety of fields including female adventurer Anna McNuff. This initiative was supported by WeWork.  Learn more about the On Cloud Edge Speaker Series.
