Jake Meyer WWTW Ambassador

Jake Meyer is a world-record breaking British Mountaineer, a full-time management development consultant for the Inspirational Development Group (an award-winning business performance improvement organisation) and a commissioned officer in the British Army Reserve including serving on operations in Afghanistan.

He became the youngest Brit to climb Everest in 2005 aged 21 and 134 days as well as complete the 7 Summits (Bass variant) and summited K2 at his third attempt in 2018 after 10 years of trying. 

Jake set a record in 2006  of the fastest ascent of the highest mountain in every State in the contiguous USA (The Lower 48) and has visited the highest point in every county in England (all 82 in 7 days, 4 hours and 20 minutes). 

“For many, leaving the forces is just the next adventure after a career of adventures, but for others, the transition can be a trying and testing time. WWTW does an amazing job at providing support to those who need it the most, and enabling them to move onto their next challenge. The achievements of not just the WWTW adventurers, but so many service-men and women coming to the end of their military careers is an inspiration to us all, and it is an honour to support the incredible work that WWTW does. “

Walking with the Wounded offers support to veterans looking to get back into employment. We have supported many veterans into employment as can be seen in our case studies. Veterans charities like Help for heroes offer similar services.
