Explorer and Motivational speaker

Ed Stafford is TV presenter and explorer and adventurer and is a motivational and inspirational speaker described by Sir Ranulph Fiennes as “truly extraordinary.”

A Guinness World Record-holder, Ed became the first person to walk the Amazon River, and in 2011 he was awarded European Adventurer of the Year and the Mungo Park Medal by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in recognition of outstanding contributions to geographical knowledge through exploration.

A former British Army captain, Ed filmed and blogged his Amazon River walk and engaged people all over the world for almost two and a half years. His extraordinary adventure made headline news, featuring in over 900 articles and on every major news channel in the UK and United States. Upon completion of his adventure The Daily Mail described him as, “Britain’s most intrepid hero since Scott of the Antarctic.”

His footage was converted into a documentary by the Discovery Channel and was sold to over 100 countries.

A successful author, Ed has written three books including ‘Walking the Amazon’, which has been translated into Mandarin, Ukranian, Polish, and Spanish as well as being sold to the USA.

Since his walk, Ed has gone on to film seven survival series for Discovery Channel. These included, Naked and Marooned with him being stranded naked on an uninhabited island for 60 days with no food, water, or tools of any kind to help him survive.

Ed is now an established face of Discovery Channel and his seventh series Ed Stafford: First Man Out aired on Discovery Channel late 2018 globally. Most recently Ed featured in a new Channel 4 series where he spent 60 days living on the streets in the UK.

Ed uses his adventures to inspire adults and kids alike to get outside and take some risks. In a world with increasing cases of mental health issues and a general feeling of disconnect, Ed believes passionately that adventures can be catalysts for personal growth and development.
