Youngest Briton to Climb Mt. Everest

30 Minutes With: Jake Meyer

Jake Meyer is one of those throwback British adventurers, in the mold of Shackleton, Scott and Fiennes. He’s tough but refined and well-educated, positive but not giddy, understated but confident, and has that mix of derring-do and panache that we admire. Meyer, who at one time was the youngest Brit to summit Everest, is now a management consultant who applies what he learned on the world’s highest peaks to business best practices. But don’t think he’s gone soft. We recently had a chance to catch Meyer in his London offices for 30 minutes of Q & A.
