Alain Robert is the world renowned free-climber better known as the French Spiderman.
Alain is famous in over 100 countries for climbing over 140 of the world’s tallest buildings with his bare hands – without ropes or any safety equipment.
Alain spent his youth on the unforgiving cliffs of southern France. In 1982 he fell head-first onto solid rock, suffering a five-day coma and multiple fractures. In 1994, he climbed his first skyscraper in Chicago and the ‘Human Spider’ was born.
Suffering from vertigo and despite being 66% disabled, Alain continues to climb around the world bringing attention to important causes and breaking records.
His achievements have been formally recognised by Guinness World Records with several certificates presented to him.
Alain Robert has climbed many legendary buildings including:
- The Sydney Opera House
- One Canada Square – London
- The Eiffel Tower – Paris
- The IBM Tower – South Africa
- The Empire State Building – New York
- The Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco
- The Luxor Hotel – Las Vegas
- The Burj Khalifa – Dubai
- Taipe1 100 – Taiwan
After his accidents or before climbing any building with his bare hands, Alain Robert has always called his life into question and continued to take calculated risks. He is not afraid of failing; that’s how he always achieves his goals.
He prepares carefully for any ascent. He trains hard; his mind is totally concentrated on it. He knows that he’s got to get it right.
Alain demonstrates the same focus and leadership while speaking at conferences around the world.
As a motivational speaker, Alan focuses on Motivation, Risk and Overcoming Your Fears.
