REQUEST A SPEAKER

Energetic, persistent and a great communicator, David Meca is a pioneering Spanish swimmer in long-distance open water swimming. As well as being the first and only swimmer in history to have won four medals in one World Championship, he is able to apply his experience and training to day-to-day activity in businesses, which is why he has become a renowned expert in coaching, leadership and working in elite teams.

David Meca is a specialist in big challenges, such as swimming across the English Channel, the Strait of Gibraltar and the San Francisco Bay. He has contended with the cold, dehydration, shark-infested waters and the risk of diseases, and in order to overcome the adversities has been able to count on a team in which all the cogs turn smoothly.

In his talks and in his book Swim: Consigue lo que te propones (Swim: Achieve What You Set Out To Do), he extrapolates his experience to the business world and argues that a similar spirit is required to succeed in both environments.

He has taken his practical, innovative approaches to organizations such as Coca Cola, Bankinter, Sanitas, Prosegur, SEUR and the Spanish Society of Cardiology, as well as a long list of public authorities, educational establishments and sports clubs.

He studied Economics, Architecture and Film at the University of Southern California thanks to a sports scholarship. During his career as a swimmer he has won over 50 international titles in long-distance open water events and holds more awards in this category than any other swimmer.

He has has received awards such as the Medalla al Mérito Deportivo (Sports Merit Medal) from the Spanish Olympic Committee, the Real Orden al Mérito Deportivo (Royal Order of Sporting Merit), the National Sports Prize and the Gold Medal from the Spanish Swimming Federation. David has also been in the International Swimming Hall of Fame in the US since 2009 and in 2015 published his autobiography Yo no temo a los tiburones (I’m Not Afraid of Sharks).
