Lebanon's foremost sportsman and climber, Maxime Chaya was the first person from his country to hoist its flag atop Everest, and he did so en route to ascending the Seven Summits while also skiing all the way from the coast to the North and South Poles. A few years later, he rowed an ocean. Before that, and despite his homeland's civil war, Max went on to graduate with honours from the London School of Economics. He is now Bank Audi’s Corporate Ambassador, and besides his speeches to multinationals, Max regularly visits schools, universities and clubs, to help motivate the young generation to “climb their own Everest". He has been knighted twice for his achievements.
