Not only do I climb mountains and teach our next generation of adventurers but I also spread the ‘go get ‘em’ word through public speaking to corporates, groups and in schools.

My talks are tailored specifically to each client brief and in many guises will walk you through my former life as a no saying, risk averse, comfort loving, height hating, suited and booted business person to saying yes once which gradually changed my life and took me on a journey I never thought possible.

Resilience is a strong theme from experiencing an earthquake whilst on Everest to facing fears and going back, supporting others, motivating, inspiring and ultimately saying that if I can do it, then so can so many more people. Everest is not for everyone but everyone has their own Everest.
