“How can a 21 year old talk to me about success?!”

Inspirational Speaker Alex Staniforth

Already I’ve experienced, learned, succeeded (and failed) enough to tell a compelling story to over 5,000 people – inspiring them to overcome their own ‘Everest’ in life and embrace their fear of failure.

Rest assured I’m not your typical Everest speaker. I share a unique, honest and compelling account of my journey so far: from rock bottom to resilience on the worlds’ highest mountains, and triumph over adversity. My story explores the definition of success and failure, giving audiences an example they can relate to.

  • Embracing failure

  • Self-leadership

  • Resilience

  • Overcoming adversity

  • Persistence

  • Setting (and achieving!) objectives

  • Mental health and wellbeing
