As a young motivational speaker I have already spoken to over 7,500 people across the UK, inspiring them to overcome their own ‘Everest in life’. Despite being 22, I have experienced, learned, succeeded (and failed) enough to tell a unique and compelling story that anyone can relate to – and my age brings the story home even more. So many people are crippled by a ‘victim’ mindset when faced by adversity in life, when a simple shift in thinking can inspire a ‘victory’ mindset instead. Life can be unpredictable but what matters is how we respond to so-called ‘failure’.
Rest assured I’m not your typical Everest speaker. Reaching the top of a mountain and placing a flag only tells half the story. I can take my audiences through the dark depths of depression to the elation of record-breaking endurance feats, showing how we can turn obstacles into an opportunity to win.
We all face challenges and fear of failure is widespread. That’s why my talks are equally at home in a senior management team as in a school. There is nothing more satisfying than giving others the inspiration and tools to break down the (usually self-imposed) barriers to achieve their own dreams and ultimately inspire others around them.
