Speaker

Sharing my experiences of long distance hiking, the highs, the lows and why I walk is both rewarding and exhilarating for me.  I have been described as having a ‘storytelling quality’ to my approach and have experience of speaking in front of a multitude of small and large audiences and of differing age ranges.  Following the presentation which can be as short as ten minutes, many questions are often raised, such as: “what do you eat?”, “how do you decide what to carry for six weeks away?”, “where do you sleep?”, “why do you go alone?”, “have you ever been scared?”  Time is allocated for dialogue around these topics following every event.

Humorous anecdotes of personal encounters are woven into messages of resilience, self-belief and a have-a-go attitude, which will leave listeners returning home with a feeling of ‘perhaps I can’, instead of ‘I never could’.

Customising my delivery to the age group of the audience is a speciality and I would be happy to discuss any specific requirements you may have.
