We don’t always choose our challenges; we only choose our response
At just 23, Alex has experienced, learned, succeeded (and failed) enough to tell a compelling story of triumph over adversity that anyone can relate to, from young graduates to senior management teams. Alex is a refreshing and unique speaker delivering inspirational keynote presentations to businesses, teams, conferences, after-dinner, awards giving and school events.
Despite a lifelong stammer, he has already shared his experiences with over 15,000 people both in the UK and internationally.
Success means something different to everyone but reaching the top of a mountain only tells half the story. Alex takes audiences through the peaks and troughs of this gripping journey with humility and honesty to challenge their fear of failure and victim mindset: inspiring better choices towards adversity and to achieve their own ‘Everest’ in life.
“The universal feedback from all delegates was that the session was inspirational, stunning, awesome and engaging delivered by a stand-out speaker. We cannot underestimate the messages delivered or their embodiment in determination to continue in the face of setbacks”
Peter Batty, SASCAL Conference
