Are your team stuck at base camp?
COVID-19 has fuelled a perfect storm with uncertainty and adversity leaving many individuals stuck in survival mode.
Albeit only 25 years old, Alex knows a thing or two about overcoming adversity, having survived the two consecutive biggest disasters in Mount Everest history as a teenager. Alex shares his expertise with inspirational presentations and keynotes, live and virtually, to organisations, conferences and events across the UK and Europe.
Success has a different definition to everyone, but reaching the summit only tells half the story. He has already experienced, learned, succeeded (and ‘failed’) enough to share a compelling journey of resilience and overcoming adversity to inspire businesses to achieve their own Everest. Being a lifelong stammerer is only testament to his message of defying barriers to reach our highest potential.
Whether delivered as live events, hybrid or virtually, Alex takes audiences through the process of peaks and troughs to re-define success and achieve their full potential.
Have your team got the tools to manage their mountain?
Alex’s sessions confront common challenges, including:
- Developing resilience through adversity
- Re-defining success and overcoming fear of failure
- Facilitating positive mental well-being in the workplace
- Moving forwards through change and uncertainty
Example keynote titles include:
- Achieving our Everest: why staying at base camp kills our potential
- What’s in your Rucksack? Climbing the mountain of mental health
- Re-defining Success: owning the process, not the summit
Alex can especially relate to millennials and what motivates them in the workplace.

Why book Alex?
“Sometimes the approach to mental health within organisations as big and cumbersome as ours can feel a bit of a tick box, superficial exercise, but your sessions felt very different, very real, very humble and very authentic. In my view, you will have made a difference that is much bigger than you may think or ever know” – Chris Mead, Chief Supt. Cambridgeshire Police“We have invited Alex to speak to our managers at our Open Leadership programmes on numerous occasions.
