Stephen Venables is an Internationally acclaimed mountaineer, writer and broadcaster and the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. Climbing with a small American-Canadian team on a pioneering new route up the gigantic Kangshung Face, Stephen reached the summit alone after his three team mates were forced to retreat.

The stories of his adventures have enthralled his audiences at corporate events, theatres, schools and university clubs all over the world. His presentations are gripping, fast paced narratives focusing on the group dynamics, motivation and strategic planning required to plan and carry out a successful expedition. He is extremely adept at applying his experiences from mountaineering to a business framework and is a highly sought after speaker.

A real inspiration... His presentation will be remembered for a long time.
