Inspire Alpine® founder and Everest Summiter Ricky Munday offers free or subsidised inspirational talks to schools and other youth organisations to help raise aspirations and develop resilience, to help address this attainment gap.

The key themes include perseverance, building resilience, goal-setting and overcoming adversity. Ricky can edit this for speaking slots from 30 – 60 minutes, which will include time for Q&A if the schedule allows, and he displays a selection of high-altitude clothing & equipment.
