Follow Your Dreams

In this 'Follow Your Dreams' session, Ricky describes his incredible journey from a council estate in Glasgow to the top of the world on his successful ascent of the world's highest mountain - Mount Everest.

During that long journey, he faced and overcame adversity and mental health challenges - being arrested twice, dropping out of University twice, and being made redundant during his accountancy training. He bounced back from redundancy by completing the Marathon des Sables, a 150-mile ultramarathon in the Sahara desert known as the ‘toughest footrace on earth’. This experience transformed his mindset and gave him the confidence and determination to follow his own dreams.

Since qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 2005, he has worked in the private, public and third sectors, including six years deployed with the Red Cross & other aid organisations in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. From 2014 – 2018 he was the youngest ever member of the executive team at the UK’s national polar research organisation, before stepping down to climb Everest.

He shares learning points from turning back below the Death Zone on Everest in 2017, when he coordinated the evacuation of a seriously injured team-mate from Chinese Base Camp, and how he put these lessons into practice to make a successful summit attempt in 2018.

The key themes include perseverance, building resilience, goal-setting and overcoming adversity. PLEASE NOTE: This version of Ricky's talk is suitable for children aged 7+ and adults.

Format

Ricky's talk will last for 45-50 minutes, followed by an extended Q&A session of 25-30 minutes where you & your kids can interact with Ricky & ask him literally anything!
