Exciting mystery host to be announced...
And here's who speaking!
Sledging across Antarctica, running ultra-marathons through the Sahara and climbing 17, 500 feet into the Himalayas are just the tip of the iceberg with Miles Hilton-Barber. The adrenalin junkie leaves no stone unturned and no mountain unclimbed.
And did we mention that he lost his sight in his early 20s?
A champion of not letting the past determine your future, Miles’s stirring story helps us all to recognise the fragility of life as we know it. Poignant and heartfelt, Miles’s ability to overcome adversity is positively infectious, spurring any individual to dream big and conquer their own mountain peaks.
After being diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of 3, Liz Johnson was introduced to swimming to help with her neurological condition. Falling in love with the sport, at just 14 she rose to a national level and by 2008 she had fulfilled a lifetime ambition of becoming a Paralympic champion, despite her mother passing away during the Games.
With a home medal under her belt from the 2012 Games, a spot as a Paralympic pundit in Rio 2016, and not to mention an accounting degree, Liz’s unstoppable enthusiasm, energy and resilience is undeniably inspirational.
Cathy O’Dowd was the world’s first woman to climb Mount Everest from both the North and South sides. Despite surviving life threatening storms, treacherous avalanches and critical food shortages, Cathy maintains that the biggest challenge to any mountaineer is team communication.
An expert in self-motivation and challenge accomplishment, Cathy’s incredible tale of leadership and risk assessment leaves her audience on the edge of their seats, as she draws comparisons between the soaring peaks of Everest and the sky-scrapers of the corporate world.
