Squash is as passionate about sharing her adventures as she is in undertaking them.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to actually get to the top of the world? Through Squash’s unique take on the world, her life experiences and incredible expeditions, she will explain how she did just that and share with you the importance of not only having dreams, but daring to realise them too.
Squash’s bespoke presentations will ignite an energy inside her audiences that perhaps they didn’t realise was bursting to get out and get used. We all have our own personal goals and challenges; physical, mental, emotional or a combination of all three and the way we tackle them can determine their success or failure. Illustrating her own personal journeys through her adventures, the audience begins to realise failure might not be a bad thing after all and that the path to success isn’t as obvious or as impossible as they thought.
A renowned, well-respected and entertaining speaker, Squash is happy to present to audiences of any size, age, demographic and background.
Through the use of her amazing films and photographs, accompanied by a narrative of fascinating and humorous stories and, her unique philosophies on life, Squash will tailor her talk to suit any audience for any occasion.
Squash aims to entertain, motivate, inspire and most importantly provide her audiences with an insight into their own dreams and to realise that wonderful, powerful potential that’s inside every one of us.

Drawing parallels between the world of business and the worlds of mountain climbing and sport Squash, demonstrates the importance of goal setting, decision making, leadership and team work. The right team and decisions on a mountain will save your life; the right team and decision-making made on a project can prove the difference between success and failure. What defines success anyway, getting to the summit or getting back down alive? In business, often tough decisions pay off.
Through her presentation and talk, Squash will draw parallels between achieving her goals through meticulous preparation, planning, teamwork and execution in some of the most inhospitable and challenging environments in the world and how business objectives can be achieved and surpassed in the same way.
Squash is a natural storyteller, using gripping real-life stories, anecdotes and humour to engage her audience. Squash will provide an insight to a world that will inspire the audience – challenging them to consider living their dreams and to seize opportunities they may otherwise not take. Happy to answer questions and provide further detail on content. She will also tailor her speech to make it more specific to each audience.
Imagine if, when you were younger, someone told you anything was possible and then actually demonstrated to you that anything WAS possible. For young people, this kind of example and positivity can have a huge impact. Squash’s talk begins when she was little, when she was at school. By beginning from the same starting point as those listening, Squash is instantly on the same wavelength as her audience and then goes onto show them an exciting world of opportunity that isn’t exactly ‘text book’, proving that anything is possible and inspiring each individual to follow their dreams.
Paragliding, mountaineering , cycling, skiing – whatever your sport is - exactly how do you get to the top of your game? Do you even want to? Maybe you just want to try something new or hear about other sporting adventures. You might not be the strongest or the fittest but that isn’t always the most important element. Demonstrating that mental strength plays just as big a part as physical strength. Your own experiences may resonate with Squash’s and if you find yourself wanting to go further, you’ll realise you can.

“We were delighted that Squash was able to be guest speaker at our Speech Day. Professional, confident and engaging throughout the process, from our initial exploratory meeting through to the final speech itself, Squash fitted the bill perfectly. Most importantly, she related extremely well to the pupils, regaling them with exciting tales of derring-do and giving them the simple but very effective message that if you believe in yourself, give of your very best, you’ll come out on top, achieving your dreams.”

Stephen Rathbone, Academic Director, Radley College
“Squash grips the attention of the audience with her fearless and bold vision. This is that we are all far more capable of achieving great things than most of us ever dare to imagine. Her inspiring and incredibly energetic talk lifts the spirit, challenging us to defeat pessimism and low aim. The sight of her paragliding off Mount Blanc after a gruelling climb leaves us wowed. This is a great lecture indeed.”
George Kalorkoti, Liveryman, Worshipful Company of Information Technologists
“Squash’s presentations to some 500 year 7 and 8 pupils at two inner city London schools held them enthralled from beginning to end. Feedback form the schools included 'The impact of Squash’s speech has been amazing. It has really inspired our students and has been talked about all week' and 'I have spoken to many staff and students since, and the feedback has all been amazingly and unanimously positive'.”
Simon, Jagged Globe
