In April 2018, top mountaineer Kenton Cool led seasoned adventurer Ben Fogle in an exhausting challenge to climb Everest, raising funds for the British Red Cross.
The expedition saw them pushed to their limits, with Ben’s oxygen supplies failing twice in the notorious Death Zone and Kenton sacrificing his own supply to help Ben to the top. They’ll share their experiences of team building, leadership, decision making, motivation and facing personal fears under pressure.
Ben and Kenton will explore the importance of mental strength when in pursuit of your goals. They will reveal how a combination of team strengths, personal motivation and self-belief can create the winning formula to success.
Kenton Cool is one of the finest alpine climbers of his generation. His accomplishments are staggering. He has summited Everest thirteen times. He is the first person in history to climb the three Everest peaks, the so-called Triple Crown, in one climb, a feat previously thought impossible. His accomplishments are all the more extraordinary considering he shattered both his heel bones while climbing in 1996 and was initially told he would never walk unaided again. His book, One Man’s Everest explains why he still has the energy and desire for more adventure.
Ben Fogle is an award-winning broadcaster and adventurer. Ben has climbed Mount Everest, rowed across the Atlantic, raced across Antarctica to the South Pole and crossed the deserts of the Empty Quarter in the Middle East. Ben has also run the Marathon des Sables, and swam from Alcatraz to San Francisco. Ben’s latest book is Up: My life journey to the top of Everest.
