Featured Testimonials

Featured Showreel

Everest avalanche survivor, Record-breaking adventurer, motivational speaker and mental health charity founder – helping teams build the resilience to embrace challenges and achieve their peak.

At the age of 26 he has already attempted Mount Everest twice – but Alex is not your typical Everest speaker. After climbing Mont Blanc at 17 and single-handedly raising over £35,000 in corporate sponsorship whilst still at school, his first attempt to climb to the summit of Mount Everest in 2014 was abandoned following a tragic avalanche that took sixteen lives. Aged just 19, he returned a year later and survived an avalanche in the Khumbu Icefall, triggered by the Nepal earthquake, which trapped his team on the mountain for two days.

Alex combines high achievement with a humbling vulnerability in the typically invulnerable world of adventure and sport, so others can connect at a human level with their own daily challenges; whatever the context.

Booking an amazing speaker for primary-age children across several schools was made easy by Inspirational Speakers. The service from this company was excellent. A swift response to an initial expression of interest and then a pro-active approach to the booking, resulted in brilliant visits to schools by Alistair Patrick-Heselton, who was absolutely inspirational. I would highly recommend this company and Alistair!

I used Inspirational Speakers to book a talk at work for World Mental Health Day- and it was a really easy experience from start to finish. Chelsea was really helpful in answering my questions, and the feedback we got on the actual event was fantastic. We used James Withey, and would really recommend him if you're looking for a speaker on this topic. Thank you!
