Ellis Stewart

Ellis J Stewart became an unlikely inspiration to thousands of followers on social media when in 2014 and again in 2015 he witnessed and survived the two worst disasters in the history of Mount Everest climbing whilst attempting to reach the summit of the mountain himself.

Nobody could have anticipated that Ellis Stewart  would have the rug pulled out from beneath his feet, not once but twice in back to back attempts. Ellis Stewart’s resolve and sheer determination to reach the mountain in the first place was without a doubt a feat in itself. Having dreamed about climbing the mountain for 30 years he finally got the chance in 2014, after a life of preparation and a never give in mentality.  The events that followed were unparalleled in Everest mountaineering.

Having dreamed about climbing the mountain for twenty years plus he has never let go of that goal. Through the steps he has taken and the entrepreneurial spirit displayed he has been able to almost entirely fund the $100,000 that the two attempts so far have cost without corporate assistance. Ellis plans to return to the mountain for a third attempt.

Although being just a regular guy trying to climb the mountain, Ellis accidentally became a public speaker after being invited to share his dream with local community groups. This snowballed and before long Ellis was speaking in front of up to 250 guests at corporate events across the whole of the UK. His inspirational story and appeal is universal. He has motivated and inspired everyone from primary school children, a packed conference full of accountants, to a large group of octogenarians.

Its not about the end result, it’s the journey that counts and shapes us.

In July 2016 Ellis was presented to HRH Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh at Holyrood Palace after
being invited to present Gold Awards to a group of young people from Cumbria. The Duke asked Ellis
if he had reached the summit. Ellis replied that he hadn’t due to avalanches and earthquakes. “Far
better story anyway” said Prince Phillip as he strode off.
