Universities

I am a social entrepreneur, mental health charity founder, award winning global adventurer, fundraiser, author and inspirational speaker. From attempting suicide twice to running 401 marathons in 401 days, we challenge you not to find something in my life story that isn’t relatable.

As a speaker, I am extremely open and honest and my story is one of genuine courage and determination.

The way I tell my story brings to life the importance of accepting and respecting others no matter who they are, understanding that having resilience and persistence is key to overcoming tough times in your life and ultimately believing that the limitations we think we have are only in our own thoughts.
