“Mollie was guest speaker at the Dorset Expeditionary Society Christmas Ball. She gave an incredibly moving, self-effacing, inspirational and often humorous account of her experiences climbing Everest. As a member herself of the DES, her speech, as a consequence, had an even greater effect upon the audience. Both young and “more mature” members were spellbound by her very human story. This was one person’s determination to leap over every conceivable hurdle placed in her path from fund raising to surviving in the “death zone” on Everest. Mollie made the evening and raised the bar for so many of our young adventurers.”

Clive Burgess Co-founder, Dorset Expeditionary Society.

“Mollie came to speak to year 12 and 13 students at Feltham Community College. She was incredibly interesting and engaging, the students were very inspired by her story. Mollie’s presentation worked because she covered new ground, she had original ideas about what was needed to be successful including the way that you deal with fear. This gave students a new perspective and they have been able to reflect on this in form time. Thanks Mollie for sharing your wonderful experience with us.”

“It was an absolute pleasure hearing you speak about your experiences and absolutely amazing to see how much determination you have, and that you made your dreams possible. As a student, I can safely tell you that you have reignited the drive I once had and have proved to me that anything is possible. For that I would like to thank you, and I hope that you will visit us again sometime soon.”

“Mollie was our Guest of Honour at our annual Speech Day at which we have over 1300 people in the City Hall. Mollie was quite brilliant. She mesmerised her audience with her remarkable story and has all of us willing her on for her next Everest Challenge. Aided by a wonderful set of images and videos, Mollie gave a clear description of the challenges she faced on summiting Everest. At the Reception afterwards she was mobbed by the young and the old, all wanting to thank her for her outstanding talk. I would recommend her unreservedly.”

Through Mollie’s presentation students will explore her journey to get to the top of the world and find out just what it takes to complete such a challenge. Areas such as: Self-Belief, Goal Setting, Controlling Fear, Respect, and most importantly Determination and Perseverance will be examined.

Students will establish not only the importance of these qualities, but also an understanding that they themselves can develop them and energetically tackle the challenges in their own lives.
