Speakers Profile - Brigitte Muir

Regional Victoria

Fee Range: E

Brigitte Muir is the first Australian woman to have climbed Mount Everest and the first Australian, male or female, to have climbed the highest mountain on each continent. Her nine year long quest, which included four dramatic attempts on Mount Everest, gives her a unique insight on achieving long term goals, on maintaining personal motivation and on the most important skill needed when working with people: communication!

Rare footage from the top of the world, stunning pictures, her passionate personality and honesty make for powerful presentations which inspire audiences to climb the mountains in their lives.

Her key points are illustrated by striking stories such as being abandoned by her team near the top of Everest, the 1996 disaster where eleven people died in a single night and what challenges await after you have climbed the highest of all mountains.

Brigitte makes a genuine connection with people, engages them and gives them a real sense of the journey, be it in business, at school, or in life. Her willingness to talk with participants after presentations allows them to absorb some of her determination and passion into their own goal setting and ways of acting.

Her amazing life from her native Belgium to the top of the world featured in 'The Eighth summit' a television documentary screened in Australia last year and currently being sold around the world.

Brigitte's riveting autobiography The Wind in My Hair is a tale of true heroism, courage and an unconquerable determination.
