Record-breaking British polar explorer and adventurer, keynote speaker and business coach Adrian Hayes presents the powerful story of his 2013 tragic failure and 2014 stunning success summiting the world's second highest mountain, the notorious K2, located on the Pakistan/China border.

Accompanied by stunning pictures and film, he will discuss the realities of attempting what is widely regarded as the hardest and most dangerous mountain to climb - one that has been summited by just 330 climbers including only 7 Britons in the 60 years prior to 2014. Adrian, a professional leadership, teach and executive coach, will also discuss some key lessons on risk, presence, gut instinct and real teamwork.

Running time approximately 85 minutes, no interval
Suitable for ages 16+ years
