Having the personal courage to take action can be very challenging when you fear the unknown. However, sometimes we don’t put our next steps into perspective. Nigel Vardy’s story can help. Nigel is a mountaineer, motivational speaker and author.

Today, he defies logic and is still climbing even achieving a British first climbing the highest peaks on the world’s seven largest islands despite his injuries and a fear for heights. Join us to find out more about Nigel's story and his views on courage and overcoming the fear barrier and the many lessons he has learned during his inspirational career.
