---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Holly Budge is a British adventurer, mountaineer and public speaker, having just returned from the roof of the world, successfully summiting Everest on May 22nd 2017. She documented her entire expedition on social media, using hashtag #everesteveryday, giving an intimate insight into the world of big mountain climbing and posted a photo directly from the summit.

Her passion for adventure is evident with two world records under her belt so far, including being the first woman to skydive Everest and on another expedition, raced semi-wild horses 1000 kms across Mongolia in just 9 days. She works as a big mountain expedition leader and last year successfully led the ‘Summit Climb 2016 Expedition’ on the technical Ama Dablam (6812m), Nepal. She is leading this expedition again this October. Other climbing achievements include summiting Cho-Oyu (8201m), Baruntse (7129m) and snowboarding from the summit of Mera Peak (6476m) in Nepal. More recently, she made a successful first ascent in the Mongolian Altai Mountains. Holly has raised over £300k for a diverse range of charities through her adventures, including for her own award-winning charity ‘How Many Elephants’.

Holly feels strongly about the capability, yet lack of women on the mountains. It is statistically a male-dominated arena and Holly is only too happy to champion the endurance potential of women. The higher the mountains go, generally the less women that are on them. Her vision is to empower and motivate others to daydream, meander, run, climb and jump into their own adventures of self-discovery, and in doing so, learn that with self-belief, determination and resilience, even the biggest of challenges can be overcome. Holly is an energetic and engaging motivational speaker who talks passionately about her diverse achievements in the outdoors. Her message is simple: Think Big, Dream Bigger.


What others say:

"She’s an immensely enthusiastic speaker and her talks have always been well illustrated, informative and funny. I recommend her highly!" Dick Willis - The Wilderness Lectures

"Polished and professional, and I loved the crazy mix of three totally different genres of adventure. Not easy, but you did it well." Alastair Humphries - Night Of Adventure

“Holly is a breath of fresh air. She will surprise and inspire you but will also make you laugh. Most importantly you’ll be reminded that it doesn’t take superhumans to do extraordinary things, it just takes women like Holly who have serious amounts of determination and humour.” Belinda Kirk - Explorers Connect

"A talented public speaker, who generously shares her experiences of fearless challenges and environmental campaigns. Holly is awesome, in the truest sense of the word." Zara Wood - Pecha Kucha Brighton
