Rebecca Stephens MBE
Rebecca Stephens is the first British woman to have climbed Everest and the first English speaking woman in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, the so-called Seven Summits.
as a journalist, today she writes, contributing articles to a number of
newspapers, and, most important, she lectures, drawing on her
experiences and delivering inspirational keynote addresses and master
classes to business audiences around the world. For each talk, Rebecca
talks extensively to the client to establish their exact needs.
Sometimes it will be simply to tell her story as it is and at other
times a light-hearted address for after dinner. But most often it will
be to share lessons drawn from her experience – about self-motivation,
teamwork, leadership, and communication skills – pointing the way for
all of us to achieve more than we could have imagined possible, both as
individuals and as working teams. She is a regular guest lecturer on
leadership at Ashridge Management Centre, and has shared a stage
alongside President Bill Clinton.
Rebecca has appeared as a regular presenter on Tomorrow’s World and a science series for BBC TV’s Science Zone. Her books include an ascent of Everest, ‘On Top of the World’, a children’s book entitled ‘Everest’, published by Dorling Kindersley, and more recently ‘Seven Summits of Success’, co-written with business guru, Robert Heller.
She is a trustee for Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Alpine Club. She also regularly returns to the Himalayas leading treks.
