Sir Chris Bonington made the first British ascent of the North Wall of the Eiger and led the expedition that made the first ascent of the South Face of Annapurna, the biggest and most difficult climb in the Himalayas at the time. He went on to lead the successful expedition making the first ascent of the South West Face of Everest in 1975 and then reached the summit of Everest himself in 1985 with a Norwegian expedition. He is still active in mountain climbing with the same enthusiasm as he had at the beginning.

A former British Army officer, he has written 17 books, fronted numerous television programmes and has lectured to the public and corporate audiences all over the world. He received a knighthood in 1996 for services to mountaineering, was president of the Council for National Parks for 8 years and is the Non-Executive Chairman of Berghaus and Chancellor of Lancaster University. Sir Chris will be happy to answer questions in the areas of leadership, particularly in corporate environments, the importance of team building, his climbing experience and adventurous expeditions.
