Red Talks: extreme adventures with Rachel

Behind every great story about human adversity there is a great storyteller

Prepare to be inspired and join us for our first ever Red Talk featuring Rachel Colenso, expedition leader and motivational speaker.

Rachel believes wholeheartedly that people can achieve the seemingly impossible, if they put their mind to it.  She is one of the most extraordinary women adventurers in the world with experiences ranging from climbing and adventure racing to organising expeditions to jungle, desert and snowy regions.

Rachel is South Africa’s first and currently only certified female mountain guide. She is also one of only a handful of women to go through a specialist rigorous training scheme within the British Army.

After a near-death experience in the Swiss Alps in 2003, Rachel has spent much of her time raising money for the British Red Cross disaster fund. She has written a book ‘In a High and Desperate Place’ about her experiences.
In 2015 Rachel raised over £3,000 climbing Monte Rosa, first summited by the co-founder of the International Red Cross, Guillaume-Henri Dufour.
