PRESENTATIONS:

Rachel has an impressive list of clients who have endorsed her public speaking, as well as her adventurous expeditions to promote eco tourism and sustainable development. Rachel is well informed and articulate, having run her own business alongside competing at international level in extreme sports events.

Rachel Colenso has led numerous expeditions to jungle, desert and snowy regions around the globe. In October 2003 Rachel hit world headlines when she was stranded on a sheer face at 3000m during an extreme blizzard in the Swiss Alps.

After two nights on a tiny ledge with 1000 metre drops each side she was evacuated by helicopter. Her inspiring book, ‘In a High and Desperate Place’ also provides useful information for business or life on how to survive and succeed in times of extreme adversity.

Her account of this experience has people on the edges of their seats, and thinking for a long time afterwards about how they can deal with situations in their own lives. Rachel’s background of guiding in mountains and jungle environments enables her to be at ease talking to corporate audiences, at charity and celebratory functions and to school children alike.

One of her greatest achievements must be in making people aware of what can be accomplished despite unforeseen events, or plans that don’t run smoothly. Rachel inspires her business audiences to excel despite tight deadlines and demanding situations.
