Peter Hillary

Your audience will feel transported into a world of high adventure.  Peter delivers an inspiring message through a selection of extraordinary expeditionary yarns and identifies key attributes that are needed for success.  He examines setbacks and failures too and the lessons learned from these.  All this, delivered with his trademark dry wit and self-effacing candour.

Peter's first summit of Everest in 1990 meant the Hillarys became the "first family" of Himalayan mountaineering with two generations of Everest climbers. They are also the first two generations of one family to have each established new routes across Antarctica to the South Pole. Peter reached the South Pole in 1999, and climbed Mt Everest for the second time in 2002 in celebration of his father's historic first ascent with Tenzing Norgay.
