The New Zealand Society in association with Kea are delighted to invite you to join us for a night with New Zealander, Mark Inglis.
“Imagine, you are 23 years old, trapped in an ice cave for 14 days by a sub-zero blizzard on the summit of New Zealands highest peak. You are starving and freezing to death. You wake up in hospital to find that you have lost both legs below the knees due to frostbite. What do you do next? If you are Mark Inglis, you climb Mount Everest, of course.”
Thursday 23rd October 2014 - 6.30PM to 9PM
New Zealand House Penthouse, 80 Haymarket, London SW1Y 4TQ
NZ Society Members £30.00 Non-Members £35.00
Ticket includes canapés and drinks
(welcome drinks from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, followed by presentation by Mark Inglis)
Between losing his legs at 23 years old due to frostbite and then going on to be the only double amputee to have stood on the roof of the world, the summit of Mount Everest, Mark has carved out careers as a scientist, a world recognised winemaker, business innovator, a Paralympics’ athlete, trekking guide, philanthropist and a leading International Motivator.
It is this combination of achievement in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds, his business acumen and his ability to interpret this to a wide range of people results in the regular opportunity to share his experience and philosophy with world leaders.
Founding Trustee of Limbs4All Charitable Trust, patron of many charities and author of 5 books (2 for youth, both finalists in The NZ Book of the Year Awards) Mark was recently awarded both a doctorate (honoris causa) and also the Fervent Love Of Lives Medal.
Over the last 10 years Mark has presented to over one hundred thousand youth and tens of thousands of corporate employees and clients across the world, inspiring them to embrace challenge, to develop the attitude to excel and leaving audiences spellbound with his inspirational, motivational, interactive story sessions.
It is this combination of achievement in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds and his ability to interpret this to a wide range of people resulted in the honour of being both a delegate and panelist at the UN partnered 2009 Global Creative Leadership Summit in New York, an opportunity to share his experience and philosophy with world leaders.
Join us for a night with one of New Zealand's inspiring sons, in the superb setting of the New Zealand High Commission Penthouse.
Proudly brought to you by The New Zealand Society and Kea
