Bonita Norris made headlines in 2010 when she reached the summit of Mount Everest, she was 22 years old, and had become the youngest British female to reach the top of the world.

Bonita has climbed the world’s highest mountains, including Mt Everest, and skied to the North pole. She has led teams on Kilimanjaro and has broken mountaineering records, in 2012 she became the first British woman to ever climb the world’s 4th highest peak, Mt Lhotse; considered a technically much more difficult climb than Everest.

Bonita is one of the UK’s most sought after motivational speakers , She has given hundreds of talks to many of the UK and Europe’s top business and schools.

Bonita has been empowering her audiences with a story of overcoming great odds, and with humorous anecdotes she explains she is no different and no more capable than anyone else- she just worked hard and didn't give up.

Bonita starts her talk as a novice climber who had a seemingly impossible goal. Bonita explains she was an "ordinary girl from Wokingham" who taught herself to climb, saved every penny she had to pay for equipment, and had to overcome a great amount of prejudice for being a novice with a big goal. All this before she even set foot on Everest!

During presentations, Bonita shares what she learnt about goal setting, how to manage intimidating tasks, and the importance of three life skills: seizing opportunities, working hard, and believing that we are all capable of taking one step at a time towards our goals.
