Blind Adventurer and international Motivational Speaker Miles Hilton-Barber is one of the most widely sought-after motivational speakers on the world circuit today, having had the privilege of speaking at over 1,000 corporate events in 69 countries around the world to date.
Despite losing his sight in his early twenties, his quality of life and level of success was radically transformed at the age of 50, not through sight restoration, but through changing his attitude to his blindness.
Since the age of 50 Miles has set numerous world records undertaking extreme endurance events across all seven continents of our world, in the fields of mountaineering, desert and polar ultra-marathons, power-boat racing, scuba-diving, motor-racing and long distance, aerobatic and supersonic flying amongst other achievements.
His presentations outline a radical yet simple set of life principles that will enable businesses and individuals to become more successful today, despite facing unprecedented global change. These principles are wrapped up in a fast-moving, colourful and humorous presentation, with photos and video clips from his many expeditions and adventures.
He will challenge you to look again at who you are, and how you can achieve so much more than you think you can in both your professional and personal life, because “the only limits in your life are those you accept yourself.”
“Miles is an extraordinary speaker. Our event was for sales and service directors, who go to a lot of networking events and have extremely high standards. Miles had them belly laughing one minute, then almost in tears the next…”
“I can’t even imagine the difficulties of travelling in polar regions without being able to see things. I once was semi-blind in the Arctic and everything became doubly problematic. Total blindness would have been nightmarish. My admiration for Miles is enormous.”
“Miles Hilton-Barber offers a truly inspirational insight into his amazing adventures. He demonstrates, in his presentation, the energy that has driven him to achieve so much. In listening to Miles you are forced to consider the limits you have set on yourself, and to search your mind and soul as to what you could potentially achieve.”
“I have never seen anyone get a standing ovation at a European Venture Capital conference before. Miles was outstanding at our Stockholm conference…”
“Miles was outstanding. He inspired, made us laugh and even brought a tear to people’s eyes. Our group is hard to impress yet he got a standing ovation.”
