Polar adventurer, three times Guinness World Record holder, mountain climber, marathon runner, author, businesswoman and just a ‘normal’ person – Victoria Humphries prides herself on being just your average woman who happens to believe that Anything is Possible if you put your to mind to it. What’s the worst that can happen? Just give it a go!
I have been spreading my 'message' via motivational talks to both businesses and schools for many years! I passionately believe that we need to recognise that we live in a ‘non-linear’ world; one where there will be constant change, we will fall over, we will need to change direction and there will be many times where we don’t know all the answers - but that doesn't matter. Its all about taking everything one step at a time.
My talks are always jargon free. I am not formally qualified in resilience or change management however I have lived life and have so many experiences and adventures to call upon that my message is passed on via real life examples and as a result it can often have far more impact.
As well as taking part in various adventures and challenges I have been a primary school teacher, worked in a variety of businesses and for the last 14 years I've worked in and then led a successful EdTech business. During my time at Teachit I led it through two acquisitions, two restructures and the rapid pivoting of the business model as a result of Covid-19.
To celebrate being 50 and to raise money for four fantastic charities I am currently embarking on [email protected] – 50 different challenges; some physical, some out of comfort zone and some learning new things – www.50at50.org.uk.
