Bonita Norris is the youngest person ever to reach both “tops of the world”- the summit of Mount Everest and the North Pole. Over the years she has completed many expeditions, often as the youngest female, she is the only the third British woman to climb Mt Lhotse for example, the world’s 4th highest peak.
Bonita has been on 8 expeditions, including K2, Lhotse, Manaslu and Everest. Bonita has skied to the North Pole, co-lead charity teams on Kilimanjaro and climbed Ama Dablam in the Himalayas, described as the world’s most beautiful mountain.
Through her journey from beginner climber to high altitude mountaineer, Bonita learnt the importance of success by smallness; if you want to climb the world’s highest peaks, you have to focus not fret; focus on what you can control- the small things, and do the small things well.
Bonita now speaks internationally for the world’s largest corporations. Her keynote is called Mountains of the Mind and through sharing her message of success by smallness, she covers topics such as courage, resilience and mindset.
Bonita grew up in Wokingham, where the highest point is barely above sea level. It wasn't until she was 20 years old and at university that she went to a lecture about Mt Everest. Spellbound and inspired, she knew in that moment she wanted to become a mountaineer, despite never having climbed before.
Bonita has worked time and time again with clients who have seen first hand the impact of her inspiring keynote on their workforce. Recent clients include Microsoft, Google, JP Morgan, the MOD, Dyson, Virgin O2, Rolex and the Mercedes AMG F1 team.
