A Night In With Vanessa O'Brien
Join record-breaking mountain climber Vanessa O’Brien in-conversation as she marks the publication of To the Greatest Heights, which takes its readers on an extraordinary adventure around the world.
After being made redundant in 2008, a friend suggested Vanessa climb Everest. Little did she know that this was the start of an epic journey she would never look back from. In this special event, Vanessa will reveal her inspirational journey of starting life anew aged 46 to setting two Guinness World Records – the first in 2017 by climbing the highest peak on every continent in 295 days (the fastest time by a woman), and the second for becoming the first woman to reach the Earth’s highest and lowest points. Known for breaking boundaries and holding her own in the intensely competitive and male-dominated world of mountaineering, Vanessa continues to empower women around the world to defy what is expected of them and set their own course in life.
With heart and humour, Vanessa shares her motivational story, showing us that no matter our past, with strength and determination we can all reach the summit of our lives too, whatever our age. This promises to be a truly life-affirming evening.
