Speaking at the Saltash.net I delivered five sessions to pupils throughout the day on Strength In Adversity. The problems I have faced and how I have overcome them throughout my 7 Summits Challenge. I covered topics on motivation, perseverance, determination, desire and confidence. Showing equipment helped with the appreciation of what it was like in hostile climates. This was to name but a few because it is such a broad subject to cover in only an hour with many questions being asked. PPE – Personal, Protective, Equipment is a personal favourite of mine because it is what I use in my everyday working life as a postman. Planning, Preparation, Execution my own formula used to great effect in the 7 Summits.
During the day my sessions were well attended with pupils filling the classroom (some twice)!! One pupil in year 11 said it was, “the best part of the day.” Another was studiously taking notes down.
