Twentieth Anniversary Special!!


2017 marks the twentieth anniversary of my becoming the first Australian woman to climb Mount Everest, as well as the first Australian to climb the highest mountain on each continent.

I learned many lessons in climbing mountains, such as the importance of communication, integrity, the ability to think from the heart, planning, developing the mental strength and discipline to successfully face enormous challenges and many more!

All valuable skills that will assist your staff, your students or members with the business of life, as well as inspire them to find and follow their dreams.

I am passionate about encouraging people of all age to extend themselves beyond their comfort zone and to reach the peak of their own personal mountain: to live their dream.

There are several ways I can deliver the message:

  • at your school, or chosen venue, as keynote speaker to assembly, or selected audience.
  • as keynote speaker in Natimuk at the end of the day’s climbing at Mount Arapiles. Presentation similar to that offered at your location, at a fraction of the price.
  • as a climbing instructor assistant in top roping and abseiling at Mount Arapiles, with informal questions and answers with students throughout the day, through a local ACIA approved climbing school. Current instructor fees apply.
  • As leader of a community building trek in Solu (Nepal) visiting the school and villages of the Gyamdanda Community Forest, interacting with school kids, women and villagers in their home environment.

I am of course happy to discuss any other possibilities with you.  Contact me to discuss your requirements

With love and respect,

Brigitte Muir OAM ( Order of Australia Medal)


Brigitte Koch-Muir OAM summitted Everest in 1997, on her fourth attempt. Storms, spending the night out at 8500m without light or oxygen, and being caught in the 1996 disaster on the South Col of Everest are some of the challenges she faced before eventually summitting. She was a high altitude expedition climber, and leader, for almost thirty years. She is also a story teller, and belongs to the Beyond the Smile Friendily, and the SEED Alliances, a network of people excited by the idea of changing the world by implementing a business model based on collaboration, and having fun doing it.

  1. Brigitte — Congratulations on the 20 years. It hardly seems possible! It’s wonderful that you can share the experience and lessons with others. I remember your presentation in Horsham at WOFG and that must have been soon after you’d summited! I think your perspective now would be a different one — richer and more self-aware. Love your work.
