Chemmy Alcott

Britain's Greatest Ever Female Skier

Public Speaking

Throughout her skiing career, Chemmy was renowned for pushing herself to her physical and mental limits and this has not changed since her retirement. Since competing, Chemmy has competed in some of the toughest physical challenges in the world, including the World’s toughest Ski Race in Greenland, the 100-mile road race in London and climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. All in all, raising over £800,000 for charity and setting 3 Guinness World Records.

Her desire to succeed and push herself was something she learnt through the adversity she suffered throughout her life. Having broken 49 broken bones, including her neck aged 11 and her leg (which required over 1028 minutes of surgery), Chemmy’s story is incredibly inspiring and unique. She has spoken at high profile venues such as the Oxford Union Chamber and you too can listen to her incredible journey to the top, as she is available to host events and give talks throughout the year.
