Pauline Sanderson is a highly regarded adventurer and motivational speaker, she was the first person in the world to do the world’s longest climb, resulting in a Guinness World Record.
The EVERESTMAX journey had to deal with every team challenge you could throw at it. The teamwork was the reason it was a success. Pauline will draw on the many experiences to explain how and why their team managed an array of difficult situations such as people dynamics, constant change in logistics, adversity of weather, riots, bureaucratic obstacles, threats, personal and team esteem and of course physical endurance. Pauline puts the secret of their success down to ‘lots and lots of laughter, positive attitude and belief in the goal’. The group successfully completed The Longest Climb, resulting in a Guinness World Record, and Pauline and her husband made a British record for the first British married couple to summit Everest.
