Alex Harris

NEWSFLASH: In 2011 Alex won the 2011 Freedom Challenge Race Across South Africa in a record time of 12 days and 15 hours. The FC is arguably Africa’s hardest mountain bike race covering a distance of 2300kms, and traversing the high mountains between Pietermaritzburg and Paarl. It is also totally unsupported.

On Thursday 17 January 2008 Alex Harris and his partner Sibusiso Vilane were the first South Africans to complete an unsupported and unassisted walk from Hercules Inlet, on the edge of Antarctica, to the Geographic South Pole. They walked 1113 km in 65 days in temperatures ranging between -8°C and -40°C, dragging their 130kg supply sleds all the way. The men walked through a 10-day “white-out” during which it snowed continually.

Alex's new talk, "The Long White Night", focuses on this immense achievement.

Alex uses his fourteen years of experience as a mountaineer and expedition leader to give us insight into how we can overcome our personal challenges, especially the “Big One”.

Alex’s presentations draw parallels between teamwork, co-operation and self-motivation to achieve goals in both one’s personal and business life. The presentations are coupled with fantastic music and awesome visuals.

What our clients say ...

"Showed us that we are much stronger than we think we are, both in body and in mind."

"Fabulous. In the theme of the conference and such challenging times to remember not to give in but to do what you need to do and to believe in the impossible, but to take and make great decisions with small steps without losing courage, and understanding that great is by wise and courageous choice. Great is there for everyone with the courage and effort and not reserved for only a few."

"I was sitting there watching him, looking at the video, watching him and freezing at the same time. I couldn't believe anyone would do what he did, but then again he had support, he had Sibu. It shows that when you have a good and strong support system, anything is possible."

"Wow!! An eye opener!"

"Mark my words, impossible should be scratched from all our dictionaries."

"Great story and true spirit for SA."

Various comments from Harcourts Real Estate Conference 2012

"What a wonderful and encouraging presentation. Our theme for the strategic workshop was “making the impossible possible”. Alex’s talk and presentation set a high standard for the days to follow, and we would constantly refer to clips of his speech and presentation. Alex comes highly recommended."
Ashley Walbrugh, HR Manager: Coal, Exxaro Resources

“Alex highlighted the drive to achieve your goal, but not at any cost.”
Deon Smit, Technical Director, SA Paper Chemicals

“Alex taught us to face our own Everest whatever it might be.”
Danie van Wyk, Independent Director, Balltron

“Awe inspiring. A very moving testimony of what courageous men and women can achieve.”
Stephen Selamolela, Finance and Admin, FNB
