Biography

Brigitte Muir is the first Australian woman to have climbed Mount Everest and the first Australian, male or female, to have climbed the highest mountain on each continent. Her nine year long quest, which included four dramatic attempts on Mount Everest, gives her a unique insight on achieving long term goals, on maintaining personal motivation and on the most important skill needed when working with people: communication!

Rare footage from the top of the world, stunning pictures, her passionate personality and honesty make for powerful presentations which inspire audiences to climb the mountains in their lives.

Her key points are illustrated by striking stories such as being abandoned by her team near the top of Everest, the 1996 disaster where eleven people died in a single night and what challenges await after you have climbed the highest of all mountains.

Brigitte makes a genuine connection with people, engages them and gives them a real sense of the journey, be it in business, at school, or in life. Her willingness to talk with participants after presentations allows them to absorb some of her determination and passion into their own goal setting and ways of acting.

Brigitte Muir is an adventurer. She has climbed some of the world's highest mountains and through her art explores some of world's greatest mysteries. As a Belgium teenager she discovered caving and decided that outdoor adventures were a lot more exciting than sitting inside watching TV. Her love of the outdoors has taken her all over the world, she has climbed and walked extensively in the Himalaya and has been on nine expeditions to 8000m peaks.

In 1988, she started a quest to climb the highest mountain on each continent: nine years later, in May 1997, she became the first Australian woman to climb Everest, and the first Australian to climb the Seven Summits.

As an accomplished writer, Brigitte has captured her remarkable journeys in her autobiography, "˜The Wind in my Hair"˜, which was published by Penguin in September 1998. National Geographic has also published "˜Climbing Mount Everest', a book based on Brigitte Muir's Everest climb. "˜The Eight Summit' a documentary produced by SBS based on Brigitte's life gives us further insight into her challenges and achievements and is to be broadcasted world wide.

In recent years, Brigitte Muir passion for exploring has led her to investigate the world of multi media. Using film, photography and a mixture of other mediums Brigitte's works challenge and excite us with their inspired take on people and the natural world.
