The acquisition of real-world wisdom is attained through lived experiences in the real world… it is not necessarily found in the pages of books.’
Victoria Humphries is a polar adventurer, three times Guinness World Record holder, marathon runner, author, Bath based businesswoman and a ‘normal’ person. She prides herself on being just your average woman who happens to believe that Anything is Possible if you put your mind to it. Life is full of challenges and we always have a choice – step forward or run away, be overcome by the enormity of it or be brave and step into it. What’s the worst that can happen? Just give it a go!
Victoria was a member of the first all-women’s expedition to the North Pole and since then has embarked on various adventures and challenges. When not accepting challenges and generally being a little bit bonkers she is a businesswoman and until recently led a successful EdTech business. She continues to work as a business consultant in education and also works with companies and schools running resilience workshops; encouraging staff and students to use their lived experiences to build their ‘resilience toolbox’.
