"As an ex pupil of Ditcham Park School, we were fascinated to follow and support Holly in her latest adventure, climbing Mount Everest. The children loved following her progress to the summit of Everest on Instagram – we even created a giant, interactive display of Holly climbing Everest! As our Guest of Honour at Founders Day, she wowed parents, children, staff and special guests with inspirational and moving videos from her summit bid. What really struck a chord, however, was her joy and patience chatting to the children. It really gave a sense of ‘This really is possible, not just a pipe dream.’ We can’t wait to follow Holly on her future adventures and welcome her back to inspire future generations to follow in her footsteps.
Roland Ainsworth, Deputy Head of the Juniors at Ditcham Park School
"A talk laced with danger, high drama and humour, with an accompanying slideshow which had the audience gripping the edge of their seats and my palms sweating – recommended!"
Richard Ainsworth, Creative Hub - Brighton Chamber of Commerce
"You could say Holly is a contradiction. A genuinely lovely human being, personable and down to earth, whilst performing superhuman acts on a world record breaking level. A talented public speaker, who generously shares her experiences of fearless challenges and environmental campaigns. Both an inspiring adventurer and artist, Holly is awesome, in the truest sense of the word."
Zara Wood a.k.a Woody, PechaKucha Brighton
"Holly held our audience captivated with tales of her astounding achievements in the air and on horseback. Her relaxed presentation and sense of humour were a delight and we can’t wait to book her in for future engagements."
Chris Martin, Tales of Adventure
"She’s an immensely enthusiastic speaker and her talks have always been well illustrated, informative and funny. I recommend her highly!"
Dick Willis, The Wilderness Lectures
"Holly is an inspiration to our students and great ambassador for meaningful change. Her passion and unwavering commitment ensure that she consistently overcomes challenges and exceeds expectations.”
Dr. Tom Ainsworth, Course Leader MA Sustainable Design, University of Brighton.
"Last night, pupils, parents and teachers at Lord Wandsworth College were treated to an inspiring talk by Holly Budge. Her passion for world-record challenges was truly admirable, surpassed only by her commitment to charitable works, most notably her How Many Elephants campaign. A direct and engaging speaker, Holly’s talk was a tour de force. If you want to have your pupils inspired, get her in!”
Chris Radmann , Lord Wandsworth College
“Holly is a breath of fresh air. She will surprise and inspire you but will also make you laugh. Most importantly you’ll be reminded that it doesn’t take superhumans to do extraordinary things, it just takes women like Holly who have serious amounts of determination and humour.”
Belinda Kirk, Explorers Connect
