Axe on Everest presentation heads to NZ in August!

Greetings to all folk in various parts of the world who have been following my blog.

In the last week I have presented to 300 school students, a public presentation evening at CITYGOLF in Bangsa, Kuala Lumpur, students from the Humaneity Youth Development Program at the Singapore Management University (SMU) and a radio interview with BFM Malaysia.  As well of course as fitting in my day job!

I am very excited to be heading back to New Zealand in August to my home province of Taranaki.   Three presentation evenings have been arranged in conjunction with presenting sponsor JSL – Juffermans Surveyors Limited.  The presentations will be in Hawera, Stratford and New Plymouth and more information on the dates and locations can be found in the attached flyer.

As usual with my public talks – all proceeds from the events go to the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust.

I hope to see you there. If you can’t make it and want to hear the story then let me know!

  1. You becoming amous like Lady Gaga!
    Have a great trip


  2. Congratulations Grant, to go back and to do it all again is truely an awesome feat well done. I have been to the Himalaya 3 times climbed 2 6000ers and failed to summit a 7000 peak my third time out. I would love to attempt Everest but I believe you have to your apprenticeship first. Like you I have too much respect for her.
    Will you be speaking in Australia in the future?
    All the best.


    • Hello Ian, thanks for the message. Failure is all part of the game really! I don’t get to Australia too much so currently no plans to speak there at this stage sorry, you never know in the future though. Safe climbing! Axe


    • dear grant, you forgot to mention that you are visiting the coolest class and school in the world. we are very very excited that we are going to finally get to meet you in person. from room 1 at st patricks in inglewood.


  3. Hi Grant,
    I was planning on coming to your talk in Hawera with 4 other people, but just went on the Ticketek website and it says it is no longer on sale. Is it sold out?


    • Hi Claire- hawera was cancelled due to lack of numbers sorry. Could you make. Stratford on Sunday night? If you have problems with tickettek then just call juffermans surveyors directly in new plymouth who will sort you tickets. I am in the airport about to fly back to nz so hope to see you at one of the talks! Axe
