Is any group, organisation, or company in the U.S., Canada or the U.K. interested in the following.
I am now Irish Government and EU registered as a motivational speaker, which enables me to tender for motivational speaking events in Ireland and all EU countries.
Would any group anywhere in the U.S., Canada or the U.K. like to book a 75 year old long distance cyclist and long distance hiker to give a motivational talk including a slide show, for approximately an hour. The talk can be tailored to meet the time that you have available.
I was 75 years old in January. I hiked the Camino Portuguese and Camino to Muxia and Cape Finisterre last year. Within the past six months, I repeated the Camino to Muxia and Finisterre and I am now planning to do that Camino again for the third time from 19th. to 26th. April. I also plan to hike from the Arctic Circle to the Gulf of Bothnia in Finnish Lapland during next August or September (when the mosquitos have died off 🙂)
Over the past couple of years, I have walked from Slyne Head in Galway to Howth Head in Dublin (207 miles) and from Dublin to Cork, (160 miles) here in Ireland, pushing a baby’s buggy! I have also taken part in long distance cycles in South Africa, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, France and Finland. I also did 500 kilometre cycle challenges in the U.S. in Monterey, California; in Flagstaff, Arizona; in Athens, Georgia and also in Niagara, Ontario, Canada.
If any of you younger or older people would like to be be inspired to get off your backsides and raise a few dollars/euro for your local charity or just for your own self-motivation; I’m available anytime and will travel anywhere in the world to talk to you.
The fee will be return air fares to Dublin, 2/3 nights accommodation plus $500/£350 (1 hour +) speaking fee. If a number of groups in the same region would like to book me; the costs of flights and accommodation can be shared.
A Facebook friend posted this photo of me speaking at “The Howth Summit” in Howth Yacht Club on last Thursday. (4th. January).
