Miles has an amazing story to tell of meeting the challenges of going blind and seizing opportunities and embarking on adventures which would make a hero out of a fully sighted athlete! Whether Miles is giving a keynote presentation or an after dinner speech, his humour, timing and use of material is exceptional. He mixes laughter telling stories from his own rich experiences as a blind person covering such life-lessons as expect the unexpected, never give up, the importance of teamwork and don’t let your past determine your future.

His numerous achievements include: First blind pilot to undertake a 55-day, 21,000 kilometre microlight flight from London to Sydney, relying on revolutionary speech-output technology, accompanied by his sighted co-pilot; Man-hauling a sledge over 250 miles across Antarctica; Completing “The Toughest Foot-race on earth” – 150 miles across the Sahara Desert; Climbing to 17,500 feet in the Himalayas; Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt. Blanc- Africa’s/Europe’s highest mountains; Running the 11-day Ultra-Marathon race across China from the Gobi Desert to the Great Wall – the list goes on …

Miles was fantastic! An inspiration to our people on both a professional and personal level. The feedback from the team was testimony to how Miles touched so many of them and the fact that we have gone back again and again to have Miles speak to different groups within our organisation is testimony to the value that he adds.” – Nino Di Vito.
