Annabelle Bond certainly has some story to tell about drive, passion, hard work, commitment and achieving your goals, making her a superb choice as motivational speaker at any kind of event.
Singapore-born but now living in Hong Kong, Annabelle is described as a British socialite, activist and international adventurer. The daughter of Sir John Bond, former HSBC chairman and reckoned to be one of the richest men in the world, Annabelle is definitely a self-made woman who has been a company director and pushed the boundaries in terms of personal achievement.
She has scaled many peaks over 6,000 metres high in Argentina (the Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside Asia at nearly 7,000m, was her first climb), Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile. But she is perhaps best known for being the fourth British woman to get to the top of Mount Everest, after which she climbed all seven peaks in every continent over the space of a year. This made her the world’s fastest female climber – and fourth fastest climber in both genders – and helped raised $1.6m for the ovarian cancer charity Eve Appeal.
Never one to shirk a challenge, motivational speaker Annabelle has also done an endurance run – on four separate occasions – across Hong Kong’s 100km (62 miles) mountainous MachLehose trail. In one race she came second, finishing in 16 hours and 50 minutes.
