Blind Adventurer Miles Hilton-Barber has spoken at over 1,500 corporate events in 74 countries to date.
Hilton-Barber’s personal “lockdown” experience was going totally blind in his early 20’s. His quality of life, fulfilment and success was radically transformed at the age of 50, not through sight restoration, but through changing his attitude to his blindness. “Quality of life, and our ability to be happy, fulfilled and successful is not dependant on our circumstances, but on our response to them” he says!
Since the age of 50 Miles Hilton-Barber has set numerous world records undertaking extreme events across all seven continents of our world in the fields of mountaineering, desert and polar ultra-marathons, power-boat racing, scuba-diving, motor-racing and long distance, aerobatic and supersonic flying amongst other achievements.
Miles Hilton-Barber outlines a simple yet radical set of Lockdown Life Lessons that will enable companies, individuals and organisations to become more successful today, despite facing unprecedented change, based on his personal philosophy that ‘The only limits in your life are those you accept yourself!’

"Thank you for your extraordinary speech this morning. As you will be able to discern from the feedback, our team was inspired by your story and the way you lent perspective to each of us about life's opportunities and challenges. Your presentation reached directly into the hearts and minds of each of us. I expect that, like me, our colleagues have now begun the process of internalising your wisdom and reflecting on the elements that spoke most deeply to them. Undoubtedly, they will apply many of the lessons you shared today into their own personal journeys. Thank you again for sharing your wisdom, humor, insights and advice with our team. You have touched the lives of nearly 100 people, who in turn, will touch the lives of the patients whom Takeda serves and supports."
Kirsten Detrick, Takeda Austria
