Event Details

Listen and network with two real life Adventurers

Listen to Pip Hare and Nick Hollis talk about their exciting and dangerous expeditions, what it really takes to conquer your dreams, ambitions and pushing yourself to the limit!

Pip Hare

In 2020, Pip will enter the world’s toughest single-handed yacht race, the Vendee Globe, with the ambition of breaking the current female record. Over ten years of preparation have led Pip to this point and the journey has not been easy.

Nick Hollis

Nick’s business background started with 15 years spent in senior management for Hewlett Packard and 3M handling multi-billion dollar revenues. He currently runs Fitways Adventures, a highly respected outdoor training and expedition company, leading expeditions as far away as Eastern Nepal and the Amazon Rainforest.

From the corporate world to the snowy mountain slopes Hollis has witnessed not only success, but also the great risk associated with the pursuit of ambitious goals. Summiting Everest he experienced snow blindness and failing oxygen systems in the death zone, and encountered the unfortunate deaths of inexperienced climbers. He explains how practicing detailed preparation and managing calculated risk are the reasons he is still here today.

The Evolve Business Festival is part of the BOMO Festival, which is taking place during September and October every year, BOMO brings an inspiring season of arts, culture and ideas to Bournemouth’s South Coast, attracting visitors across the UK to a festival of events spanning entrepreneurial, creative, digital, music, arts and film.
