Miles Hilton Barber
Miles Hilton Barber has been blind since his early twenties, but has not let that stop him from challenging barriers. He has sought adventure and succeeded on expeditions to deserts, mountains and the polar regions.
He is an exceptional storyteller and corporate motivational speaker whose messages of “never give up”, “expect the unexpected” and “think big to achieve big” come wrapped in a package of humour and profound personal insight.
He uses his experiences as an international adventurer to motivate and inspire others to achieve their potential. His words are not hollow generalisations – he offers practical ideas that work for everyone.
Miles’ managerial background complements his skills as a speaker, enabling him to tailor his talks to your particular business and personnel.
His presentations are entertaining, motivating and inspirational, sharing with his audiences the things he would want to hear if their roles were reversed. “I want them [the audience] to feel they are looking inside the hearts and minds of the people who worked together as a team, took risks, extended the envelope, and made an impossible dream a reality,” he says.
Whether Miles is giving a keynote corporate presentation or an after dinner speech, his humour, timing and use of material is exceptional. He mixes in laughter, telling stories from his own rich experiences as a blind person covering such life-lesson themes as;
- Dream big to achieve big
- Expect the Unexpected
- Never Give Up
- The Importance of Teamwork
- Don’t let your Past Determine Your Future
- Facing your fears
- Taking advantage of adversity
- Benefiting from failure
He has shared the speaking platform with such individuals as Rudi Giuliani,New YorkMayor on 9/11, Olympic Medallist Roger Black, Jeremy Paxman, Melvin Bragg, and Lord David Puttnam addressing corporate and celebrity audiences around the world.
