Meet Hazel

I’ve planned and executed expeditions to remote parts of the world such as Alaska and the Arctic to raise awareness of key issues, including how a changing climate is affecting our world; the environment, the wildlife and the people that live in it. I’ve taken part in adventure challenges that challenged me both mentally and physically, and I’ve worked towards my passion of making a positive difference in the world.

One thing I’ve learned from these expeditions is how important mindset is. When I was on on day 10 of skiing solo across Hardangervidda and woke up to deep snow that was going to make the next hill take most of the day to climb - or when Luke and I (and our kayaks) were stuck on a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean with torrential rain for the 4th day in a row - thinking “I quit” or “I can’t do this” is not really an option. It induces a sense of helplessness and feeling stuck.

What I discovered from these experiences is that this type of suffering is completely optional. Instead, being aware of what I was thinking and then training my brain to think thoughts helpful to the situation was one of the most powerful things I could do on expedition, rather than coming from a place of fear and doubt that would keep me from making progress.

It was only in the last few years that I made the connection of how this directly applies not only to expeditions, but to everyday life, with all its challenges and opportunities. What we think - how we think about things - affects every single part of our lives: how we feel, how we interact with others and ultimately what we create.

Since then, I’ve gone from someone who was always rushing from one thing to the next, busy and overwhelmed, wanting to make more of a positive impact, but not sure how to get there - to creating more space and time in my life to really understand what was important to me. With mindset work I completely transformed my own life and this led me to train as a coach and co-found Everyday Impact - to make a difference in the lives of others, show them the powerful, life-changing mindset shifts that helped me, and help them create the space in their lives to discover what it is they truly care about to make a positive impact in the world.

As well as a Certified Life and Mindset Coach trained through The Life Coach School, I’m a motivational speaker, expedition leader and geoscientist, with a Masters in climate change solutions. I’ve also spent the last 11 years leading international teams on projects that aim to make a positive difference on climate change.

Meet Luke

From overcoming two life-threatening medical conditions to skiing 730 miles solo and unsupported to the South Pole, I’ve learned how our mindset holds all our power to reach seemingly impossible goals from positions of indecision, doubt and uncertainty. 

I used to be someone who thought a lot about doing big things, without doing big things.

I knew I wanted to do something - but felt I didn’t know how or where to start, or what exactly I even wanted to do.

And so I rarely started anything.

And anything I started was rarely finished.

I felt like life was happening to me instead of living intentionally. 

What I wasn’t aware of was, with the right tools, I had the ability to change this at any point.

Whether preparing to undergo life-saving surgery, competing in 100 mile trail races or kayaking in the remote Arctic Ocean, I realised that we hold the power to choose what to make any situation mean to us.

I realised that with a shift in mindset using tools learned from self-coaching, I could apply this to transform my thinking around everyday life and career challenges that were stopping me from what I wanted to do.

I've applied these tools over a decade working across finance and sustainability roles with The United Nations, start-ups and international corporations to produce results far beyond my expectations.

As well as testing, training and mastering mindset in business expeditions and endurance events, I’ve delivered talks for platforms like TEDx and international businesses.

And I've now found my own purpose in helping people create the space and balance they need, to find direction and purpose, and gain the courage to make the positive changes to their lives that I know we can all make.
