This will be Ash’ third TED Talk, after speaking in Manchester (2016) and Cardiff (2017).


Ash said: "My talk title is 'Life lessons learnt from the extremes', I'll aim to focus on sharing stories that are relatable in everyday life. I want to provide an insight into lessons I learnt, in some of the worlds inhospitable environments and techniques I put in place, that helped save my life and achieve my goal.
These lessons can be converted into every day struggles that we all face.

The aim being, to leave the audience feeling empowered and motivated to achieve whatever it is they’re working towards.

My stories also include environmental angles, promote clean living and highlight positive actions taking place to help protect and preserve the biodiversity of the countries I've travelled through".
Ash will then travel north to Beijing, where he’ll spend the day at an international college, sharing stories and taking workshops.

Before returning home, Ash will help to launch Dragon TV’s new documentary across China.
