The Ely Cathedral Business Group committee is thrilled to announce that Alpine Ricky Munday, Everest Summiteer and founder of Inspire, will be delivering the keynote talk at the inaugural Celebration of Business dinner in Ely Cathedral's Lady Chapel.

Ricky Munday is an inspirational speaker, international expedition leader, Red Cross delegate and Chartered Accountant. To overcome redundancy, in 2004 he completed the toughest footrace on earth - the 150-mile Marathon des Sables. With a decade of expedition experience behind him, he reached the highest point on earth - the summit of Mount Everest - on 18th May 2018. He's since visited over 70 schools and businesses across the UK to deliver inspirational talks to over 14,000 people. He has delivered talks on perseverance, developing resilience, goal-setting and overcoming adversity at many of the UK's leading independent schools and corporations. A qualified Mountain Leader and Polar Ambassador who grew up on a council estate, Ricky founded Inspire Alpine as a social enterprise to help close the attainment gap that exists between disadvantaged young people and their peers. As a Chartered Accountant, Ricky is a resilient and highly motivated corporate services leader with an unusual breadth of experience transforming large, multidisciplinary and multicultural support functions in complex and insecure environments across the public, private and third sectors, and completed field missions in post-disaster scenarios in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.

The dinner culminates a packed day of b2b networking and innovative seminars led by local business leaders. Tickets are priced at an accessible £25 per person and include a drinks reception and a locally sourced three course meal provided by The White Pheasant Restaurant.
