Ash’s talk was really interesting and engaging – I learnt a lot from how he went about dealing with the challenges he faced on many of his trips.  He was a great story teller and key note speaker to end our conference – thank you!

We were delighted to host Ash at our customer event in Athens this winter. His talk on walking the Yangtze brought a real dose of adventure to proceedings and our audience were thrilled to hear about his remarkable accomplishments. I can highly recommend him as an inspiration to all, especially to young people who are looking to push the boundaries of what they can do, be the best and never quit.


Ash Dykes is one of the most exciting speakers I have worked with, who impressed me with his high efficiency! I saw from him, his passion for environmental protection and for breaking new ground of potential. His passion is reflected in his speech, for the full 18 minutes he had the whole crowed silently listening at the TEDxHangzhouSalon 2019 stage. Many of the audience couldn’t wait to ask our organising committee whether his speech scripts can be shared with them. Thanks again Ash Dykes!!

TedX Hangzhou

At one of the busiest evening events hosted by London’s Science Museum – a special Science Lates in conjunction with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – Ash spoke to a full house about his travels, adventures and own experience of getting malaria. With standing room only, Ash’s talk was a chance for a new audience to hear about malaria, a disease that still kills a child every two minutes.
