Montreal, Canada

Mount Everest, Nepal



Mount Everest, Nepal​

Montreal, Canada

When Theodore Fairhurst summited Ojos del Salado (6893m) at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 9, 2018,

he became the oldest person in the world to have summited both the Seven Summits and the

Volcanic Seven Summits (highest mountains and volcanoes on all seven continents).


Ted's first venture in his early twenties was to buy and old forty-one seater English bus to haul hippies around Europe.

Back in Montreal he made a living as a visual artist for fifteen years

and then went on to build a successful real estate business from scratch.

He developped a passion for mountaineering in his early fifties and now shares his

appetite for life, inspiration and insights with both

young and adult audiences.


Ted's invitation and moto: Dare To Reach.


Theodore's message to the youth:

"Kids dream.

Their imagination is huge, their aspiration to dare to reach boundless.

It has been my experience speaking to kids that the imagery of mountains and the passion, hardship and

determination that goes into climbing those mountains,

takes them on a very powerful journey to the great opportunity awaiting them in life.

It is not the size of the mountain, it is the size of the dream.

Making them see and understand what goes into the preparation, resolve, tenaciousness, and above all the passion to reach one’s goals,

drives home how one step at a time can make extraordinary things happen.

Every one of us has great hopes and dreams, but not everyone one of us will take that first step down an unknown path to get our enterprise off the ground.

I want to inspire kids to be fearless taking that first step."


Theodore's message to adults:

"Adults need purpose and meaning in life.

Why mankind pushed past the savannah, why we explore across oceans and space, why we dream to be an entrepreneur,

is why we climb mountains.

It is about pushing ourselves to another level.

It is about finding out what we are made of.

It is about discovering everything we can in our short but amazing lives.

Daring to reach all our personal potential.

In my talks to companies and organizations I try to convey this passion for life, my "Dare to Reach." 

At 22 I travelled around the world,

at 35 I built a real estate company from scratch,

at 58 I began an eight-year quest to summit the highest mountain on all 7 continents, and

at 70 my ambitious challenge was to climb the highest volcano on every continent.

I am forever inspired by so many men and women all around the world who take risks to achieve all they can in their communities and environments.

We hold the candle searching down deep for that rock that needs to be turned over.

It is about Inspiring Forward"
