Kate Hallam is passionate about adventures and expeditions. She recently managed the campaign for Atlantic Endeavour, resulting in rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in a team of four women in 55 days. Kate is also an avid amateur mountaineer, already summiting classic alpine peaks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn, a number of mountains over 6000m+, and trekking at high altitude in remote places including Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and Iraq.
She has also been a Project Manager for the UK charity Raleigh International leading a group of 18-21 year-olds in Borneo for 10 weeks, taught English to children in Vietnam, helped build an orphanage and hiked the Inca trail in Peru, sailed down the West coast of the UK, got her advanced scuba diving license, enjoys ultra/trail running, rock climbing, ice climbing and skiing, and has travelled or worked in over 50 countries around the world.
Kate is an advocate for women’s empowerment. Through her full-time career in London as an Investment Manager for an international development organisation she has met and aided some of the most disadvantaged women in the world. Seeing the daily resilience of these women continues to inspire and motivate her on her challenges and she is keen to support them through her Endeavours through raising donations and awareness of their struggles.
Coming from an inner city state school background and now balancing a career with her adventures, she also recognises the challenges that many women face here in the UK in their personal confidence and other barriers in getting into sports and outdoor activities. Through her Endeavours, Kate aims to inspire women to push their physical and mental boundaries and demonstrate that with hard work and determination anything is possible. As such she has spoken about her experiences to schools, corporates and even at a festival.
Kate is based in London, training for her next Himalayan expedition and working towards her Mountain Leader qualification.
