Inspiring Talks

Drawing on her life-changing experiences, challenges, journeys, and lessons learned along the way, Lee is an engaging, powerful speaker who inspires business owners, self-starters and teams to achieve and maintain success through a combination of vision, stamina and passion, proving what a difference purpose can make to success.

Her inspiring talk, Be Inspired, has gained critical acclaim, highlighting the ability to overcome challenges in the pursuit of goals. Her ability to relate to her audience and link strategy execution and the obstacles of running a business to the difficulties faced on the summit of Everest and the brutal trails of the Sahara desert make Lee a highly in-demand motivational speaker.

In November 2019, Lee will once again put her mind, body and perseverance to the test as she prepares for the 160km Everest Trail Run – a route widely considered to be one of the highest altitude races in the world.

For Lee den Hond, this challenge is one she will relish with the same determination and passion that she has achieved with every other challenge.


Lee den Hond has worked with a number of companies in South Africa and further afield.
