ACCA - The global body for professional accountants


An ACCA London Women's Network Professional Networking Dinner 

ACCA London Women's are holding their annual dinner at The Benihana Restaurant.

The after dinner speaker will be Ian Woodhall with his story of The Tao of Everest.  

As the first rays of dawn crept across the Tibetan plateau Ian Woodall stepped on to the summit of Mount Everest and into history, one of a select few to have climbed the world's highest mountain by both its south and north sides.

During his first ascent from the south Ian's team were trapped at 24 000ft in the worst storm in Everest history which claimed the lives of eight fellow climbers. After the trauma and tragedy of the storm Ian and his team nevertheless chose to try again, finally reaching the summit as the only ones left on the mountain. 

You will hear the whole story from Ian at the dinner.
