Prepare to be inspired to Think Big, meet Holly Budge. She’s a badass adventurer with a couple of world records under her belt, including being the first woman to skydive Everest and race 1000km across Mongolia on semi-wild horses. She recently climbed to the summit of Everest and has raised over £300K for charities. She doesn’t stop there, she is passionate about elephants and is educating and inspiring a global audience about the devastating impacts of the African Elephant ivory trade. Her multi award-winning charity, How Many Elephants, is immersive, design-led and will leave you speechless. It visualises the annual poaching rate of 35K elephants in a powerful art installation and avoids any gruesome or gory imagery. Holly is gaining momentum quicker than a charging herd of elephants and is touring major international cities with her anti-poaching campaign.
