Dr. Glenn Singleman & Heather Swan

World Record Holding Adventurers & Professional Presenters specialising in Inspiration and Fearlessness.

We are a husband and wife team, World Record Holding Professional Adventurers and Professional Inspirational keynote speakers specialising in 'Fearlessness'. This doesn't mean we have no fear, far from it. Fear is essential, it's a protective mechanism and without it none of us would last long, but the outmoded fear system humans share with all other animals is ill-equipped to deal with modern life and more often than not it stands between us and our true potential.

A "Fearless LIfe' is an attitude built on commitment and powered by understanding, embracing, and using fear to be who we want to be and live the life we want to live.

This is what we teach in our Keynote Speaking Presentations, Workshops, Trips and Treks and coming soon our new book 'A Fearless Life'.

We teach from Glenn's background as a Physician specialising in remote medicine, our long history in extreme sport, in life and love, and since men and women experience fear differently, from a male and female perspective.

How we come to be where we are

Dr. Glenn Singleman is one of Australia's most successful adventurers. Over his long career in extreme sport he's notched up World Records, World Firsts, many prestigious awards and most importantly a deep understanding of fear, and how to use it to progress, rather than hamper our goals.

Heather met Glenn at one of his inspirational keynote presentations nearly 20 years ago. Heather found Glenn so INCREDIBLE and INSPIRING -  she introduced herself and they married (a few years later). Glenn turned Heather's life upside down (in a good way). She was not adventurous, she was a corporate executive, yet today by following a process to overcome irrational fear and to build physical and emotional strength, Glenn and Heather are a successful team, in life, and also in business and adventure.

Our wingsuit BASEjump from Mt Meru (6672m) in India broke Glenn's existing World Record set from the Great Trango Tower in 1992.

So far their partnership has produced three world records and two Australian records in extreme sport, including the official record for the worlds highest BASEjump in a wingsuit from 6604m on Mt Meru in the Indian Himalaya (the BASEClimb 3 project) and the FIRST (and only) wingsuit crossing of the Grand Canyon (April 9th 2015).

In addition to being a professional adventurer, Glenn is a multi-award winning documentary filmmaker and a practicing medical doctor with a special interest in the physiology and psychology of fear and expedition medicine (he is currently the Medical Director of The Big Red Run and The North Face 100). He has been a professional expeditioner for over 30 years. He's been part of bold expeditions on every continent - to the highest mountains and the depths of the oceans. He is AMAZING!

When they're not adventuring or speaking Heather follows her passion for writing and photography. You can read one of her inspirational stories on legendary skydiver Wendy Smith in SkyDivingMag and amazing 60 Minutes reporter Liz Hayes in Renegade Collective Magazine. Or check out her photography website - a1000words.com.au.

Glenn and Heather are fortunate to speak all over the world to all kinds of audiences - sharing their story along with their hard won insights into FEAR, PERFORMANCE, PARTNERSHIP, HAPPINESS & HEALTH. They've spoken to tens-of-thousands of people, at corporate, community and government events all over the world.

Documentaries

Glenn and Heather had fun making our own documentaries - BASEClimb 1 (Glenn), 2 & 3, and working with 60 Minutes (three times) and Australian Story (twice) and working with Jon Long on his new feature documentary 'The Search for Freedom'. Through these films they've been able to share something of their incredible adventures with hundreds of millions of people around the world.  Glenn is also part of James Cameron's documentary team. Most recently he worked with him on 'Deep Sea Challenger' - Jim's most ambitious and personal project to build and pilot a submarine to the deepest part of the ocean - The Marianas Trench.

Glenn was 2nd Unit Director on James Cameron's Deep Sea Challenger project.

Everyday Life

Glenn and Heather live just outside Sydney on their little farm where Heather cares for a number of rescue horses, dogs, sheep and chickens. Their healthy lifestyle includes trail running most days, a healthy vegan lifestyle, meditation, mindfulness and challenging themselves intellectually and physically.
