Trailblazer will motivate women

A TRAILBLAZING adventurer will visit Birregurra next month to help women conquer their goals.

While not everyone can traverse the world’s icecaps like Linda Beilharz, the adventurer says every woman is capable of achieving great things.

Ms Beilharz will discuss the principles of success when she speaks to Colac and district women to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 10.

Adventurer Linda Beilharz will speak at Birregurra next month.

Ms Beilharz became the first Australian woman to ski from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole in 2004 before setting herself a new goal – to traverse the world’s four icecaps.

She has since crossed the icecaps of Greenland, South Pole and North Pole and will make a second attempt at crossing the South Patagonia icecap next year.

Ms Beilharz said the guiding principles of her achievements were the same for any goal.

“Resilience and team work are the most important things, and it’s about being strong – whether that be physically strong or mentally strong,” Ms Beilharz said.

Ms Beilharz, the executive officer of Women’s Health Loddon Mallee at Bendigo, said she would travel to New Zealand to train for her next expedition.

Ms Beilharz will speak at the International Women’s Day event at Birregurra Town Hall on March 10.
