News Update: Neil Laughton and Deri Llewellyn-Davies from Everest


I introduced two adventurous friends and former radio show guests  Neil Laughton and Deri Llewellyn-Davies in 2013. The consequence was a very elevating attempt to break a World Record for the Highest Dinner Party to raise funds for Community Action Nepal.Their timing, however, proved to be unfortunate and they are currently safe but as I write on the Advanced Base Camp on the North side of Everest awaiting safe descent. Below is an update yesterday from Deri’s team and a link for us to help the Nepalese people who really need our help right now and obtain Deri’s ebook for free.



Deri on Everest, Neil Laughton and Chris Cooper



Many people have been contacting myself (Kelly) & Sara Beth to discover how Deri is, as he was climbing Everest while the tragic earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday.  It created multiple avalanches, which resulted in fatalities on the mountain, mainly at Base Camp.
Fortunately, the team had already left Base Camp to reach a higher destination, where they were going to attempt to break a World Record.  They are currently at Advanced Base Camp on the North side, as parts of the mountain are shut and the Chinese government are not allowing them to descend to Base Camp yet.  However, the whole team are fine & have enough supplies.
Deri has been in contact with me daily and unfortunately they have had to cancel their Guiness World Record attempt of the Worlds Highest Dinner Party.  However, the Nepalese charity they were raising money for, need donations more than ever now!
So Deri has asked me to send a few things out to you:
  • An official update from Deri & a recording of the interview with the BBC & Neil Laughton  Click Here to listen
  • The team were raising money for Community Action Nepal who now need donations more than ever!  Please donate generously to support the communities in Nepal who are in desperate need of support. Deri is giving you his adventure ebook for FREE as a thank you for your support.  Donate & download here
  • I have passed your messages, thoughts & prayers on to Deri & the team, to which he said to thank you all very much!  He believes they are playing a big part in keeping them safe.
    You can follow updates by Deri’s social media channels

    Best wishes to them both for a safe return and also my thoughts are also with the people of Nepal,

“It was a pleasure to be a guest on Chris´s Voice America show; I hope I was
able to share a few nuggets from my experience in business. Chris – you are
a natural communicator and connector.Chris kindly accepted an invitation to spend a couple of days with me after
the show, to rekindle his connection with the Yorkshire Dales.  It was a
pleasure to get to know Chris more and understand even more of what he
offers his clients and, potentially, clients I work with too.It was a great investment of my time, understanding the dynamic and
breadth of Chris’s range of skills. Chris is a ‘people’ person; he has an ability
to get the heart of issues and help people work through these, both
individually and as teams. I am really excited about exploring ways to work
more closely with Chris in the future. I am also looking forward to reading his
forthcoming book ‘The Power to Get Things Done’.If you want to ‘be more and achieve more’ you need to talk to Chris; he will
make a difference in so many ways.”
