Heather is one of Australia's best-known adventurers.

She is the only woman in the world to successfully combine high altitude mountaineering and wingsuit flying. She has featured three times on 60 Minutes and Australian Story and in countless other television, radio and print articles. Just recently, with her husband Dr. Glenn Singleman and BASEClimb High Performance Wingsuit team, she made the first wingsuit flight across The Grand Canyon.
Heather's impressive achievements in adventure are remarkable, but even more so when you consider she didn't begin adventuring until her late 30's. Prior to that she was a senior corporate executive, with a long career in management, marketing and communications, both in Australia and internationally.
Heather Swan is the only woman in the world to combine mountaineering and BASEjumping, let alone wingsuit BASEjumping. She is a mother, award winning author and successful businesswoman.
Heather's story was incredibly interesting, and she told it with humour and warmth. Heather was also lovely to deal with on the day. She was very obliging when I asked if we could "top and t ... keep readingail" our own presentation slides to her presentation, and even offered to click through the slides for us before she got up and presented her story. The feedback from our guests was very positive, and I have no hesitation in suggesting Heather as a speaker to colleagues or friends. Small Business Festival Victoria
