The world needs more sisu girls; girls who are adventurous, brave and fearless; girls who know that falling is not failing, and that perfection is not really how life is. These qualities can be summed up by the Finnish word Sisu, meaning ‘to have extraordinary courage in the face of adversity’. Salomon sponsored ultra runner, SisuGirls Ambassador, and winner of the Hardrock100 race in 2015, Anna Frost, talks about how we all can act as role models, allowing our children to find their inner sisu, to show the world their true colours, their determination to succeed through trial and error, fun and strength, hard work and passion.


At TEDxExeter 2016 our speakers encapsulated the idea of movement, that grappling with humanity’s toughest questions requires first a vision, a dream, and then action.
