feat – noun, a noteworthy or extraordinary act or achievement, usually displaying boldness or skill.
FEAT KIDS, Fascinating Expedition & Adventure Talks, is an annual day of time-limited presentations. Each presenter speaks for seven minutes; no more, no less. With images. Although the speakers are invited because of their achievements, presentation themes focus on an aspect of their expedition – not the entire extended expedition. With stories of adventures on land, water and in the air, you will be enthralled.
What is FEAT Kids you ask? FEAT Kids is similar to TEDxKids, however FEAT Kids focuses on inspiring and captivating adventure talks by kids, for kids. We hope that the event will motivate youth to dream big and become inspired. Check out the video below and it should all be clear!

Originally created by adventure racer and writer Lisa de Speville, FEAT brought South Africa’s adventurers together. “Most people would love to embark on an expedition; but most are tied to ‘real life’ so they settle for feeding this desire with organised sporting events,” she says.
“It takes a different, special kind of courage and drive to abandon socially accepted norms (day job, family, home) to set off – often solo – on self-motivated and self-organised expeditions. Whether the adventure involves oceans, countries, continents, rivers or mountains, these achievements are extraordinary. I’ve yet to meet a person who is not captivated by tales of adventure.”
Through these Talks, FEAT Kids aims to create an environment for kids to inspire kids.
FEAT Kids is organised by Sean Verret and supported by numerous adventurous speakers, who make these evenings possible.
