Key Insights From Investment Firm Tenzing On Their Firewalk Experience

I asked Gareth Healy from Tenzing about his and his teams insights from taking part in our Firewalk Experience and here is what he and the team came back with…

I’ve wanted to take my team firewalking after trying it many years ago as I knew they would love it. We ended up at Ealing Studios with a big up-for-it crowd as all our new Sherpas joined in too. 

Everyone did the walk, and some as many as three times. It was a great team bonding experience and we all felt like we really pushed ourselves.

No, neither would we….

Or, at least that’s what we thought before we descended upon Ealing Studios last Wednesday for our monthly team social at The Firewalk Experience.

In a world where growth and resilience are paramount, firewalking was an eye-opener.


Here are the key lessons we learned:

1️⃣ Overcoming Fear: We discovered that the only thing holding us back from achieving the seemingly impossible was our fear. By walking on fire, we shattered the limits we had placed on ourselves.

2️⃣ Team Unity: The firewalk experience strengthened our bond as a team. We cheered each other on, provided support, and celebrated every step across the hot coals. Together, we achieved the extraordinary.

3️⃣ Mind Over Matter: This adventure reaffirmed the power of mindset. With determination and focus, we conquered our doubts and proved that we’re capable of achieving remarkable feats.

4️⃣ Resilience: Firewalking isn’t just about walking on hot coals; it’s about resilience. We learned to embrace discomfort, adapt to change, and emerge stronger on the other side.

How A Firewalk Experience Challenged Our Team And How We Rose To That Challenge

Every so often I get a ‘lived reminder’, an experience if you like, that reminds me that I may be the one standing in my own way. It challenges me to ask, ‘What could I free myself from? What am I stopping myself doing? What would be the benefit of looking at this challenge differently?’ The firewalk I undertook with my company, Tenzing, offered me that insight.

My Journey To Overcome… by Laura Wyatt

Feeling the wall of heat from the flames burning in front of me was a reminder of what I set out to do. I would walk over these burning embers to help other mums searching in the dark for a hand to hold, to help them through their suffering.

This Girl is on Fire by Emma Johnson

There is a moment, just before you step onto hot coals, where the whole world seems to hold its breath. The guiding arm in front of you falls away, and there is nothing stopping you, the path ahead is clear. And although it’s just a small step forward, it feels like a vast black void of impossibility.

A personal journey to rediscovering ‘strength, grit and determination’ by Shona Mapes

That evening, lying in bed, I knew I needed to go to sleep but I just couldn’t switch off. I started to realise that I hadn’t felt this excitement about anything for a while either. Something was telling me I needed to go for it. I knew that this challenge was something I had to do. I turned over to my partner, Jeff, and said: “I think I want to do the fire walk.” I had no idea what his reaction would be.
