Pen gave a ‘highly entertaining talk’ at Save The Rhino’s annual fund-raising dinner at London Zoo, contributing to the prodigious efforts of this inspiring charity to raise £25,000 successfully on the night.
Inspirational Speaker • Performance Coach • Personal Mentor
Pen’s career has seen him receive awards for world-class performances as an explorer, record-breaking adventurer, professional guide, and entrepreneur.
He now offers his hard-won experience to individuals, teams and organisations through his public speaking, executive coaching and mentoring work.
Pen is highly regarded as an inspirational and thought-provoking presenter of keynote and motivational speeches and entertaining after-dinner talks.
Qualified as an executive coach, he now works with executives to bring about the personal and organisational changes needed to achieve the business objectives and an individual’s goals.
He is also retained by parents as a personal mentor to young-adults finding their feet in the world of school, sports performance, the work-place and beyond.
Hailed by The Times as the ‘thinking man’s explorer’, his empathetic nature, gentle humour, innovative approach, and commitment to meeting his clients’ needs, can catalyse the progress sought.
Pen rose to global acclaim when he became the first person to trek solo to the North Pole by the hardest route – a feat which has not been repeated, and was likened to the first solo ascent of Mt Everest without oxygen by a new route.
His subsequent leadership of the pioneering international exploration programme, Catlin Arctic Survey (2007-2013), resulted in global awards for environmental protection, communications technology, and business sponsorship.
It has become apparent that Pen’s work in exploration combined with his interest in coaching provides a valuable mix of psychological tools, illustrative stories, and catalysing energy that people enjoy using to make the changes they want.
