Pen’s natural ability to entertain is evident in his recounting of the terrifying reality of fending off an attacking polar bear with a saucepan … in temperatures three times colder than your deep freeze!
Whether it’s his amazing stories from the sea ice, the characters he has guided to the Pole, the mishaps he’s survived, or the technical challenges rarely made public, you can be confident your guests will be hugely entertained.
Or, if your audience would like to hear how he made it solo to the North Pole, or learn more about the dramatic environmental changes taking place on the Arctic Ocean, notably the rapid loss of sea ice, the humour quotient can be exchanged for a more thought-provoking style.
Pen’s presentation will be tailored to meet the specific brief of your event.

Presenting Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards at Holyrood Palace
Invited to present Gold Awards to young Scots, I found myself overnighting the night before, just a few hundred yards from Holyrood Palace and the adjacent Scottish Parliament building. Skies were overcast and threatening liquid deployment. More happily HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were in the middle of their annual Royal Week based in Holyrood, and spirits were un-dampened amongst the 300 Gold Award recipients, each with their two guests.
