In becoming the first and only person solo to the North Pole by the hardest route, Pen has an extraordinary story of achievement against incredible odds.
His motivational approach is first about engaging with his audiences, relating the fears, challenges and aspirations they have in their work to the same ones he had to deal with himself on his mission to succeed.
With the audience now realising he is offering something of personal and practical value to them, Pen introduces his insights in a way that makes them engrossingly relevant, with humour, passion and impact.
As Dame Anita Roddick (founder, The Body Shop) once wrote: “You have a gift – and should use it. Few can communicate with a level of engagement and intensity like that.”

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.
