Speaker Profile

“Outstanding in every respect… amusing, terrifying, engaging, inspiring. Terrific.” Vernon Sankey, Board Director, Pearson plc

All over the world audiences continue to be inspired by Pen’s extraordinary story of achievement in some of the most challenging of circumstances and environments on Earth.

Pen brings to life his personal mission – the issues and challenges, the setbacks and risks, and the key lessons, learned the hardest of ways – to become the first person ever to trek solo, without resupply by third parties, from Canada to the North Geographic Pole – the toughest route.

The scale of challenge presented by this world-first, which has yet to be repeated, has been compared by some to making the first ascent of Everest, solo and without oxygen. … and within months, Pen went on to become the first Briton to trek without resupply to both the North and South Poles.

Speaking Style

Significantly, audiences quickly appreciate Pen’s approach is all about engaging with their personal situation – their fears, their challenges and their dreams. It’s not about recounting what he’s done.

With the audience realising how he may be able to offer something of real value to them, he can begin to introduce his insights in a way that makes them engrossingly relevant, with humour, passion and impact.

With the option of supporting dramatic images and film footage, Pen’s ideas can continue to resonate far beyond the event.

As Dame Anita Roddick once wrote: “You have a gift – and should use it. Few can communicate with a level of engagement and intensity like that.”
