‘The whole country is delighted, and your courage and fortitude set a marvellous example to us all. You have a most deserving place in history and we are very proud of you.’ – The Prime Minister
‘You have a gift – and you should use it. Few can communicate with a level of engagement and intensity like that.’ – Dame Anita Roddick, Founder of the Body Shop.
‘Pen Hadow’s experience was genuinely inspirational and motivating. Having launched Marks and Spencer’s Plan A initiative on the need to tackle the enormous challenge of climate change, it was fantastic to hear from someone who has experienced global warming issues with their own eyes.’ – Stuart Rose, CEO, Marks and Spencer
‘Pen was amazing, just amazing, richard was extremely impressed with his presentation and Pen himself. I thought he was utterly charming and a real gentleman, he was an outstanding speaker and we have received many compliments on his presentation. It was a real pleasure to meet him. Thank you both so much.’ – Tracey Fletcher, Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co
‘Clients were blown away by his achievements.’ – Coutts Bank
“All men dream: but not equally. Pen Hadow… showed that the Edwardian spirit of adventure displayed by Shackleton and Scott is alive today.” – The Times
“Jonathan Dimbleby, Pen Hadow and Simon Murray gelled to provide one of the most revealing, provocative and entertaining evenings we’ve had the privilege to organise” – Director, Royal Geographical Society
“Hadow’s most beguiling quality is his ability to make people believe they can do anything.” – The Daily Telegraph
“Pen’s retelling of his first person solo trek without resupply by third parties, from Canada to the North Pole is inspirational. He brings alive the struggle to achieve difficult goals and overcome obstacles that would have defeated most explorers. He has an approachable manner and engages with his audience with the use of photos and videos from his epic journey. My team particularly enjoyed a lively Q & A session that allowed true audience engagement. I would recommend Pen to any company looking for a speaker that stands out from the rest.” – Neil Cook, National Sales Manager, AMCo

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.
