Sir Ranulph Fiennes
The World's Greatest Living Explorer
One of the world's greatest explorers, Sir Ranulph has launched a series of record-breaking expeditions that have kept him ahead of international rivals for over thirty years.
He was the first to reach both Poles and the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Oceans. In 2003, only 3½ months after a massive heart attack, a three day coma and double bypass, Ranulph Fiennes (with Mike Stroud) achieved the first 7x7x7 (seven marathons in only seven days on all seven continents). By 2006, Ranulph Fiennes had raised over £7½ million for different UK charities.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes set foot on the summit of Everest in May 2009, two failed attempts and a heart attack after he first tried to conquer the mountain in 2005. He is, at 65, the first British pensioner to reach the summit of Everest.
He is a man of astonishing force who has been voted one of the world's top ten speakers. His motivational talks provide fascinating insight into human determination and give inspirational examples of what can be achieved by extending the limits. Learn how Sir Ranulph tackles the questions of leadership, teamwork, goal setting, determination, and self-belief, using the many analogies that can be drawn between the challenges faced on his adventures and life in the everyday world.
