Ben Saunders Speaks at Inspire: Leading Authorities' Day of Ideas


World Record-Breaking Polar Explorer and Repeat TED Speaker, Ben Saunders, was the first keynote speaker to kick off the 2018 Inspire: Leading Authorities' Day of Ideas conference on February 23rd.

One of the world's best-known adventurers and a three time TED speaker, Ben has been dubbed a "Master Storyteller" by TED owner Chris Anderson, he's freshly back from a grueling journey in Antarctica, where he walked unsupported to the South Pole. During his talk, Ben enthralled the audience as he explained why “Impossible is just someone’s opinion.”

His visuals and stories were breath-taking and at times both nerve-wracking and hilarious. He left the audience inspired to push past what they perceive to be impossible, challenge the best version of themselves, and infuse their lives with a daily sense of purpose.
