To The South Pole & Back—The Hardest 105 Days Of My Life

description

This year, world-class explorer, Ben Saunders, attempted his most ambitious trek yet. He set out to complete Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s failed 1912 polar expedition—a four-month, 1,800-mile round trip journey from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back.

In the first talk given after his adventure, just five weeks after his return, Saunders offers a raw, honest look at this “hubris”-tinged mission that brought him to the most difficult decision of his life.

Watch the video above and then visit Ben's speaker profile to learn more about his speaking topics and see if he would be a good fit to speak at your next meeting or event.

To check his availability and fees for an upcoming speaking engagement or to book Ben for your next event or conference, reach out to our team. You can also contact us by calling 1-800-SPEAKER or emailing us.
