Explorer and Mount Everest conqueror Sir Ranulph Fiennes is one of the world’s top inspirational business motivational speakers and has thrilled audiences everywhere with his superbly illustrated and highly motivating talks and presentations. Sir Ranulph will appear at The Jersey Opera House for one night only on 31 October 2012.
In 1984 the Guinness Book of Records described Sir Ranulph Fiennes as the “World’s Greatest Living Explorer”. His inspiring message is relevant to anyone – male, female, young or old. Fiennes’ entertaining and inspiring presentations are adapted not only to suit each audience or conference theme but also to keep up with his latest expeditions. With the next one due to commence in November 2012, this evening gives the Jersey audience real-time positioning in this man’s remarkable career. A burning message of personal motivation relevant to any demanding activity in the increasingly competitive business field is guaranteed to fire up any audience with enthusiasm.
His exploits have seen Sir Ranulph travel up the White Nile in a hovercraft; parachuting onto Europe’s highest glacier; forcing his way up 4,000 miles of the mightiest rivers of Canada and Alaska; trekking on foot and unsupported to the North Pole and the great Transglobe expedition in which Fiennes and his companion Charles Burton became the first men in history to reach both Poles.
In November 2003, Ranulph Fiennes and Mike Stroud completed an incredible seven marathons in seven days: a global adventure that began in the wilds of South America and finished in New York’s concrete jungle. In March, 2007, despite former frostbite injuries, limited climbing experience and a fear of heights, at the age of 63, Ran successfully climbed the North Face of the Eiger to raise money for the Marie Curie cancer charity after losing his wife, mother and sister to the disease over an 18-month period. At the age of 65 and at his 3rd attempt, he conquered Mount Everest, telling the BBC, “This is the closest you can get to the moon by walking.”
As a measure of his abilities, Sir Ranulph was selected by IBM New York as their chief motivational speaker out of 700 top international speakers. He spoke at 65 major conferences worldwide.
