SPEAKER FEE RANGE: $20,000–$45,000 [FEE NOTE]
TRAVELS FROM: International
Polar explorer and world record-breaking long-distance skier Ben Saunders is a man who is making history. Best known for leading one of the most ambitious polar expeditions in a century, he was the first to successfully complete the epic, 105-day, 1,800-mile trek on foot to retrace Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated, early 20th-century journey to the South Pole – equivalent to running 69 marathons back-to-back. Of his expedition he said, “We can all accomplish great feats through ambition, passion, stubbornness, and refusal to quit. If you dream something hard enough, it does indeed come to pass.” A speaker at the 2005, 2012, and 2014 TED conferences, Ben was labeled “a master story teller” by TED. Saunders combines the allure and nostalgia of 20th century explorers with the ingenuity of today’s modern adventurers. His presentation takes you to the ends of the Earth and back and showcases spectacular visuals, a commanding stage presence, a winning smile, and funny and relatable stories.
