Lewis Pugh is a leading inspirational and leadership speakers and an authority on how to achieve the "impossible." He has pioneered swims in the most challenging environments on earth, including the Antarctic, the North Pole and the Himalayas, and developed an understanding of the beauty and fragility of life and its many ecosystems. He was the first person to complete a long-distance swim in every ocean of the world. He was the first to undertake a swim across the icy waters of the North Pole and the first to swim across a glacial lake on Mt. Everest. Lewis is a vivid storyteller. He talks about the methods he uses to undertake swims, which were deemed "impossible"—choosing the right team, meticulous preparation, the right mind-set, never quitting, and changing when circumstances dictate. Lewis has received numerous awards. In 2010, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader, and in 2013, the United Nations appointed him "Patron of the Oceans."
