According to an extensive Heathrow survey, Sir Ranulph's flight that led to him reaching the summit of Everest - and cross both polar ice caps, is the most significant journey of the last century.  Fellow motivational speaker, Sir Robin Knox Johnson was also named in the top 5 for his departure to go on and single-handedly circumnavigate the globe.

Sir Ranulph is currently involved in intensive training to complete the gruelling Marathon des Sables in April.  The challenge is made up of 6 marathons in 6 days traversing the Sahara Desert in incredible temperatures. Sir Ranulph is aiming to raise £2.5 million for cancer charity Marie Curie.  His latest publication is also due out later this year.  He continues to be one of busiest and best motivational speakers in the country, in huge demand for a wide range of conferences and events.
