Benedict Allen is one of the best known of modern explorers, his inspiring speeches, BBC television programmes and seven books taking us dramatically to the remotest corners of the world. Unlike most explorers, he relies mainly on indigenous people to teach him how to survive – people who see the jungle and desert not as a threat but as a home. Ben is an accomplished public speaker using his unique experience of overcoming obstacles around the world to motivate people in our own society and helping us succeed in our own jungles.
“Feedback included … `A highly entertaining and vivid story teller, Benedict has an amazingly inspiring lifestyle that captures the audience’s imagination instantly. In spite of his clear resilience, courage, heroism and pioneership he remains modest and humorous, pitching himself at the same level of curiosity and trepidation at his particular circumstances as the audience. The audience feel they can relate to him if not the conditions he finds himself in’. I found Benedict fascinating, intriguing and stimulating, our money was very well spent” Kay Thompson, IBM Global Business Services
