Motivational speakerIn association with Verbier Exclusive
Tom is an incredibly passionate, inspiring, personable, modest and entertaining speaker and with over 400 separate speaking engagements under his belt on five separate continents, he is one of the most popular speakers on the international circuit.
What makes Tom such a unique speaker is that before embarking on his exploration career, he worked in the City as an accountant with Arthur Andersen, meaning that as well as having a high level of professionalism in everything he does, he can directly relate to corporate audiences, subtly drawing out key business and personal lessons.
Illustrated with a stunning collection of images and video clips, Tom's uplifting and fascinating presentations bring the raw beauty of the polar regions to life and describe how his teams battled with the elements during their record-breaking journeys.
Drawing on his own experiences in the worlds of both exploration and business, Tom involves each individual as he makes the analogy between Mother Nature's most extreme challenges, and the day-to-day challenges facing those of us in slightly less dangerous occupations.
Tom's presentations provide a unique and highly motivating lesson for any organisation by stressing how communication, planning, goal setting, creative thinking, patience, organisational skills, enthusiasm, flexibility to meet and overcome unexpected obstacles, risk analysis and individual determination are vital ingredients in achieving results when under extreme pressure.
Tom adapts his talks not only to suit each audience or conference theme but also to keep up to date with his latest expeditions.
