Tom is an incredibly passionate, inspiring, personable, modest and entertaining motivational speaker and one of the most popular on the international circuit.
Not only is Tom a record-breaking explorer and passionate environmentalist, but he is also the founder of Ski Verbier Exclusive, one of the world’s leading luxury ski companies. This combination makes Tom a truly unique speaker, enabling him to relate directly to corporate audiences and to subtly draw out key lessons from both the expedition and business worlds
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 many record-breaking journeys. Drawing on his own personal experiences, 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 can tailor his talks to suit each audience or conference theme.
Tom has been firmly established as a corporate motivational speaker for many years, speaking to a broad spectrum of audiences on five continents to rave reviews. Tom has also been a guest speaker at the Davos World Economic Forum, as well as at the Royal Geographical Society in London and the National Geographic Society in Washington DC.

The evening was a great success thanks to your inspiring contribution. Your motivation and passion was truly infectious and the feedback we have had from our audience has been outstanding. Thank you for bringing the event to life! We will definitely be booking you up again.
Tom's talk to our invited audience could not have set higher standards. His cheerful enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject brought alive his experiences as though one was there. The depth and range of the questions afterwards bore this out. A hard act to follow!
Tom was just fantastic and right on the mark for what we required. The attention he commanded from the audience was palpable - from where I was sitting at the back I could see everyone was transfixed. I would not hesitate in recommending him to colleagues.
