The Right Address has a huge range of speakers, ranging from business specialists and industry professionals to comedians and actors. One of our most exciting categories is, of course, fearless explorers. It doesn’t get much more thrilling than that, does it?
Sir Ranulph Fiennes is one said explorer who has jumped on board The Right Address, offering up his valuable time to speak, interact and answer questions at your events. Here’s everything you need to know about Ranulph.
Who Is Sir Ranulph Fiennes
Sir Ranulph Fiennes, speaker at The Right Address, is a celebrated and widely recognised British explorer – though he prefers the terms expedition organiser and travel writer, as is expected of his humble and gentlemanly nature. In fairness, he has written over twenty books, so he can certainly label himself a ‘travel writer’! This story telling nature feeds beautifully into his speaking, where he recounts tales of his many adventures in such vivid detail and with so much tangible passion that you can’t help but become totally enthralled, hanging on every word he has to say.
Ranulph has led a huge number of expeditions, including to both the North and South Pole, and is the oldest man in Britain to ever climb to the summit of Mount Everest – a difficult feat by anyone’s standards! When asked, Ranulph would probably tell you that his favourite expedition was in 1991, when he re-discovered the lost city of Ubar, and probably wouldn’t say it was when he had to use a hacksaw to cut off his own frost-bitten fingers. Yes, he really did do that!
His Charitable Work
Probably the most remarkable thing about Sir Ranulph is his great charitable nature. He is constantly raising huge sums of money for various charities, with his main project to raise money for Marie Curie Nurses. He often sets incredibly arduous goals (such as this project’s Global Reach challenge, despite his age and various medical conditions) in return for the support of the public who donate to Ranulph’s chosen charities. He’s been doing this for decades now, and shows little signs of stopping!
Why He’s an Incredible Speaker
The stories that Sir Ranulph, global inspirational speaker, can tell you are completely unique. They’re not tales of everyday life and, in fact, they’re usually stories recounting places or events that few have ever had the chance to experience! His incredible life has also given him an outlook on the world which is tangible in his talks; one of great positivity and a desire to share the wonders this world has to offer, embracing leadership, teamwork and goal setting. His nature, too, is one that would be welcome at any event. Kind and honest, yet funny and incredibly easy to talk to, we can’t recommend Sir Ranulph Fiennes speaker enough.
