Pen Hadow brings to life his personal mission to become the first person to trek solo without resupply by third parties, from Canada to the North Geographic Pole: undisputedly the toughest route.
Pen inspires audiences as he shares the challenges, setbacks, risks and key lessons learned with humour, passion and impact. Pen’s love of exploration is infectious and he actively encourages others to push back their limits. He has enabled many to achieve their Polar ambitions.
Pen devised and organised the first all women’s expedition to the North Pole, where twenty women with no previous polar experience, led by professional women guides, walked into the Guinness Book of Records. Pen founded Geo Mission, a pioneering environmental sponsorship organisation that delivered the multi-award winning series of Catlin Arctic Surveys (2009-11).
Pen advises companies on upgrading and communicating their environmental credentials and the importance of environmental responsibility.
