Information Presentation about our North Pole Expeditions
1400hrs Friday 19th June 2015
How you can sign up, train and prepare for an expedition to the Geographic North Pole!
We invite you to come to the prestigious Royal Geographical Society for an information presentation by celebrated polar guide Alan Chambers MBE.
Alan is a polar adventurer who received the MBE for ‘exceptional leadership in extreme adversity’ when he led the first successful unsupported British expedition to the Geographic North Pole, walking 672 nautical miles in temperatures as low as -65°C dragging a sledge the weight of a baby elephant. In preparation for his expedition Alan lived with a family of Inuits, indigenous to the Arctic for between 1 and 2 months every year for 5 years. Alan has since led top business leaders & chief executives to the North Pole in virtually every North Pole season since 2002. The North Pole challenge helped them explore and reflect on their own leadership capabilities.
During our meeting on 19th June Alan will give a PowerPoint presentation about our North Pole Expeditions and enable you to really understand what is involved in joining one of our Polar expeditions. The April 2016 and April 2017 polar expeditions will be of approximately 14 days including flights. We shall also tell you about an opportunity to go on a short trip to the Arctic Circle in March 2016 and experience what it is like to be on a North Pole expedition.
Jeremy Gane from Gane and Marshall and Simon Albert from Charity Challenge will also be on hand to answer your questions. Jeremy Gane FRGS, and also a director of Charity Challenge, has been researching and developing North Pole expeditions with Alan and Simon for the last five years. Gane and Marshall has teamed up with Charity Challenge to offer these exclusive North Pole expeditions, guided by Alan Chambers.
The Information Day will take place on Friday 19th June 2015 from 1400hrs to 1630hrs in the Lowther Room at the Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. We have arranged for the main presentation to run from 1430-1515hrs, tea and coffee will be served from 1400hrs.
