For 35 years the EXPLORE weekend at the Royal Geographical Society has been the incubator and supporter of exploration. Across the years, 1000s of expeditions undertaken by the young and intrepid have taken shape, found support and set off from what is often described as the epee-center of global exploration…. The Royal Geographical Society.
I'm proud to say I have been a Fellow of the society for almost 16 years now. In my mind, the EXPLORE weekend is my favorite date in the calendar. Its as if the event acts like a people magnet, drawing in the intrepid. Strolling the oak paneled corridors of this iconic venue is a wonder in itself... but brushing shoulders with those who view the world with wonder and want to know more is is the real joy of Explore... In a strange way, everyone who attends has, or is about to, put a pin in a map, set themselves on a path towards something extraordinary. Standing on stage, as I started my lecture, I couldn't help imaging those pathways fanning out from the crowded theatre across the globe. A multitude of journeys yet to be...Inquisitive minds heading out across mountains, jungles, deserts, oceans and icy landscapes.... It was a wonderful vision in my minds eye... if only i could have articulated it!
High Tech Exploration:
My talk: a high speed introduction to 'High-Tech, Low Cost Expeditions' and how today, more than ever, I feel technology can be used to dramatic enhance your en-devours, help communicate discoveries and enrich your story.
I uploaded this with a recording of the talk attached but sadly this service doesn't support it... For more details contact me email@example.com
