Often described as “television’s most fearless man”, Benedict is an extremely popular after-dinner and motivational speaker. His exceptional talent for applying his pioneering expeditions to the corporate ‘jungle’ ensures an enthralling, entertaining and inspirational experience for any size of audience.
Benedict's presentations show how over twenty years he has achieved his goals by remaining focused and utterly committed to his final objective, surviving adversity in the harshest of environments around the world. His extraordinary record of success demonstrates the importance of drawing upon the resources within and around us and also the value of teamwork - the Amazon jungle, just like the corporate world, is too big to fight alone.
Using his formidable experience of surviving against the odds, whether in creating an Arctic dog team from scratch at minus 45 degrees, crossing the 3,600 mile Amazon Basin without a map, or undergoing the world's harshest male initiation ceremony to become "a man as strong as a crocodile," Benedict gives a stunning demonstration of how we can succeed in our own jungles back home.
