In Detail

After a lifelong fascination about the adventures of Captain Scott, in 2002 Tom achieved his childhood dream and completed the perilous journey to the South Pole. In 2005 Tom and his five-strong team electrified the exploration world by recreating Peary and Henson's controversial 1909 expedition to the North Pole, travelling with teams of Eskimo dogs and replica wooden sledges. After an epic dash across the most unforgiving environment on the planet, Tom's exhausted team rewrote the history books by making it to the Pole with only four hours to spare. More than a decade on, they remain the fastest team in history to reach the North Pole. A further Guinness World Record followed in 2015, when Tom led the fastest coast-to-coast crossing of Greenland, a challenge often referred to as the Third Pole. Tom is a passionate environmentalist, having witnessed first-hand the melting of our frozen world.


As the founder of Ski Verbier Exclusive, one of the world's leading luxury ski companies. This combination makes Tom a truly unique speaker, enabling him to relate directly to corporate audiences and to subtly draw out key lessons from both the expedition and business worlds.
