Alastair Humphreys

Adventurer & Author

Alastair Humphreys is a highly regarded explorer, who has taken on some of the toughest challenges in some of the most hostile environments in the world. His extraordinary 46,000 mile cycling journey around the world through 60 countries and 5 continents was described by legendary explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes as ‘the first great adventure of the new millennium.’ As an after dinner speaker and motivational speaker, Alastair recounts what is needed to overcome adversity and achieve peak performance in order to succeed with such tough challenges.

In more recent explorations, Alastair has rowed across the Atlantic, rowed to France with Major Phil Packer, followed the holy Kaveri River across the entirety of Southern India, ran the Marathon des Sables and crossed Iceland by foot and packraft only. Delivering tales from his extensive travels during talks as a motivational speaker, Alastair has addressed hundreds of audiences with his remarkable feats.

In 2011, Alastair created the term ‘microadventure’, to define the promotion of small and inexpensive explorations that you can start close to home. This term is now frequently used in social media as a popular hashtag. Alastair’s inspirational and motivational approach to his talks as an after dinner speaker portrays his true passion for encouraging others. The powerful lessons he has learnt during his adventures and explorations can teach resilience, risk consideration and human potential.

Alastair’s belief that people can break down distant dreams in achievable goals whilst conquering self doubt and facing fears inspires confidence and captivates his audiences. Alastair can also relate to a library of wonderful photographs as a motivational speaker to highlight the scale of his achievements.

‘Alastair spoke recently to a group of very senior Marketing VPs and CMOs at a Google event. He did a wonderful job of engaging and inspiring the audience with them hanging on his every word for 30 minutes. He was equally comfortable presenting to his amazing photographs or handling a range of questions. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for a corporate audience.’ – Google
