Over the last 7 years, Chris has been the pioneer of overland and endurance electric vehicle adventures, and through engaging media content, has taken audiences across continents and through 23 countries on a series of epic world firsts. Chris is best know for being the worlds first person to tackle and finish the 10,000 mile Mongol Rally adventure in his Nissan LEAF electric car back in 2017, which saw him drive from London to Siberia, crossing two-thirds of the planet in just 56 days.
In 2014, Chris achieved an unofficial UK record when he drove 887miles, from John O’Groats to Land End in an electric car in 26hours, beating the previous time set in a Tesla by 4 hours. Convinced his own time was beatable, after a short break, he turned round, drove back, and beat it by 2.5hours.
In 2016, Chris set out to test the European EV charging infrastructure, by driving 2551miles from Edinburgh to Monte Carlo and back in under 60hrs. A feat made more challenging by the fact he was driving an electric car with a 60mile range. He accomplished this challenge with over 2hours to spare.
In 2018, swapping four wheels for two, Chris smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest distance covered on an electric bicycle in 12hours when he completed 177.81miles, breaking the previous record by 67miles.
Drawing from his experiences and extraordinary pioneering form of adventure, Chris is able to bring audiences into his world and take them out the other side with knowledge of how they can translate what he has learnt into their own life. With a message of sustainability, motivation, successful project management and putting themselves out of their comfort zone, Chris will leave audiences feeling motivated, driven and ready to tackle the challenges they face in life. Chris is also an accomplished technology speaker, regularly speaking at tech events about the latest developments in the energy storage, connected mobility, global charging infrastructure and the world of electric vehicles.
