Ben Fogle


Ben first appeared on the groundbreaking BBC millennium project Castaway, in which a very diverse group of volunteers spent a year marooned on the island of Taransay in the Outer Hebrides. Fogle has gone onto to forge a highly successful career as a TV Presenter, working with some of the largest production and broadcasting companies in the world.

Ben led teams of would-be explorers on the journey of a lifetime for the television series of Extreme Dreams and Extreme Andes, testing the participants in some of the worlds harshest conditions and environments. Ben’s other on screen credits comprise of Countryfile, Animal Park, recording Prince William’s visit to Botswana and a month spent in Scott’s hut in the Antarctic. Ben is a consummate professional as a TV Presenter, proving testament to the constant demand he experiences.

One of Ben’s most famous challenges occurred when he teamed up with Olympic oarsman James Cracknell, to participate in the Woodvale Atlantic Rowing Race. The pair navigated nearly 3000 miles of dangerous water between San Sebastien and Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua.

As a leadership speaker, Ben discusses the teamwork needed to achieve this feat and the importance of relationships in businesses. The toll the adventure took on both Ben and James was severe, battling both physical and psychological trials as they faced hurricanes, being capsized and the loss of their water maker. Struggling with sheer loneliness, the pair fought, wept, hallucinated and nursed their blisters and aches whilst still managing to set a British record.

Both a book and film were produced to document this epic adventure. After this epic undertaking, Ben and James have raced to the South Pole as well as riding from Edinburgh to London non-stop on a Rickshaw. Ben’s talks as an after dinner speaker focus on determination, drive and what it takes be maintain and maximise success. Equally adept as an event host, Ben’s approachable and humorous delivery ensures your audience remain entertained whilst your event runs on time and to plan
