George Bullard is a world record-breaking explorer and endurance athlete. To date he has covered more than 2000 miles on foot in the polar regions and completed 14 extraordinary expeditions around the world, guiding over 300 people. All this after starting his career in finance and finding what he calls his passion for the outdoors and exploration.
At the age of 19 George achieved a feat that explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes described as ‘genuinely ground-breaking’, completing the world’s longest fully unsupported polar journey. It hasn’t always been easy, however – when in 2011 George was left leading a team of young explorers and his friend was mauled to death by a polar bear – he had to deal with the situation quickly and protect his team. George speaks openly of this experience and what he learnt.
He has gone on to excel as an explorer and endurance athlete sailing in the TransAtlantic race, leading youth development programmes in the Amazon and facilitating scientific research expeditions in Antarctica. George is passionate about encouraging others to embark on their own adventures, embrace their strengths, overcome their weaknesses, and confront the challenge of the ‘unthinkable’.
George has been delivering talks for a range of audience members, from schools to investment banks – George discusses the importance of taking a calculated risk, experiencing failure and setting goals.
