Jim McNeill

Jim McNeill is one of the world’s most experienced and respected explorers and has clocked up over 30 years of expeditioning in the world’s most remote and harshest environments.

Unlike most explorers he comes from a very humble background, being born and brought up on a council estate in north London and firmly believes that if he can achieve what he has done to date, then most people can, too.

Jim is lucky enough to have clocked up over 30 years of polar expeditioning; thousands of miles mostly on skis and dragging his world him, which has given him a huge breadth and depth of experience in surviving and working in extreme environments. In 2001, he founded the “Ice Warrior Project” that gives “ordinary” people the chance to become polar explorers, achieving extraordinary feats of endurance for the betterment of humankind.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Excellent – very engaging, very relaxed style, with a good level of humour. Jim talked about overcoming adversity by working a as a team, but also respecting each other as individuals and working with their strengths to help them and the team achieve why this was important. The audience were very captivated and energised – lots of questions at the end and I’m sure the questions would have kept coming if we had the time. Jim was very happy to stay and chat to people at the end, a very approachable person who is obviously very passionate about what he does which very much came across in his presentation. I think a few people were even tempted to find out how to be part of one of his expeditions.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Jim McNeill’s presentation to the Captain Scott Society on the subject of his “Ice Warrior” endeavours was colourful and entertaining but most of all it was thought provoking. Jim gave an honest and unsentimental view of the difficulties he faced in his quest for the four North Poles and also a clear assessment of how global warming is changing the face and nature of the Arctic. The extraordinary images used to good effect during the presentation were graphic, evocative and often dramatic. The knowledge Jim has acquired of the Arctic was obvious and allowed him to speak with authority and assurance.
