Mark Wood aims to communicate globally with schools around the planet to have open discussions with students about climate change, cultural differences, and thinking differently about life.

Mark Wood’s own award winning documentaries have shown the life of dog teams in Alaska – a solo survival film in the extremes and more recently a complex cutting edge expedition film which explains the harsh reality of global warming and its effect on the Arctic Ocean as his team crossed to the North Pole.

Mark Wood shares his experiences through his leadership talks and focuses on the many similarities between the difficult challenges faced by organisations today and the challenges faced by explorers in very dangerous and hostile regions. Mark is able to deliver a highly thought provoking, inspirational and motivating speech to his audiences.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Mark Wood is a natural story teller, as well as being an explorer, who has true stories of adventure, bravery and global journeys. He captivated both the children and the adults at the children’s university graduation ceremony, everyone felt honoured to be sitting in the same room with him. I think we were all hoping that some of his qualities might rub off on us! Intelligent, thoughtful and topical issues were raised together with his sense of humour, leaving us thoroughly entertained and educated. The children were given the opportunity to ask Mark Wood questions at the end and were queuing up to be photographed with him. Just one of the many comments we received was that the evening ‘was phenomenal’. I recommend everyone to keep an eye on him to see what he is up to next!
