Booking George for your event means taking your audience on an enthralling journey of courage, resilience, and tenacity. His ability to connect with audiences, coupled with his adventures and lessons learned, provides a unique perspective on life and business. His talks inspire individuals to push their boundaries, embrace the unknown and harness the power of teamwork. He is the ideal speaker for those looking to infuse an element of adventure and self-discovery into their events.

George’s remarkable early feats were eternalised by the world’s greatest living explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who described his achievements as “genuinely ground breaking” – and that was when George was just 19 years old. By this time he had already swum the English Channel, at 14 years old, before completing the world’s longest unsupported polar journey in history before his twentieth birthday.

Over the last decade George’s achievements have continued to astonish. Since setting the bar reasonably high following his debut record, the 113-day polar journey that remains unbeaten to this day, George has continued to go from strength to strength. From leading expeditions, to travelling, trekking, touring, sailing and swimming his way through some of the most extreme conditions on Earth, George maintains a penchant for inhospitable conditions. Most notably completing another world first by kayaking across the North Atlantic Ocean, remaining at sea for 66 days.

George takes pride in his achievements however he remains grounded and uncomplacent, preferring to be thankful for past experiences and recognising the part that luck had to play in his significant successes.

George Bullard is a world record breaking explorer, endurance athlete and speaker. He believes that through the outdoors we can change lives. His mission is to reconnect us with nature

Described by Ran Feinnes as “genuinely groundbreaking” and by Bear Grylls as “total respect”, George has claimed a few accolades.

To date, he has covered almost 2,000 miles on foot in the polar regions, spending more than 26,000 hours in isolation. If you believe Gladwell’s 10,000 hour rule, that makes him a master of remote, hostile environments.

At 14 years old, George was part of a team that swam the English Channel. Before turning 17, he’d swum the length of Lake Zurich, circumnavigated Barbados and New York’s Manhattan Island. During this time George was also ranked #1 in the UK for Tetrathlon.

At the age of 19 George completed the world’s longest fully unsupported polar journey, 1374 miles on foot. A feat described by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the world’s greatest living explorer, as “genuinely ground-breaking”. Since then, George’s expeditions have included the archipelago of South Georgia, cycling across Europe, climbing as yet unnamed summits, driving North-West Africa and sailing the Southern, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. George has guided over 350 people of all ages in the Amazon rainforest, the Indian subcontinent, Greenland Icecap and Svalbard.

September 2016 saw George complete a second world first; 66 days in a kayak crossing the ferocious North Atlantic Ocean from Greenland to Scotland. The purpose? To test the theory that Inuits may have made the same journey in AD1700.

In 2021 George ran 630 miles along the South West Coast Path. A challenge designed to raise money for charity and encourage people outside post global pandemic. The route required him climb 35,000m of ascent, 4 times the height of Everest, over rocky coastal terrain.

In 2022, George crossed his 5th ocean. This has given him a unique insight into the planets oceans, winds and most importantly, pollution

Not everyone needs to tackle the worlds most hostile environments for an adventure. Everyone has their own Everest. George hopes to encourage people to understand that adventures will give them something that nobody else can.
