The global speaker bureau
Benedict Allen, one of Britain's most prominent explorers, is best known for his arduous expeditions to remote corners of the globe without the help of any technology back-up and surviving against all the odds in adverse conditions. By not using a film-crew and pioneering the use of a hand-held video camera, he allowed millions of people around the world to witness for the first time adventures unfolding genuinely in inhospitable terrain and has paved the way for the current generation of TV adventurers.

After a short stay at University of Aberdeen he undertook his first independent expedition, a crossing from the mouth of the Orinoco to the mouth of the Amazon.
