Richard Weber Speaking

Richard Weber first stepped on to the Arctic ocean in 1986. Since then, during his seven North Pole (and two South Pole expeditions) he has logged more time walking on the ice than anyone in history. His personal system of goal-seting and preparation that lead to the achievement of world firsts in polar exploration can be transfered to the corporate world. His expedition stories are unique, but perhaps what is more remarkable is his first hand view of climate change. Based on his personal observations, the Arctic Ocean is a completely different place today than it was twenty five years ago. Equally striking is the fact that during the ten summers he has been at Arctic Watch Lodge, the environment has also changed. While we hear in the media that the world’s climate is changing, it is hard to see it in our day to day lives. 

Richard is available to speak, supported with video and images his topics are listed below.
