At this luncheon, sponsored by TMF Group, we are delighted to welcome The World’s Greatest Living Explorer (as named by the Guinness Book of World Records) Sir Ranulph Fiennes as our special guest.

From conquering Mount Everest to raising millions for charity, Sir Ranulph has overcome significant obstacles and accomplished extraordinary things over the course of his remarkable career. Now he has embarked on his latest expedition - The Global Reach Challenge. With only three summits to go, he aims to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and navigate the seven summits.

Join us for what is sure to be a thrilling afternoon of stories from adventures then and now.
