Ex-school teacher, now Outward Bound Oman Executive Director Mark Evans MBE will speak about his 49 day expedition, on foot and by camel across the largest sand desert on earth, the Empty Quarter of Arabia, the first such crossing since 1931.
Backed by four of the most influential people on earth, the journey was much more than a celebration of historic achievement, it was a demonstration of resilience that inspired more than 160 million people globally via BBC World Service, Sky News, The Smithsonian and The Explorers Club New York, to believe that they were all capable of more than they realized ….
Mark will share the highs and lows of the journey, and the role of it, and his next expedition in developing our understanding of how to optimize human performance in extreme situations.
