Polar explorer & adventurer Dwayne Fields shares his inspirational story at Great British Speakers
Dwayne has spent time in Egypt living with the Bedouins in the Sinai Desert. While in the desert, he learned survival techniques and develop navigation skills using the stars.
In 2011, he was invited to join HRH Queen Elizabeth and other Polar explorers, adventurers, and achievers at a royal reception at Buckingham Palace to mark the centenary of Scott's 100th year anniversary of his expedition to the South Pole.
Dwayne has made appearances on ITV1, London Tonight, BBC Breakfast, Choice FM and featured in the Metro, the Independent and The Telegraph. He was also interviewed on the Daily Politics Show.
Dwayne has held motivational talks at Westminster College and a Keynote speaker at the students' graduation. He has also presented his top keynote for the law firm, Slaughter & May, presented the Rudolph Walker Foundation’s ‘Role Model Award’ and presented as Keynote Speaker for the Southwark Academy’s student award ceremony 10th anniversary.
Dwayne is the youngest black person in history to be awarded the Freedom of the city of London for his endeavours and work with young people.
Dwayne’s latest ambition is to journey to the South Pole. His solo adventure will take him from Hercules Inlet to the Geographic South Pole, a distance of over 1150 kilometres (730 miles) where he will be negotiating multiple crevasses, crossing snow bridges and making an ascent from Sea Level to approximately 3,330 meters near the South Pole.
With winds up to 80mph, temperatures as low as -50C and the threat of blinding snowstorms, this is the ultimate extreme endurance test, set in the stunning landscape of one of the coldest and highest 'deserts 'on the planet.
He is also working on his biography Far From Myself.
