GUEST SPEAKER – Kevin Biggar – Adventurer!

Kevin Biggar, Global Adventurer

Kevin Biggar was a strategy consultant with The Boston Consulting Group when he decided to take part in the world’s toughest endurance event – the Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race. This requires rowing a 7m plywood dinghy, 5,000 km between the Canary Islands and Barbados.

Kevin then took on an even more audacious challenge – the first ever unsupported trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole and back.
