Keep Turning Left’s Dylan Winter is a thought-provoking and very funny raconteur among his other talents, and is to speak at a Hope and Homes for Children charity fundraiser in London on Monday 11th March.
The event is said to be a get-together of the world’s top explorers and daredevils for one night only to share their experiences with a live audience. Each speaker will be limited to 20 slides, and each slide will scroll forward automatically after just 20 seconds.
I’d say speaking to a schedule like this must be quite a challenge, but this appearance will be in the nature of an update, because he’s done it before, and very effectively.
The event is organised and hosted by adventurer Alastair Humphreys, who recently walked 1,000 miles across the Arabian Peninsula in the Rub’ al Khali Desert. Other speakers include Mike Hall, who holds the world cycle record in 2012 after taking 91 days to cover 18,000 miles, adventurer Ian Packham, who became the first person to travel solo and unsupported round Africa by public transport.
