Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the oldest person ever to summit Everest and cross both polar ice caps, has today been confirmed as keynote speaker for MHR’s exclusive HR Director’s meeting, to be held at Claridge’s on 12 June 2018.
After a childhood in South Africa, Ranulph returned to the UK to follow in his father’s tracks from Eton to the Royal Scots Grey regiment. He became the youngest Captain in the British Army. He is the first person to receive from the Queen a double clasp medal to his Polar award, each of which acknowledges both Arctic and Antarctic achievements. Ranulph’s adventures have raised millions for various charities, earning him an OBE for Human Endeavour and Charitable Services.
At MHR’s HR Directors Club meeting, Ranulph will be covering his mountaineering exploits, challenges and achievements.
John Mills, Chairman and Founder of MHR says: “We are delighted to have confirmed Sir Ranulph Fiennes as speaker for our sixth HR Directors event in June. The high profile speakers that we secure for these exclusive meetings are inspirational experts in their field, and Sir Ranulph is no exception. He has a rich past on which to draw from and I’m sure that our audience of high profile business leaders and HR professionals attending the event will be able to gain tremendous insight from his exhilarating experiences.”
