The SES is delighted to announce that Grand Slam Explorer Newall Hunter will be the SES@GauchoCity speaker in March 2018 and will give a talk about The Science of Successful Expeditions on Tuesday 27 March 2018 at the Gaucho (City), London.

Newall Hunter 270318Newall Hunter FRGS is a Scottish adventurer and engineer who, in 2016, became the first Scot and one of only 15 people in the world to complete the full Adventurers’ Grand Slam - climbing the highest mountains of each of the seven continents and reaching both Poles. Newall will discuss his thoughts on how successful adventures are more science than art and why good planning, field testing and reconnaissance are essential to successful expeditions. He will also share outstanding photographs and tales of the pleasures and pitfalls (both technical and cultural) of operating, often solo, in predominantly cold and remote terrain.

As well as talking about the Adventurers’ Grand Slam, Newall will talk abou it and show photos of his many other incredible adventures and use of pioneering technology. Newall is one of Scotland’s leading adventurers and is also a technical mentor for SES. For more information about Newall, please visit his website by CLICKING HERE
