As genuine travel has become easier and easier, true adventure has inevitably become ever more elusive.
Enter Lucy Shepherd.
Shepherd is the real deal and at the forefront of modern exploration. From mountain ranges to tropical rainforests, to the Arctic tundra, she is plotting a thrilling, inimitable path for herself.
Her message? “Adventure is a mindset, not a moment.”
Aged just twenty-three, Lucy was made a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society for her ground-breaking exploration work, and she is also the youngest member of the council of the Scientific Exploration Society, one of the world’s oldest exploration charities.
Lucy made a mark on the global stage after successfully completing her recent jungle expedition across an isolated part of the Amazon. Lucy and her team of indigenous Amerindians spent 50 days moving through uncharted and untouched jungle, facing dangers every single day.
Lucy’s thrilling accounts of her adventures show clear resilience but what is surprising is how her leadership has developed over the years. Lucy is determined to prove that we are all capable of being resilient and taking on hurdles and challenges that we may have thought were impossible in the past.
Although still young, Lucy has more stories to tell than most manage in a lifetime.
Lucy’s inspirational and adrenaline filled talk provides both motivation and escapism. Lucy Shepherd discusses multiple topics within her epic tales and her leadership and teamwork skillset comes across throughout. Her key messages woven within her talk are the ability to face adversity head on, the importance of embracing the unknown and the tools required to have an explorer’s mindset.
With an ever-growing media profile, many places left to visit, and millions still to educate, you can be certain that she will continue to be a vital presence on the world stage for decades to come.
“Fantastic 45 minutes spent today with Lucy Shepherd. Lucy provided some much needed respite and positivity by giving us a taste of her world of intrepid exploration and travel. Thank you Lucy for giving all of us a peek into your world.”
Marissa Thomas, Member of Management Board, PwC UK
“Lucy came to speak to our team at IG and had everyone on the edge of their seats talking about her exciting adventures – so much so that I’m a little worried everyone wants to leave to become an adventurer too! Lucy is great at drawing parallels between her experience and challenges that others face in their day to day lives. I’d highly recommend using her as a speaker and would be very keen to book her again in the future.”
Louis Bridget, Head of UK, IG Group
"Lucy is exceptional in telling stories and I learned so much. She brought out many insights and practical points of view that we can act on. So inspiring and what we need at this time to reconnect with what’s possible.”
