"Getting out in to the back country with 5th was a phenomenal way to defrag from the norm and provided fertile ground for seeds of adventure to grow. The balance of risk, adventure and survival forces you to appreciate the things otherwise taken for granted, creating a healthy reset."
"I've learnt heaps. It's given me a lot more confidence to get out in the snow and have some fun. It's been a great experience. Absolutely splendid."
"Fantastic. Sore, tired but so, so worth it. Prime conditions and so much fun. Training has been excellent. It's covered everything I would need to know to to venture out somewhere like Antarctica."
"It's been awesome. Wilder than I expected. I've felt so grateful to be surrounded by such beauty."
"It’s been an absolute blast! Living in Australia you don't get a lot of opportunity to experience conditions like this. It opens a lot of doors for adventure in my own world. I'm excited to see what's to come."
"I came here thinking I wouldn’t get much out of it because I’m not an adventurer and I’ll never do the things Geoff’s done. But his presentation and his inspirational words are relevant to everyone’s life. He just makes you feel you can go on, no matter what life throws at you."
"Geoff’s talk was life changing and his ‘all in’ approach is going to stay with me. If he can cross Antarctica, I can conquer my own challenges. I attend business breakfasts each month and he’s certainly the most inspiring and absorbing speaker I’ve seen."
"Excellent presentation – informative, entertaining and a fantastic story, which is very applicable to the current business climate. Geoff has some good messages for people in business. Highly recommended."
"It’s the transferability of his experience because as entrepreneurs we’re all explorers. And, it was almost an experiential speech. I actually felt myself getting cold when he turned down the lights and asked us to listen to the sounds of the life-threatening storm he experienced in Antarctica."
"Geoff is a naturally inspiring speaker. Not with all the clichés, but with that raw passion and energy of actually having done it."
"Thoroughly enjoyed it. I was literally on the edge of my seat. And, it was real! Geoff’s easy to listen to. He’s done extraordinary things, but he’s an ordinary guy so you feel a connection to him."
"Absolutely sensational. Highly motivating. Unique. Geoff has a message for everyone, not just elite sporting teams."
"Men like Geoff don’t come around every year and his feat is all the more extraordinary as it was totally unsupported. Geoff had no physical assistance from a single person for 53 days, relying solely on his own resourcefulness and the wind to cross Antarctica from one side to the other."
"If you want to know how to live in the wild, this is the place to be. If you want to know what life is, come along and do it. I can highly recommend this to anyone."
"What an inspirational man. He gave me goose bumps. We see a lot of speakers at Palazzo Versace but Geoff has a very different style. Amazing!"
"It's been life changing actually. I knew I would get something out of it initially but it's been nothing like I could have imagined. I'll be back for sure."
