Talk: Neil Laughton - Adventureholic

July 18, 2024

Neil Laughton is a former Royal Marine Commando, helicopter pilot and Special Forces Officer who went on to become one of the world's greatest adventurers and a multiple Guinness World Record breaker.

He has organised and led more than 50 expeditions on seven continents – by land, sea and air. His amazing adventures include piloting the world’s first road legal flying car on a 10,000 km journey from London to Timbuktu; crossing the Sahara desert on KTM motorcycles; a 1,000 km journey across the spine of the Himalayas on Royal Enfields; circumnavigating the UK & Ireland on a jet ski;  summiting Mt Everest with Bear Grylls, and skiing to both the north and south poles.

He organised and led Flying for Heroes, a 1,000 km flying journey in Paratrikes from Mt Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) to Mt Kenya with wounded soldiers from the Help 4 Heros charity, and he has recently taken part in a humanitarian mission to Ukraine.

Neil’s book ‘Adventureholic – Extraordinary journeys on seven continents by land, sea and air’ was published in 2023 and became an Amazon No. 1 bestseller.

Neil is a once-heard-never-forgotten speaker with a fascinating and inspirational presentation.
