Global perspectives guest speaker - Peter Hillary

You will have the opportunity to travel and explore with Peter Hillary, son of Sir Edmund Hillary, who will join us as a Global Perspectives guest speaker on this expedition. Peter will share his wealth of experiences gained from more than 40 mountaineering expeditions, including one where he was the sole survivor of a storm that claimed seven other climbers at more than 26,000 feet on K2, the world’s second highest mountain. Hear him in the context of his lounge talks, but also to spend time with him and other members of staff-while cruising in a Zodiac, over a drink, or during dinner.
