About the Event

Journey alongside 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Mike Libecki to some of the most remote regions of the world. Mike is fearless in the face of daunting challenges, such as climbing the largest unclimbed peak in Antarctica or paddling through 80 miles of sea ice to come face-to-face with the world’s largest carnivore. He’s on a quest to complete 100 expeditions by the time he’s 100—and he’s nearly there. His infectious drive to make the most of every day offers us a unique perspective on the magic, power, and beauty of our planet.

About the Speaker

A National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Dell Ambassador, and Adidas athlete, Mike Libecki has completed more than 85 major global expeditions with the personal goal of 100. He has summited peaks in Afghanistan to Antarctica, Greenland to Guyana, Siberia to Socotra Island to Yemen, and everywhere in between, paddling with polar bears and climbing the highest peak of Antarctica on his “joyineering” expeditions. He has trekked with his daughter, Lilliana, to all seven continents, including Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, the peaks of Nepal and Peru, polar bear territory in the high Arctic, and the bottom of the Earth, where they skied alongside penguins. Additionally, Mike produces, directs, and films his incredible expeditions using next-level virtual reality headsets and technology to bring his stories to life and transport audiences to these far-flung corners of the globe.
