Our Global Perspectives Guest Speaker program, exclusively on every National Geographic Explorer expedition, pairs engaging, knowledgeable experts with fascinating geographies to enrich your experience, and add extra levels of perspective and insight to our expedition team’s expertise. Taken from the top tiers of world affairs, journalism and exploration, these are people that you might have seen on TV talk shows, or in a lecture hall—suddenly available to you in person. Each global speaker has chosen to voyage with us to be part of the expedition community, to go exploring along with our staff and guests, and to provide perspectives to enhance your overall experience. You’ll share adventures, drinks, dinner, deck time and activities with these intriguing individuals.
