Public Speaking and Presentations

Julian Monroe Fisher is an explorer and anthropologist. He has led numerous expeditions around the globe to include four Explorers Club Flag expeditions in the last four consecutive years.

Julian’s talks reflect the last twenty years of his life, some of the most extraordinary expeditions that have led him to over ninety countries on five continents. His tales from on the surface has the audience on the edge of their seats as he recalls his days when he was an international radio correspondent filing on-air ‘live’ reports from far distant points around the globe, the years that he lived in a Maya thatch hut in Southern Belize as well as his expeditions to Africa since 2007.

The stories, the excitements, the logistical nightmares, the frustrations and the motivation behind it all.
