Sir Ranulph Fiennes delivers talk at Milton Park on overcoming challenges for Planet It

Published on: 29/05/2019

World famous British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes visited Milton Park and delivered an inspirational talk at a prestigious business event hosted by IT company Planet IT.


‘Overcoming Challenges with Sir Ranulph Fiennes & Planet IT’ took place at the Courtyard by Marriott.  Sir Ranulph treated guests to a talk focusing on some of the adventures he has faced, and the challenges he has overcome.


Best known for crossing both the Arctic and Antarctic, and conquering the North and South Poles, he also completed the gruelling Marathon des Sables at the age of 71.


Planet IT also teamed up with Dell EMC, and talked about the challenging IT threat landscape for business.


Gavin Jones, Planet IT director, said: “Sir Ranulph’s talk was inspiring and gave our guests and team plenty of food for thought.”


Sean Smith, Planet IT director, said: “By combining Sir Ranulph’s experience in over-coming challenges as an adventurer with how we solve IT challenges in business, the event was fascinating and delivered real value to our guests.”
