What schools say about Tim

“Millfield School had the pleasure of welcoming Tim Jarvis for one of the best Upper Sixth Lectures we have ever hosted. His amazing story, combining a resilience few of us can imagine with walking and sailing in the footsteps of Shackleton, was truly awe-inspiring. The delivery of the content taught our students the value of preparation, never giving in against considerable odds, and at the same time relaying to his young audience the real and present danger of global warming. Brilliantly illustrated with film taken on the journey and artefacts from the expedition, the audience was captivated and enthralled. He is welcome back anytime!” Millfield School, UK

“It was great honour to have Tim Jarvis as the Keynote speaker in the Round Square International Conference 2015. Tim’s clear, engaging call to action set the perfect tone for a Conference whose theme was ‘Act today Change Tomorrow’. It is a tribute to Tim’s advocacy skills that he can both inspire through his stories of gritty determination and almost super-human efforts while still retaining a humble, friendly eagerness to discussing action plans with groups of children. Tim never pretends to know all the answers and is just as engaging when talking about his mistakes, fears and struggles as his many successes. Indeed this has the effect of empowering children to believe they can achieve their goals as he leaves them with not only a sense of urgency but also an understanding that the world and its future is theirs to shape and explore.” United World College SEA, Singapore

“Tim delivered a fascinating and inspirational lecture to our IGCSE and 6th form geographers. His talk was richly illustrated with videos and photos of his expeditions and he spoke engagingly about the challenges he has faced and the resilience needed to overcome these. As an environmental scientist and geomorphologist, his talk was also academic and well-pitched at our Geography students who left with a clear understanding of the impact of climate change on glacial regions.” Godolphin & Latymer School, UK

“Tim came to our school and gave a fascinating presentation about the Shackleton experience. The students were taken not only by the expedition, but also by Tim’s commitment and dedication to preserving our planet. We hope that he comes back soon!” International School of Geneva, Switzerland
