Sir Ranulph Fiennes is the keynote speaker at the awards, the region’s premier business event, which takes place at the Norfolk Showground on Thursday November 5.

The record-breaking adventurer will be talking about living dangerously and how lessons learned from performaing under pressure can be applied to business.

Sir Ranulph is the first person to reach both North and South Poles by foot.

He also made it into the record books by completing seven marathons on seven continents (including Antarctica) in seven days – soon after receiving emergency heart surgery. Only then did he take up climbing, starting with the North Face of the Eiger.

At the age of 65, at his third attempt, he became the oldest Briton to conquer Everest.

This year’s marks the 25th anniversary of the EDP Business Awards and the night will celebrate previous Business of the Year winners with a special one-off award presented to one of them by Business of the Year sponsor Barclays.

Tickets cost £120 + VAT. To book, call 01603 772371 or email Stephanie.griffin@archant.co.uk
