Presenter Profile

Simon P travel adventure journalist at Great British Presenters

Simon is a 30-year-old foreign correspondent and travel writer who often reports from over 40 countries a year for the BBC, The Telegraph and The Independent. He has sailed and cycled from China to London, scaled the highest peaks in the Andes, stared down charging black rhinos in Namibia and documented the impact of climate change in Svalbard. His new TV project, Earth Cycle, is currently being broadcast in over a dozen countries around the world.

Motivational speaker, panel discussion chair and event host, Simon has reported from over half the countries on Earth – and all within the first ten years of his career as a journalist.

He has been to some of the most extreme corners of the planet; from the high Andes and the centre of the North Pacific, to the driest deserts of Southern Africa and the frozen glaciers of the Arctic Circle.

In 2016 Simon sailed and cycled from China to London in 133 days – racing with and against the Round the World Yacht Race, for a BBC Radio documentary and Daily Telegraph series.

Simon has been stationed in South America for the BBC, hiked every possible route to Machu Picchu and as a fully-qualified paragliding pilot, flown solo through the Colombian Andes.

He is a TEDx speaker and has served as a panel chair at the prestigious Front Line Club, London.
