Ben Fogle announced as guest speaker for Capacity Awards 2014

British travel broadcaster Ben Fogle has been revealed as the guest speaker for Capacity’s Global Carrier Awards 2014.

Fogle will be speaking and presenting awards to members of the global wholesale telecoms industry in Amsterdam on November 4 2014, and follows in the footsteps of past speakers, astronaut Dr Ulrich Walter and explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

As well as presenting a number of TV programmes on the BBC, ITV and Channel 5, Fogle regularly writes for the Sunday Telegraph and is an ambassador for the WWF, Medecins Sans Frontier and Tusk.

Like Fiennes, Fogle is an intrepid explorer, and has completed feats such as rowing the Atlantic, crossing Antarctica on foot, running across the Sahara and crossing the Empty Quarter by camel.

Entries for the 2014 Global Carrier Awards are now open and entrants have until August 15 to complete a submission for review by the judging panel.
