Welcome to the World Explorers Bureau where the world's greatest explorers and adventurers will inspire and motivate your audience.


I was thoroughly mesmerized by Matt's subject matter, style, and engagement with the audience. He is able to bring every one of the participants along with him as he experienced the triumphs and epic challenges of his journey. Adding interactive "what would you do" moments into the presentation creates an immersive experience and mandates full attention. Matt was able to skillfully leverage his story of leadership, courage, and perseverance to underscore our core meeting objectives through an entertaining and gripping presentation.

Scientist, Explorer, Presenter Huw james joins World Explorers bureau

Adventurer and astronomer, Huw James is a presenter and active campaigner for public participation in science and the outdoors. He has brought his brand of energy and enthusiasm to hundreds of stage and screen appearances and can be seen performing at many of the science and outdoor festivals and events across the globe

Huw James

Originally trained in space science and a fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Huw is an all-round athlete and adventurer. He combines these interests together to create his unique approach to engaging the public in the science of the universe and the adventure that is the natural world.

    • #liveadventurous - We get bombarded with motivational messages all the time telling us to “get out there” and “just do it” but what does It really mean to live adventurous? Scientist and Adventurer Huw James will share insightful looks into past and present adventurers and scientists and the contributions they’ve mide to society whilst being adventurous in every aspect of their lives!

    • #thenextgiantstep - The four corners of the map have long since been filled in, the details becoming more specific and the resolution getting higher. But the maps of our reality past the Earth are still very much unknown. Exploration of our planet is at an all time high, but what are.

    • #ourhumanplanet - Humans have a very special relationship with our planet, our instincts are filled with curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. Exploring the globe takes time and preperation or we can easily be caught out in extreme conditions. But the pros, far outweigh the cons as we discover our dynamic


Huw is a truly exceptional presenter and the content of his presentations are particularly appealing to young people. Usings a blend of props, humour and audience participation he has no trouble in engaging even the most science averse individuals! Highly recommended.
