When Apollo 11 touched down in 1969, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first humans to set foot on the moon. After a worldwide goodwill tour Buzz was asked to lead NASA’s school for test pilots. He is now circling the globe encouraging scientists, politicians and businesspeople to collaborate in the quest to create a permanent colony on Mars: “It will be built by robots controlled from satellites. Every 26 months, new pioneers will take a one-way trip!”

Benedict has lived in the Siberian wilds, survived the Skeleton Coast and crossed the Gobi. More recently he’s written novel based in the Congo and returned to the Arctic, desert and swamp to see how they’re coping with a changing world. During his speech Benedict shows off the scars from a Niowra initiation ceremony.

Keith has coached junior and senior runners in both Olympic and Paralympic competition – including the 2012 men’s amputee 4x100m team. His athletes won one gold and two silver medals in London. Bringing his sporting know-how together with a background in management training, Keith shares techniques to build trust between one another – like a relay team. Getting audiences on their feet, he shows how they can develop the will to improve their performance.

Paddy learned to speak Mandarin and served in the SBS and Intelligence before entering Parliament and leading the Lib Dems for 11 years. He then served as the UN High Representative for Bosnia Herzegovina. In speeches he discusses the implications of a new multi-polar global power structure. As the first MP to have a computer in Westminster, he calls for faster, more responsive politics and the need to rebuild after May 7th.

Steve published the world’s first comic book about pensions. A highly respected industry specialist, he’s also a hilarious, deadpan speaker. He pours scorn on some of the ludicrous and often arbitrary rules that affect us all – but he can’t help bemoaning the fact that he has devoted his life to the subject.

Artist and illustrator Lance provides a live graphic commentary to an event or presentation, visually representing ideas and themes as they emerge.

James concentrates on the relationship between emerging technologies and the way we live, work and do business. He considers the age of ‘big data,’ the ageing population and the rise of a billion-strong global middle class. He also assesses the consequences of the shift in the balance of economic power and its impact on the world’s financial centres.

In an earlier life Alex was a Guardian correspondent in South America and Pele’s ghost-writer. Now he is known as the person who reclaimed maths from the geeks. He’s the author of bestsellers Alex’s Adventures in Numberland and Alex Through the Looking-Glass which, like his speeches, celebrate the magic of maths and how it underpins everything we do. He also exposes the predictability of random behaviour.

Claire was a young field nurse in Ethiopia when Michael Buerk interviewed her for a BBC report on the famine. She was irritated by his ‘stupid questions,’ but told him her grimmest task was to decide which children might survive if let in to the feeding station, and which must be left to die. The report inspired Geldof to set up Live Aid. Claire explains that everybody can make a difference and create value, not just be a consumer.
