Laurie Dexter, (Arctic explorer), was a member of the Soviet-Canadian expedition that skied across the arctic Ocean from Russia to Canada via the North Pole in 91 days.
His main area of expertise is the polar regions, but he has travelled on all seven continents with a vital interest in education and in global environmental issues.
He participated in the Bylot Island Expedition which was particularly significant in that it was self supporting for over forty days and made the first ever longitudinal crossing of the island, skiing and pulling sleds. He was leader of the Border Peninsula Expedition and member of the expedition that crossed the Tien Shan mountains in the summer of 1987. In 1997 he was part of the two person expedition that made a ski and sled hauling traverse of King George Island, Antarctica.
Over a period of thirteen years he made 26 first ascents and 7 second ascents of high Arctic mountains, some of them solo and in mid-winter. In addition to having lived with Inuit (Eskimo), Dene and Metis people for 27 years, he has a particular interest in native people around the world.
Laurie is an experienced presenter with a range of topics covered by very few people. He has addressed conferences and corporations on educational and motivational themes, and universities on topics regarding Inuit studies and linguistics.
An inspirational public Speaker, Laurie’s fascinating and entertaining lectures have received rave reviews from audiences around the world.
