World travelers provide lavish illustrations and powerful behind-the-scenes views of stories featured in National Geographic magazine. Speakers include renowned photographers, scientists, authors, and filmmakers.

Beginning in 1888, the National Geographic Society delivered adventures to curious minds across the United States. The speaker series, which later became National Geographic Live! in 1996, predates even the National Geographic Magazine. The Society invited prominent explorers and scientists to speak about their work, and explorer John Wesley Powell kicked off the series with a talk about the physical geography of the United States.

Although the speaker series was created over a century ago, they continue to attract world-famous explorers and advocates, such as Damien Mander, founder of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation. Many of the speakers they bring on give several talks, with Egyptologist Kara Cooney delivering the most with over 40 presentations. They have also invited National Geographic Society member and wildlife photographer Steve Winter to speak on multiple occasions. Winter has been awarded Picture of the Year International’s Global Vision Award twice. National Geographic Live! presents around 300 events annually, partnering with local performing arts presenters.
