Keynote speakers

Dominic Barrington  | After 23 years working as an international geologist and mining industry professional, Dom has spent the last 10 years working as an award-winning Polar Expedition Photographer for Hurtigruten in both the Arctic and Antarctic. Dom will be sharing the true Polar experience; what to expect when venturing to the Polar regions, followed by a presentation of his award-winning photography to showcase the magic of the Polar regions. Take home some pointers on how to capture breath-taking photos.

Anika Paust  | Who would have thought that a girl from Perth would end up living in the Northernmost part of the world? Starting with a fascination of Polar regions, Anika travelled to Svalbard to visit as part of a gap year holiday. Anika instantly fell in love with the landscape, animals and the true sense of adventure. She left her aerospace engineering degree in Perth and moved to Svalbard. Anika never thought that she would be there 9 years later, but the experiences, place and people have kept her hunger for adventure alive every day.
