About Aldo Kane

Trained Royal Marines Sniper, world record breaker and extreme TV adventurer, Aldo Kane, is known for his ability to navigate and lead through challenging and pressured environments. With a penchant for the world’s most dangerous, extreme and remote locations, he has compiled his most awe-inspiring tales in his much-anticipated debut book, Lessons From The Edge.

Join Aldo live in conversation, as he shares jaw-dropping stories from his life and career – whether it be abseiling into an erupting volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo, rowing the Atlantic, getting locked in a bunker for 10 days with zero daylight, or being held at gunpoint...

Aldo will also talk honestly and openly about his personal battles: how he overcame doors literally being slammed in his face, rediscovered his identity, and how he harnessed his emotions to his advantage to find determination, purpose, and a renewed sense of belonging.

Sharing tips on how to survive and thrive through sheer strength of mind and sharp decision-making, you’ll leave feeling entertained, inspired, and ready to be the captain of your own ship.
