Global explorer Mark Wood becomes ambassador for ContactEngine
ContactEngine, an omni-channel, automated and interactive communication platform, has announced that polar explorer Mark Wood is now an ambassador for the company, following his use of ContactEngine technology during his expeditions for over four years.
Having completed over thirty major expeditions worldwide, Wood is now one of the world's leading explorers, venturing across some of the earth's most dangerous areas. His journeys have included a solo expedition to the South Geographic Pole followed directly by a 200 mile solo crossing of the Arctic Ocean to the Geographic North Pole.
Through the use of his satellite phone, ContactEngine's technology allows Wood to communicate with schools from all around the world throughout his expeditions, as part of his global education programme. He will be using this technology for his journey from the Russian coast line to the North Pole, starting this month.
Commenting on his new role, Mark Wood said: "I'm happy to be continuing my partnership with ContactEngine through becoming an Ambassador.
"Their technology allows me to have conversations with school kids from all around the world, which is the main reason behind why I go on my expeditions".
ContactEngine CEO, Dr Mark K. Smith, commented: "We're really pleased that Mark will be representing ContactEngine as an ambassador. ContactEngine are proud to support Mark in his remarkable expeditions and in return, Mark uses ContactEngine to communicate with his supporters, be that schools, teachers, sponsors and fans from around the world. If we can reach Mark – we can reach anyone!"
