After headlining the WOWSA Awards and cheering on his ice swimming colleagues at the Big Chill Swim and International Winter Swimming Association World Cup in Windermere, England, Lewis Pugh took off to Dubai.

Pugh will deliver another speech on his pioneering swims in the North Pole and in the Maldives along with his underlying messages of speaking out on injustices and believing that achievement of the impossible is possible.

Right before Pugh’s speech, American President Barack Obama will deliver the keynote speech at the World Government Summit in Dubai. President Obama and Pugh were invited by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai to the fourth edition of the World Government Summit.

President Obama and Pugh will give their speeches to more than 3,000 participants from 125 countries, including top dignitaries, leaders and experts from the government and private sectors across the world about the theme of Shaping Future Governments.

The World Government Summit will be attended by a number of heads of states, governments and international organizations. In his speech highlighting the ability of developing countries to advance, the President of Rwanda Paul Kagame will share the experience of his country in saving one million citizens from poverty.

Pugh will give a similar speech to the one he gave at the WOWSA Awards.

The World Government Summit is a knowledge-oriented forum that convenes representatives of academic institutions and scientific research centers and university students, who are invited to share their future visions and aspirations. The summit presents and discusses more than 70 topics highlighted by top speakers at the main and interactive sessions attended by a number of leaders, decision-makers, ministers, CEOs, leaders of innovation, officials, experts and entrepreneurs.
