Organisations across Europe, North America and Asia have been inspired by Ann’s dynamic presentations. Ann is a Guinness world record-holding polar explorer and an accomplished guide. She leads men and women in the toughest environment on the planet and understands that how you behave as a leader affects the whole team. A good leader empowers their team to achieve more. She believes that with the right planning, attitude and a positive focus people can achieve what they set out to do even in the most difficult circumstances.
Ann should know. She started out in the polar world as a mother of triplets with zero knowledge about the outdoors. Ann spent nine months teaching herself everything from navigating with a compass in whiteout conditions to cooking on a stove the size of a grapefruit in order to be invited onto her first expedition, a unique relay to the North Pole.
By sharing memorable experiences from her polar expeditions, Ann takes the audience on a parallel journey through their own challenges in a tough and changing world: “The difficulties people encounter at work are similar to the problems we face on expeditions, be it impossible targets, constant obstacles, a changing environment or morale within a team”.
