Leading on the Edge: Empowering You to Empower Others

with Rachael Robertson

Imagine living through months of darkness, the temperature barely rising above -35 degrees, and you’re stuck inside with colleagues you barely know, with no way in, and no way out.

Antarctic Expedition Leader, Rachael Robertson, will reveal how she built a high performing team from a group of strangers, keeping them inspired and productive through Antarctica’s long, dark winter.

Through humor and storytelling, Rachael will unpack how great leaders build and invest in those around them, turning ‘moments into momentum’ by paying attention to the little things.

She’ll explain why respect trumps harmony, and how she built a culture of collaboration, integrity and trust in the toughest of environments.
