Imagine leading your team through months of darkness and freezing temperatures of -35-degree Celsius with only each other for company and no way in our out. That was the challenge Rachael Robertson undertook, successfully leading a year-long expedition to Davis Station, in the toughest workplace in the world – Antarctica. She was the youngest, and one of only two women, to lead such a mission, where even the little details like whether bacon should be cooked soft or crispy, could potentially have derailed a $20 million research program. In this session, Rachael shared the leadership lessons she learnt and the tools of teamwork she employed to help companies move their businesses forward and navigate the future.
