Antarctic Expedition Leader


Rachael successfully led a year long expedition to Antarctica. There her leadership and teamwork skills were refined and put to the toughest test.

 

She was the youngest and just the second female expedition leader to Davis Station.

Antarctica: pristine, scenic and beautiful. That's summer. Now, imagine living with your team in that place through  winter:  months of darkness, the temperature hovering around -35˚C (-31˚F), and there’s no way in or out… 

Every little thing can become an issue in this pressure-cooker environment. In fact a $20M science program was nearly stopped over whether the bacon should be soft or crispy!

With great humour, insight and humility Rachael now brings the lessons she learned about leadership and teamwork in this toughest place to organisations and associations everywhere.

The job of a leader is to create more leaders, not more followers! This keynote explores how great leaders build and invest in those around them and turn "moments into momentum" by paying attention to the little things. This is all about showing BIG leadership in SMALL moments.

How did Rachael become the youngest female leader to Antarctica, or the youngest Chief Ranger? In this keynote Rachael outlines the key career tools that every woman must use to progress effectively. Perfect for both women's and mixed events.

An hilarious and compelling account of Rachael's time leading up to 120 people on in the remotest corner of the earth for a year. Hear about "life in the freezer", the plane crash, how "the bacon war" nearly derailed a $20M science program and other unique stories backed by uncommon insight and useful tools.


The future of teamwork

Safety Leadership   |   Teamwork

Today's and future teams are very different from what they once were. Now we come together quickly, remotely and are expected to perform immediately. In this keynote Rachael uncovers the critical tools she uses to quickly create cohesion, purpose and resilience in teams. Practical tools you can put to work straight away. 

It's a truism, but change is the new constant. It can be unsettling, energising but create extreme fatigue. In this keynote Rachael provides the tools to navigate this world of "flux" that dominates business today.  Self-leadership, resilience, and persistence are the keys. 

Workplace health and safety insights from the harshest, coldest, most isolated workplace on earth. Rachael recounts how she kept her team safe and sane through the long, dark Antarctic winter and provides practical ways each person can show effective safety leadership.

Rachael is a wonderful speaker who connects emotionally and intellectually with every member of the audience.  She is generous in sharing her leadership insights which, combined with her fascinating and unique experiences in Antarctica, create a truly inspirational and memorable story.  Rachael was an absolute pleasure to deal with, professional in every regard, focused on extracting the maximum value and tailoring her insights to the audience.  As a result, the feedback from the forum was absolutely outstanding.  Thank you Rachael! 

Tara Cahill, Chief Risk Officer, Group Services, Westpac Group

If you have big ambitions, then being big on the little things as a leader is critical. The little things help the important 4 letter words—care, give, team and best—come to life. Rachael is one of the best when it comes to teaching and inspiring leaders on why little things matter.

John Gillam, Managing Director, Bunnings

Amazing! Rachael's safety messages were spot on for our team. Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed by all. HSE Coordinator
I have had more positive feedback about this session than anything we have done in the last 2 years.  People have been quoting “bacons wars” and “no triangles” at me all day. Very inspirational. Brad Shaw,  WorleyParsons Services Ltd

I have never received so much positive feedback from a guest speaker as Rachael. Her fantastics messages and insights can be easily applied in our business. Her unusual and interesting stories made her message even stronger
