Inspiration   |   Entertainment
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
Teamwork   |  Leadership
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.

Self-leadership, resilience, and persistence are the keys to succeeding in a world of seemingly constant change.

Workplace health and safety insights from the harshest, coldest, most isolated workplace on earth.

She provides practical tools each person can use to create leadership around them.

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

Rachael was incredibly interesting and different to most speakers you usually see at these kind of events. She was honest, engaging and made her experience relevant to us. We just wish we had more time with her. Lucas Kiely, UBS
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
