Tim Jarvis - By Endurance We Conquer: lessons in leadership from a lifetime of expeditions
In March 2013 explorer and environmental scientist Tim Jarvis led a team that made the first successful retracing of legendary polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1916 Antarctic survival journey. Using the same rudimentary equipment, period clothing and technology as Shackleton, his team sailed a replica James Caird lifeboat 1500 kilometres across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island to the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia, before climbing through the island’s mountainous interior with virtually no equipment or provisions. This is the first time that anybody has been able to recreate Shackleton’s journey, regarded by many, Sir Edmund Hillary included, as the greatest survival journey of all time.
Tim engages his audience with gripping, first-hand accounts of the challenges faced, offering unique insights into the very real parallels that exist between his expeditions and achieving at the highest level both personally and professionally, even in a time of crisis.
