Believe the vision, plan for success and make it happen

I welcome challenges in everything I do. Challenges present new opportunities you never imagined possible and can help you reach new heights of success


Organisations across Europe, North America and Asia have been inspired by Ann’s dynamic presentations. Ann is a Guinness world record-holding polar explorer and an accomplished guide. She believes that with the right planning, attitude and a positive focus people can achieve what they set out to do even in the most difficult circumstances: “It’s easy to view any situation in a negative light. But I truly believe that if you become passionate about what you do, and believe in yourself and those around you, then you can find success in ways you would never have believed possible.“

Ann should know. She started out in the polar world as a mother of triplets with zero knowledge about the outdoors. Ann spent nine months teaching herself everything from navigating with a compass in whiteout conditions to cooking on a stove the size of a grapefruit in order be invited onto her first expedition, a unique relay to the North Pole.
By sharing memorable experiences from her polar expeditions, Ann takes the audience on a parallel journey through their own challenges in a tough and changing world: “The difficulties people encounter at work are similar to the problems we face on expeditions, be it impossible targets, constant pressure or morale within a team.”

The topics that Ann speaks about most often include leadership, teamwork, motivation, overcoming challenges and how to succeed in todays environment. All of Ann’s talks are tailored to match the audience’s requirements.

Although Ann tailors every presentation to match the client’s requirements, she never uses a script because she enjoys interacting with members of her audience, responding to their needs, and answering their questions.

What can we say other than you are a true inspiration and made an educational leadership conference have a sense of excitement and uniqueness because of your after-dinner contribution. It is no mean feat to engage such a large group of individuals, where a pin could be heard to drop, with such finesse, passion and charm. When you arrived, it was to a group of strangers and when you left, it was from a group of friends with great admiration and respect for your immense determination, spirit and achievements. The standing ovation was a reflection of that.
