My Life in a Freezer
This is an honest account of how you leave a safe working environment behind with the security of a pension and salary to step into literally the unknown. Mark talks about a combination of experiences from expeditions in the extremes of the planet combined with formulating a business around a passion.
Pioneers and Modern day exploration
Comparing how modern day exploration hasn't moved onto much compared to the pioneers of ice - outlining Mark's experiences in the extremes and paralleling not only the modern day equipment, clothing, environment and leadership decisions but also the responsibility modern day explorers have regarding rescue teams and understanding climate change.
Mark outlines that moment of creating a seed of an idea or inspiration to progressing it to a major expedition bringing in documentary teams, expedition members, global education programs, environmental projects and major global brands. From inception to completion Mark takes you through the process including standing on the side of Mount Everest to being totally alone in Antarctica.
Below Zero Decision Making
Imagine standing next to your collapsed colleague in minus 45 with a 50 mph side wind in semi darkness nearing the summit of Mount Everest - being alone in a complete white out 30 days into a 50 day unsupported solo expedition across Antarctica or being helicoptered into mass shelves of unstable arctic ice to be screamed out by the Russian pilots that it’s too dangerous to land.
A talk based on experience and instinct, Mark outlines the need to understand your team, the task and the objectives behind business and extreme expeditions or in his words - "leading from the back."
