Every year a call goes out for people to go and work in Antarctica. Imagine answering that call out of curiosity, only to find yourself leading an expedition of people to work for six months at the South Pole.

How would you rally 18 strangers? What if they don’t get along? Does everyone eat bacon the same way?

Rachael Roberston has just finished a book based around this experience, as well as 10 years of industry study. She’s an international expert in leadership and teamwork, so her book isn’t just about leading a team into the Icy Beyond, it’s also a useful guide into how to best deal with everyday conflict ‘in the office’ or at home.

Rachael is now a successful keynote speaker, but the story of her journey to the Antarctic is frankly amazing – and that’s why she joined Sam and Duncan for a chat on the Amazing People Podcast.
