Talks
Leading at The Edge: Timeless Leadership Lessons from Shackleton's Epic Antarctic Expedition

Presented by Dennis Perkins, former MBA professor at Yale University and author of “Leading at The Edge,” a leadership tool book, based on the story of Ernest Shackleton and his special brand of extreme leadership.
This presentation recounts the saga of legendary Antarctic explorer, Ernest Shackleton. It shows the extraordinary difference that strong leadership and teamwork can make under conditions of adversity, uncertainty, and change. And it illustrates how the strategies used by leaders and teams at the limits of physical survival can be applied in any challenging environment. Participants will have an opportunity to share their questions and insights about the Endurance Expedition, and they will leave the discussion with powerful tools for Leading at The Edge.
