Alan Chambers MBE

Polar adventurer Alan Chambers MBE led the first successful British unsupported expedition from Canada to the Geographic North Pole. They walked 672 nautical miles in temperatures as low as -65°C, dragging a sledge the weight of a baby elephant. After a gruelling seventy days on the ice, on 16th May 2000, Alan and his teammate raised the Union Jack. Alan has subsequently led over a dozen North Pole expeditions with top business leaders and chief executives. He helps them to explore and reflect on their own leadership capabilities.

He is co-author with Dr Richard Hale of best selling business development book ‘Keep Walking: Leadership Learning in Action’ and over the years has helped raise over £5m for charities. Alan began ‘extreme walking’ to raise money for scientific research into recovery from spinal damage following severe paralysis of a fellow Marine.
