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.
