World record breaking polar explorer Ann Daniels is an inspiration to those who hear her speak. Her warmth and honesty make her presentations compelling and her positivity, grit and determination illustrate what can be achieved by the many and not the few.
Ann is one of the world’s leading female polar explorers, and was part of the first British all women’s team to walk to the South Pole and the first all women’s team in the world to walk to both poles. She also leads teams of men and women on last degree expeditions to the North and South Poles.
In 2000 Ann and four other women became the first all British women’s team to reach the South Pole on foot. Pulling sledges weighing over 140 lbs and navigating by the sun the team travelled 700 miles across Antarctica, the most inhospitable continent in the world.
Ann went on to put together the team that in 2002 became the first female team in the world to ski to both poles. Temperatures as low as -50º for the first 26 days severely hampered progress and success looked doubtful from the start. The girls were hit by three storms so severe they were unable to erect their tent and huddled together for 3 days surviving with little food and water.
They suffered frostbite, back problems and carbon monoxide poisoning and after 47 hazard filled days one of the team had to be evacuated due to frostbite and wet gangrene. Despite these setbacks Ann and her fellow team mate achieved their goal and reached the pole triumphantly.
Areas of Expertise
Ann has now set her sights on becoming the first woman in the world to walk solo to the North Pole. She believes that with the right attitude there are no limits to what we can achieve.
Ann’s story is testament to what can be achieved through determination, perseverance and correct planning. She tailors every speech to her audience and illustrates the importance of teamwork, strong leadership, the correct attitude, setting goals, managing change, overcoming the odds and the importance of persistence.
She has given presentations to both the private and corporate world and successfully combines looking after her 13 year old triplets and four year old daughter with her professional career as an explorer and motivational speaker and there is no doubt she is an ordinary woman who has achieved the extraordinary.
