Leadership Conference: Race to the South Pole


Reaching the South Pole was once like travelling to the moon. Antarctica was the last unexplored continent for early 20th century Europeans. And the subsequent race to the remotest place on earth earned Ernest Shackleton, Captain Robert Falcon Scott and Norwegian Captain Roald Amundsen a spot in history. 

Royal Roads associate faculty and Master of Arts in Leadership alumnus Scott Richardson says we can learn a lot about leadership from these three explorers.

Richardson will present a workshop called ‘The race to the South Pole: What we can take from the unique leadership styles of Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton,’ on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the sold-out Leadership Conference 2013: Advancing Leadership Practice and Possibility.
