LEADERSHIP ON THE EDGE: How to Build Personal Leadership Skills Among People Who Choose to Embrace the Challenge of Sustaining all Forms of Life – in Their Families, Communities, Organizations and the Planet

In league with the all-time great explorers and adventurers, Robert Swan is the first man in history to walk to walk unsupported to the North and South Poles. On both expeditions, he experienced, firsthand, the effects of environmental damage on the Polar icecaps, thus shaping Swan’s lifetime goal – to work for the preservation of the Antarctic as the last great wilderness on earth. He since founded 2041, an organization dedicated to this goal.

Today, Robert Swan compares his icy experiences to boardroom maneuvers and his inspirational addresses have received the acclaim of discerning audiences worldwide. His contribution to education and the environment have been recognized through his appointment as UN Goodwill Ambassador for Youth, a Visiting Professorship of the School of Environment at Leeds University and in 1994 he became Special Envoy to the Director General of UNESCO. He was awarded the OBE in 1995. In 2003 and 2004, Robert and his company, 2041, delivered the fi rst ever corporate Antarctic Expeditions on teamwork and leadership.

Through positive participation and real missions, the unique insights and lessons he has learned have enabled Robert Swan to educate and stimulate his audiences.
