LEADER AND EXPLORER
Polar Explorer Ann Daniels is one of Britains leading female explorers and a world record holder. In 2002, she became the first woman in history to ski to the North and South Poles as part of all women teams. She has sledge-hauled over 4000 miles, in the most inhospitable environments in the world, completing over 10 polar expeditions and surviving over 400 days on the ice. She is well versed and aware of the importance of a positive attitude in the most difficult circumstances. As a Polar guide and the only leader of all 3 Catlin Arctic surveys she is living proof that good leadership counts and does make a difference to the success of a team.
Her achievements have been recognised by many bodies including the Guinness book of records, The Pride of Britain Awards, The Foreign Office and the Women of the Year Awards. She has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs. Along with bringing up her four children, Ann is currently working on her next record breaking project.
Ann is a leader of men and women at the ends of the world and gives presentations on leadership, teamwork, motivation and environmental issues, tailoring every speech to her audience and skillfully bringing out the key elements that are important to the event.
TWO DEGREES NORTH POLE EXPEDITION APRIL 2017
World record breaking Polar Explorer Ann Daniels to lead climate change expedition working with NASA and ESA.
NASAs Icebridge program plan to flyover the expedition on the ice, taking their own measurements calibrating with the teams findings. Modern Day explorers working with scientists to better understand the planet we live on. In 2016 the ice extend hit a new record low due to warm water influx from the Atlantic. This trend is setting us up for a potential unprecedented ice-free Central Arctic this summer.
That is why The Two Degrees North Pole Expedition is not just symbolic for our climate agreement but strongly supports arctic science.
The 22 partners in the Two Degrees project are key players in energy, mobility, waste management, real estate, consulting and sustainable investments, and all are committed to the 2 degrees challenge. After the expedition CEOs of these 22 businesses will sail from Svalbard to Kongsfjord and N-Alysund to see the dramatic changes in nature and wildlife and to understand from Arctic scientists why a two degree commitment is imperative.
