His presentations build on his experience in the Antarctic to talk about leadership, crisis management, dealing with change and adversity, finding motivation and team building.
In 2017, Sam survived a near helicopter crash in Antarctica and in 2020 he managed a vessel of 200 people while navigating the outbreak of Covid-19 and a group of Australians stranded off the coast of Uruguay.
