Travels from: New South Wales
An Australian explorer who pushes himself to the limits
Collaborating to Win
Effective collaboration is the most important element of success, whether you are striving to grow a company or you are voyaging across an ocean or tundra. Without real collaboration both endeavours are bound to fail.
In this engaging keynote you will learn critical steps in creating a tribe that is aligned and working together, that supports each other, and that does not put personal ambition and success over that of the organisation.
This is the perfect session on how to develop a culture that is geared towards collaboration, and ultimately success.

James has two keynotes, Crossing the Ditch & Crossing the Ice, which are highly motivating, story-based presentations perfect for motivating and inspiring an audience, to open or close a conference or as an after dinner presentation.
Be thrilled and enthralled as he takes you on an audio visual journey through two of the greatest feats of adventuring in history.
Imagine facing white-capped ocean swells as tall as a four story building and struggling across blinding white ice sheets as far as the eye can see. These international keynote presentations will stick with your audience for years to come.

Full Presenter Profile & Bio
James Castrission is an Australian explorer who enjoys pushing himself to the limits, both mentally and physically.
In 2008, alongside friend Jonesy, the duo paddled 3318km with no assistance across the Tasman Sea, becoming the first kayakers to cross the Tasman Sea as well as the longest transoceanic double kayak expedition. They braved treacherous environmental conditions including wind, rain and 10m swells as well as sleep and food deprivation. When the pair arrived on the shores of New Zealand they were exhausted both physically and mentally, sunburned, and underweight but ecstatic that they were both alive and had completed what they set out to do.
On January 26th 2012, the pair again made history by completing the longest unassisted expedition across the Antarctic. They walked from the edge of Antarctic to the South Pole, and then returned. They spent 89 days skiing the 2275km required to make history.
James has also written and published two books titled ‘Crossing the Ditch’ and ‘Extreme South’, both based on his adventures.
He can speak to any audience and motivate them to push themselves and overcome any challenges they may encounter.
