Full Presenter Profile & Bio

A natural born accomplisher and leader, Rachael Robertson is the ideal presenter for any business wanting to improve leadership within their corporation. She encourages every individual to push themselves to the limit and achieve what they wish to. 

Becoming a Chief Ranger at the age of 32, the youngest ever, Rachael was destined for greatness and a lifetime as a leader.

After spending 16 years within a variety of different senior operational roles, Robertson decided to take the plunge and lead a team through Antarctica and hone her leadership skills.

Rachael was one of the only two females to lead a team to Davis Station in Antarctica. She led a team of eighteen strangers through Antarctica for twelve months, without taking a break, the use of peers or internet. It was within an extreme and hostile environment where Rachael developed advanced leadership skills and built a team full of resilience, inspiring the principle that ‘respect trumps harmony’. 

After returning to Australia, Robertson completed her Masters of Business Administration and wrote a book based on her experience in Antarctica titled ‘Leading on the Edge’.

Rachael Robertson’s presentations are fuelled by humour and passion to ensure any audience is engaged and take away information from her presentation and apply it to their own lives. She equips audience members with the skills to feel ready to face a multitude of challenges and take the next step in their leadership journey.

Speaker Topics

365 Shades Of White
A hilarious and compelling account of Rachaels time leading up to 120 people on in the remotest corner of the earth for a year. Hear about life in the freezer, the plane crash, how the bacon war nearly derailed a $20M science program and other unique stories backed by uncommon insight and useful tools.
Change Is The New Business As Usual
It is a truism, but change is the new constant. It can be unsettling, energising but create extreme fatigue. In this keynote Rachael provides the tools to navigate this world of flux that dominates business today. Self leadership, resilience, and persistence are the keys to succeeding in a world of seemingly constant change.
Future. Woman. Leader.
How did Rachael become the youngest female leader to Antarctica, or the youngest Chief Ranger? In this keynote Rachael outlines the key personal mantras, commitments and career tools that every woman must use to progress effectively. Perfect for both womens and mixed events.
Leading On The Edge
The job of a leader is to create more leaders, not more followers! This keynote explores how great leaders build and invest in those around them and turn moments into momentum by paying attention to the little things. This is all about showing BIG leadership in SMALL moments.
Remote And Dangerous
Workplace health and safety insights from the harshest, coldest, most isolated workplace on earth. Rachael recounts how she kept her team safe and sane through the long, dark Antarctic winter by building a culture of safety leadership. She provides practical tools each person can use to create leadership around them.
The Future Of Teamwork
Todays and future teams are very different from what they once were. Now we come together quickly, remotely and are expected to perform immediately. In this keynote Rachael uncovers the critical tools she uses to quickly create cohesion, purpose and resilience in teams. Practical tools you can put to work straight away.


Rachael is a wonderful speaker who connects emotionally and intellectually with every member of the audience. She is generous in sharing her leadership insights which, combined with her fascinating and unique experiences in Antarctica, create a truly inspirational and memorable story. Rachael was an absolute pleasure to deal with, professional in every regard, focused on extracting the maximum value and tailoring her insights to the audience. As a result, the feedback from the forum was absolutely outstanding. Thank you Rachael!


I have never received so much positive feedback from a guest speaker as Rachael. Her fantastic messages and insights can be easily applied in our business. Her unusual and interesting stories made her message even stronger


Rachael was a pleasure to have at our event. A crowd pleaser, she had the audience enthralled with her incredible story. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an inspirational speaker for their event.


If you have big ambitions, then being big on the little things as a leader is critical. The little things help the important 4 letter words—care, give, team and best—come to life. Rachael is one of the best when it comes to teaching and inspiring leaders on why little things matter.


Rachael presented to over 3000 people. The feedback was extraordinary and 6 months later we are still talking about her insights and using her tools.
