Ann Daniels is one of the first women in history to reach the North and South Poles as part of all women teams.
Ann is a world record holder and one of Britain’s leading female explorers. Described by The Daily Telegraph as one of the top 20 Great British Adventurers of all times she is regularly asked to speak on leadership, motivation and planning for success. As a Polar guide and the only leader of all 3 Catlin Arctic surveys she is living proof that good leadership, teamwork and a positive mental attitude does make a difference to the success of a team.
