Brad Borkan is co-author of When Your Life Depends on It:
Extreme Decision Making Lessons from the Antarctic. The book
focuses on the real life-and-death decisions made by early
Antarctic explorers like Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen and
Mawson. When Your Life Depends on It reveals amazing
lessons in leadership, team work, and sheer grit and determination
that can help all of us make better decisions in our lives today.
This can be especially useful when confronting adversity, building
effective teams, and trying to succeed against the odds -- all
important skills in today's world.
He has presented at Antarctic conferences in Norway, Ireland and the UK and appeared on cable TV in the US, and on internet radio talk programs. He also has given keynote presentations at business conferences and recently conducted a webinar to 500 top employees of a Fortune 100 company using the ideas in the book. His talks focus on leadership, teamwork, resilience, and improving one's personal and business decision making, all set in the exciting context of Polar exploration.
