Description

Most of us have to deal with a setback or two from time to time

In business, your degree of success is directly linked to how quickly you bounce back, what you learn from it and what you do to avoid it happening again.

How do you think you might deal with a challenge from which you don't know if you'll return or not? ...Or with the life-or-death challenge of losing supplies in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean thousands of miles from land?

Rachel Flanders had to face all that, and miraculously, she did it all when she was just 17 (which won her a Guinness World Record). She also had to deal with challenges within the 4-woman crew which no one should ever have to face, let alone someone of her age.

In the spirit of Giants Academy, we are really looking forward to having Rachel join us in November as she shares with us her amazing story and the 3 lessons she learned when facing her insurmountable task and we look at how they can help us in business.

If you or your people sometimes feel like you need to dig really deep to find a way through, then make sure you join us for this.


About Rachel

Rachel was the youngest person to complete the 3500 mile Atlantic row from the Canaries to Antigua in 2008. To say it was a true test of mental and physical endurance doesn't seem to quite cut it. Once the crew had set off, they really were by themselves, no support boats, no rescue helicopters.

Since then, Rachel has gone on to become one of the most successful graduate engineers in BAE Systems working on the construction of nuclear Astute and Dreadnaught submarines in Barrow-in-Furness.
