Teamwork to the Ends of the Earth

The next event in our Leaders in Business Lunch Series features British Record-breaking adventurer, leadership and team coach & consultant, author and speaker, Adrian Hayes as he presents his story of conquering the extremes of the planet – and the criticality of having fully functioning high performance teams to do so.


In this visually stunning presentation, Adrian will present the realities of such expeditions as trekking two months to the North Pole, skiing the length of Greenland and summitting K2. And, whilst de-bunking 'teambuilding days' as a waste of time, give some real lessons, tools and techniques on creating a high performance team in the workplace.

Adrian will also be signing copies of his new book One Man's Climb following the presentation.

Our Leaders in Business Lunches are special events inclusive of a three-course lunch served at the Shangri-la Hotel.

With special thanks to our Leaders in Business Lunch Series Partner, St. James's Place Wealth Management Asia.
