"An inspiring and thought provoking talk. I enjoyed every moment of it."
Deutsche Bank Group

"Arresting but beguiling; Without leaving the room, Sean effortlessly takes audiences on some of the perilous journeys he has taken, giving them an at-times painfully honest account of his treks across frozen lands. Sean is a must-hear hero of the snow. The self-titled Ice Man is a treat to behold and is a truly inspirational speaker. Move over Fiennes, there's a new adventurer in town."
Deputy Editor, Human Resources Magazine

"Sean's talk was extremely well received by our leadership development delegates. His ability to combine a fascinating polar adventure with tangible team leadership lessons gave real added value to our day. I can highly recommend Sean."
Founder, DXM

"Using Sean as a motivational speaker at our sales conference provided the perfect example to demonstrate that through applying self drive, planning and teamwork you can succeed in even the most challenging of situations. The personal account of his experience and the approach he took to meeting his goal enabled the audience to identify with their own personal challenges and feel motivated to being able to achieve them. Undoubtedly he added value to the overall event."
CEO, Nynas Bitumen

"Excellent presentation that I personally think held the audience. I also felt that there was a lot of team / leadership pointers that are applicable to any business - I particularly liked the 'leadershift' concept. Sean used the word team throughout the presentation which again endorsed in my mind what the 200+ people in the audience should 'all be about'. Conflict within teams was discussed and I particularly liked how Sean focused the team on immediate objects that all linked to the overall goal i.e. incremental steps that are mentally manageable but all contrive to achieve the ultimate prize."
Alan Turner, Faculty Business Manager, Faculty of Health and Social Care, Anglia Ruskin University 

"It is very encouraging to see that the Team Management Systems principles which work for Sean in his polar expeditions are the very same I use in my work as an intercultural consultant. His success proves he is doing something right and I suppose I too. Thanks Sean, it was great to meet you."
Jochen Schuppener, Intercultural Consultant

"Take away the sub-zero temperatures and the risks of injury or even death, and you have many comparisons to companies that are in a state of chaos, whether in expansion or contraction. The need to build and train a group of individuals that can operate together as a successful team in highly stressful situations is very necessary in today's global workplace and your lecture gave me some great examples of how you provided strong leadership in this area. I saw direct comparisons to my own experiences within my management group in how constant communication is necessary."

"Visiting Florida, I was able to get the 'Ice Man' to really warm up a local audience. His insight into leadership and teamwork based on his polar adventures created a sense of awe in the group. Sean's wit and engaging personality kept the audience excited and energized. Thanks for the instant energy!"

Lorraine Vaun-Davis, Director Accelerated Development Programme & Director Learning Delivery, Executive Education

"I had the opportunity to attend a presentation of Sean during a programme of the London Business School. I was very impressed how he linked his adventure experience with the managerial skills needed for every manager to be successful. The insides of the decision making processes under extreme circumstances, the prerequisites of the recruitment of his team members for his journey, how to manage stress, and how to deal with the interests of the stakeholders, were very helpful for me to use in practice."
Board Member Iveco Magirus AG

"I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and felt the use of a really gripping story to rehearse some of the principles of leadership and team working was an interesting and useful strategy."

Sean gave an extraordinarily inspiring lesson on Survival, Competitiveness, Will to Win, Leadership, Team Spirit, Planning, Recruiting, Overcoming Obstacles, Crises Management, Objective Setting, Achievement Celebration and above all it showed us a picture of a different way of facing life in our short existence in this small planet."
CEO, Medtronic

"Sean gets things done. Easy when said quickly but he gets things done thoroughly and with the minimum of fuss. He is highly motivated himself and he motivates highly as a consequence - you don't lead a team to both Poles by being half-hearted. An excellent communicator with unimpeachable integrity, I would recommend Sean to anyone."
Managing Director, Corporate Defence Mechanisms Ltd

Commandant General Royal Marines
