Sunday – ENDURANCE: SHACKLETON’S WAY ~ Inspirational leadership
With his walking stick and trademark shorts, and more than a few thousand kilometres of travelling the continent under his belt, Rob Caskie has captured the hearts and imaginations of many South Africans with his evocative storytelling. Audiences will love being swept up in great tales of heroes, horses, battles and adventure. Relive the magic of the age-old thrill of story-telling, the most powerful simplest way we connect. Enjoy our soil to fork fare with a three-course sharing menu by Chef Allistaire and team, while being regaled by Rob Caskie this October. A feast for the senses in every way.
This story highlights Ernest Shackleton’s remarkable leadership principles, his choice and organisation of teams and how he always believed in a positive outcome despite dire circumstances. The central tale focuses on the crushing of the ship Endurance by ice, leaving 28 men afloat on a sea of ice for 16 months, and then Shackleton’s 800 miles / 1 280 km journey in a lifeboat across the Southern Ocean to get help. This presentation details remarkable lessons regarding preparation, experience, ingenuity and good fortune. The leadership inspirational brims with examples of fortitude, tenacity and is the ultimate tale of the human spirit’s endurance.
