The BBC approached Rob and Chris to enter the Fujitsu Polar Challenge and coach Seamus Hogan an Arctic novice to race to the North Pole. 7 teams entered 2 finished with Mission Performance retaining the Blue Ice Trophy.
The National roadshow of open programmes that followed showcased the adventure and the team and leadership lessons we began sharing with our clients.
We continue to use these stories and lessons and pool them with our diverse collective experiences at Mission Performance to underpin our programmes.
A full 60-minute account of journey filmed by the BBC can be found below. The programme was the headline programme of 7 entitled the Challenge Series. Its aim to see how a member of the public would cope with extreme adventure. In our case, Paul ‘Seamus’ Hogan was as strong as the race was long.
