The idea that adventures inspire performance arose on the summit of Two Hummock Island in Antarctica, in December 2002. Preparing to make his ski descent down the steep face to the ocean, founder Shane Toohey reflected on how much he had learned about leadership and its power to create positive outcomes. He was about to complete his mission of skiing on all seven continents and recognized that adventure was a powerful metaphor for everything he did. He knew that he wanted to share this with others.
