Tim Jarvis AM


Inspirational Leadership

Tim Jarvis is one of Australia’s most prolific scientists and adventurers.

Tim led the first authentic retracing of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s “double” - sailing a replica James Caird boat 1500kms across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island, Antarctica to South Georgia and climbing over South Georgia’s mountainous interior using the same rudimentary equipment, period clothing and technology as Shackleton.

Tim’s expedition was the first successful attempt to authentically retrace Shackleton’s journey, regarded by many as the greatest survival journey of all time. A Discovery Channel/PBS documentary film and best-selling Harper Collins Book Shackleton’s Epic: Recreating the World’s Greatest Journey of Survival have been made about the expedition.

Tim draws on his vast experiences and his insights into leadership in extreme conditions makes him of the most qualified leaders in Australia.
