Force Atlantic – project managing the adventure of a lifetime

Starting 03 December 2020 18:00 through to 03 December 2020 19:00

More people have climbed Mt Everest than rowed across the Atlantic. How do you plan and project manage such an undertaking full of risk, uncertainty and danger!

In 2019, serving soldiers Richard, Chris, Alex and Kian rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2019 in 37 days, 13 hours and 53 minutes.  Private Kian Helm has become the youngest person to row across the Atlantic as part of a team aged 18!

The “world’s toughest row” departed in mid-December taking the team across the North Atlantic Ocean in an 8.5m long rowing boat, unsupported. This is be the ultimate test of physical and mental endurance. Rowing in gruelling two hour shifts day and night, the team battled their way through the waves from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to the beaches of Antigua. Sleep deprivation, blisters and salt sores were just a few of the treats that the team endured.

Lt Col Richard J Hall MBE YORKS

Lt Col Richard Hall led the team in the planning and preparation of this epic adventure.  Lt Col Richard will share how you project manage such an undertaking and what skills you need in leadership, risk management and many more.
