Rory Simpson, a Scot, had parents who were polar explorers and this led to a unique childhood spending summers living with the Inuit in Greenland and Canada and later kayaking and climbing in Alaska, Finland, Norway, Nepal and throughout South America. This experience gave him keen insights for leadership that were honed from an early age. Rory is currently the Chief Learning Officer at Telefónica, and formerly Associate Dean of London Business School. In the last year he delivered leadership seminars in over 25 countries from China to Iran and Chile.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
