Free Breakfast Meeting

Craig Mathieson,
Polar Expedition Leader

Tuesday 11th December 2012

89 members and guests who attended our networking breakfast were entertained by our special guest speaker.

Craig led the first Scottish expedition to the South Pole and he talked about his amazing exploits to the North and South Poles.

He was an excellent, interesting, motivational and very funny speaker and he had some wonderful stories to tell.

He held his audience in the palm of his hand, recounting stories of his times spent in grueling training sessions in the lead up to his expedition, the extreme cold, the frost bite, the SHARP KNIFE…

But he said he never doubted that he would complete the journey.

“There were some points where my knee was giving me a lot of jip and I thought it was going to be a bit harder,” he said.

“But once I saw the South Pole station, as just a tiny black dot, and I knew we were going to make it it felt absolutely brilliant and all the pain disappeared”.
