We are thrilled to announce a new partnership between Hiscox Re & ILS and Richard Parks. As part of this exciting and collaborative partnership, we will be supporting Richard’s efforts during Team Quest (external link) – an expedition to ski solo, unsupported and unassisted from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.
Team Quest has two aims: skiing one of the toughest polar expeditions on the planet as fast as possible and in doing so provide learning opportunities for both young people and business leaders, using adventure to inspire them to have the courage to think beyond boundaries.
In December 2018, Richard Parks returns to Antarctica five years on from becoming the fastest Briton and first Welshman to ski solo, unsupported and unassisted to the South Pole, and is aiming to ski faster than ever before. Team Quest will be using the development, execution and legacy phases of this polar endeavour to create unique applied learning opportunities in both education and business sectors.
Whether it’s engaging or motivating teams, developing resilience within the workplace or simply sharing his experiences of performing in extreme environments, Richard’s unique approach is highly respected among a number of brands. Richard seamlessly turns personal anecdotes of teamwork, resilience and commitment, into techniques you can apply to achieve our own business goals. He exemplifies the values that we associate with our team, reflecting our customer-centric and pioneering approach.
Being part of Team Quest is about having the courage to undertake your own adventure, whatever that may be, big or small. it’s about seeking out new ideas and collaborating with others. Above all, it’s a commitment to share our collective experiences and learning to enable others.
We hope you find inspiration to embark on your own adventure in 2019, big or small, becoming part of the wider #TeamQuest community. You can find out more about Team Quest and follow Richard’s journey on his website here: www.richardparks.co.uk/team-quest (external link)
