Resilience and risk from the frontiers of human performance and neuroscience

Tuesday 30 November 2021
12:00 - 1:00pm

Ian Snape is the CEO of Frontline Mind, a training company based in Hobart. He is a former research leader and executive at the Australian Antarctic Division where he led teams on fourteen polar expeditions to both polar regions.

A fan of the Harry Potter books, Ian is the real-life Professor Snape, previously holding Professorial Fellowships at the University of Melbourne and Macquarie University. In a parallel life, just like Snape from Hogwarts, he’s a master in defence against the dark arts, holding black belts in both Taekwondo and Hapkido. He is also a flow junkie, a passionate ski mountaineer, a climber, and a competitive sailor.

Ian coaches and trains CEOs, olympic athletes, and frontline professionals how to operate effectively and safely in complex high risk environments. His company Frontline Mind offers scalable resilience and leadership training solutions where poor risk management has significant consequences.

He is the author of more than 100 academic papers across a wide range of scientific disciplines, and has just published the world’s most comprehensive how-to manual for resilience. Come along to hear Ian talk about the origins and key findings from his book Resilience by Design: How to survive and thrive in a complex and turbulent world.

In this wide-ranging talk, Ian maps decision-making processes from the frontline, and elite and extreme sports where poor choices are life-threatening, and shows us how to transfer those high performance, embodied-thinking processes to people who work under pressure in modern business.
