David Knoff is an Antarctic Expedition Leader and Leadership expert who specialises in hostile environment diplomacy, resilience, remote leadership, specialised instruction, and mentoring. His first furore onto the international stage was as a young Platoon Commander in the Solomon Islands in 2007, where, as part of the Regional Assistance Mission Solomon Islands (RAMSI) he worked to maintain peace and order in the island nation. A few months ago, David arrived back in Australia after spending 537 days in Antarctica as the leader at Davis Station. When they left Australia in late 2019, David and his team did not know that a global pandemic would change the world and leave them isolated for longer than they had expected or planned for (they went for 12 months), or that they would be forced to endure an extended stay without replenishing supplies. As always, another fascinating chat with a great bloke. Enjoy.
