in 1914 Shackleton and his crew of 27 were stranded in Antactcica when their ship, the Endurance, became frozen and crushed in solid pack ice.  The crew faced starvation, extreme temperatures and complete isolation.  With little hope of rescue, Shackleton led his men to safety on South Georgia in the Falklands - not a man had been lost of the 57 who set out.

Shackleton has been
lauded as a model for corporate leadership he  "Shackleton resonates with executives in today's business world. His people-centred approach to leadership can be a guide to anyone in a position of authority". Other management writers were soon following this lead, using Shackleton as an exemplar for bringing order from chaos.

Jo and Stewart are publicing both the expedition and the Shropshire Children`s University by talking to schools and adults in the county.  The children will be following the team`s story via the website and global navigation
