Throughout 2016 we interviewed the following globally recognised experts in their field exclusively for the Homeward Bound voyage.
- Dr Jane Goodall – Primatologist and environmental campaigner; changed a generation of environmental activists
- Franny Armstrong – Film maker behind ‘The Age of Stupid’, 100 most influential women
- Dr Sylvia Earle – a global leading Marine Biologist, explorer, author, and lecturer
- Christiana Figueres – Former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
- Dr Amy Edmondson – Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School
- Dr Susan David – Co-Founder and Director of the Institute of Coaching, awarded speaker and coach, Harvard A-lister
- Clare Bowditch – award winning Australian singer and activist
- Dr Robert Kaplan – developed strategy mapping The Balanced Score Card, on behalf of Dave Norton and himself
- Valerie Taylor – shark expert, known for her conservation advocacy and films
Members of the filmed faculty will largely be focusing on what they think women of the caliber participating in Homeward Bound can do to influence issues on a global stage. They will also share their insights around what works/doesn’t work and why. We anticipate ‘live streaming’ the faculty for two days at the end of the voyage. This is in planning.
Additionally, our science faculty who are part of the core Homeward Bound team (who work with the Australian Antarctic Division, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania and University of Queensland) are in discussion with a range of scientific contributors, recognised for their expertise and contribution to a greater understanding of change in our world, to contribute to the science program on board.
