Talking Points

Bravery Over Perfection

In life and in business, it is always more rewarding to focus on being brave rather than seeking perfection. When we choose bravery, we are prepared to try new things and we accept that failure and mistakes are just part of the process. When we make perfection the goal, who often don’t even try from fear of looking foolish.

Jade shares this fundamental truth learned the hard way, through her epic polar journeys.

Who this is for:
Founders, entrepreneurs, business leaders, executives, students.

- The inspiring story of what Jade was able to accomplish at such a young age with this attitude
- Why this approach to life is so much more rewarding
- Tools and tips for living life this way

Saving our Environment through Female Empowerment

Saving our environment long-term cannot happen without gender equality.

The world is severely out of balance in so many ways, all of which can be traced back to the suppression of feminine power and gender inequality - when women’s status is reduced to being child bearers and men’s property it damages all of us, but this point of view is still present many cultures globally today.

Restoring this balance means giving young women around the world have access to education, programs and resources to grow in the directions of their dreams. By changing their future, we will change everyone’s future for the better.

The continuing exponential growth in the population of humans as the biggest threat to our environment. The most sensible way to address this issue is to educate and empower young women therefore allowing females to make their own decisions over the number of children they have and when.

Jade shares with us her unique perspectives on global warming shaped through her polar journeys and global travels.

Who this is for:
Founders, entrepreneurs, business leaders, teams, and anybody who wants to see a change for good

- Jade’s perspective on global warming drawing from her unique polar expeditions
- The long-term benefits of gender equality for everyone
- A fresh perspective on the global warming debate.
