In Detail

Supported by the Canadian government, Joe led ten research expeditions under the Arctic Ocean and constructed Canada's first subsurface research laboratory; the only freshwater underwater lab, the only under-ice station and it was the only 'free' submerged habitat in the world at the time. Joe Macinnis is also the first person to explore the freezing waters beneath the North Pole. Joe has worked on more than fifty undersea science and engineering projects with the U.S. Navy, the French and Canadian governments and the Russian Academy of Sciences. Along the way, he spent two years as a consultant to Canada's Privy Council Office and seven years as a consultant to the TD Bank Group.


Joe MacInnis has spent a lifetime analysing leadership and teamwork in high-risk environments including the deep ocean, the battlefield, governments and corporations. Joe focuses in an optimistic and upbeat way on solutions, and the audience takes home a new understanding of leadership and teamwork and a renewed commitment to apply it.
