Gearing up for Antarctica

The team has just boarded the ship on their way to Antarctica! They recorded their thoughts as they traveled to Argentina, the first stop in the journey. Stay tuned to the blog over the next week as we share their thoughts and some early pictures before they’re able to connect with us from the other side of the Drake Passage. The first post below is from Galyna, a Consultant in Bain Paris.

Antarctica 1

In September 2014, three of us – Kate, Galyna and Thalia received extraordinary news – we had been selected to represent Bain at the 2015 International Antarctic Expedition! A long-standing dream will have come true!

After this amazing announcement, the three of us plunged into active preparation.

6 months of organizing numerous fundraising activities, Bain toolkit trainings, hundreds of emails, dozens of calls between the different time zones…

6 months of exchanging ideas, getting to know the team members, expanding our knowledge about Antarctica and sustainable development…

6 months of excitement, anticipation, self-questioning, discoveries as well as incredible support by our Bain colleagues, our families, our friends and people whom we never met who assisted us to make this adventure come true!

Today, full of thrill and gratitude, we are finally heading South. The journey that started 6 months ago, will take us beyond the edge of the world…
