About this talk

This week on The New P&L we speak to Sean Swarner - internationally-respected explorer and adventurer, philanthropist, author, and keynote speaker. Sean is a two-time terminal-cancer survivor who climbed all seven of the highest summits on each continent, and has skied to both North and South Poles, making him the first cancer survivor to complete the Explorers Grand Slam – and all with only one functioning lung as he lost function of the other lung as a teenager as a result of his cancer treatments. Sean's adventures and passions have captured the attention of millions, and in 2017 a team followed Sean to the North Pole and made a documentary about him and his triumphs. The documentary, True North, was released on Amazon Prime. In 2018, Sean was voted one of the top 8 most inspirational people in history and was the recipient of the Don't Ever Give Up Award presented by the Jimmy V Foundation and ESPN. We discuss with Sean: - his inspirational journey from teenage terminal cancer survivor to global explorer - the core principles that underpin his life and his success - the importance of mastering the moment not your mind - setting positive daily habits - what defines great leadership - how to overcome limiting self beliefs and doubts - Sean's Summit Challenge Programme To learn more about Sean, go to: To learn more about The Summit Challenge Programme, go to: Sean on Instagram: @seanswarner The New P&L Creative Thinking for Leaders programme: To join The New P&L movement go to: and subscribe.

We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
