“…men are little islands…women bring with them a different perspective…”

…says Pen Hadow, the Artic Explorer and who has recently joined Fidelio Partners the board advisory and executive search firm, in today’s FT. He had established the first women’s polar expeditions and noticed how women behave differently under stress. I met him a few times about seven years ago and read his book, Solo. He struck me then as someone who is incredibly driven but with deep insight and I suspect he will achieve his goal in his new career to use his “experience to bring about change in perspective…having an effect on a group to enhance it, change their view of themselves”. These, it seems to me, are incredibly fulfilling objectives for him and hugely useful for his clients.
