Sue started her career in Corporate Training and Development working for British Gas in the UK
and then moved to a role with the United Nations in the former Yugoslavia. In 1995, Sue saw an
advertisement in a newspaper which said: “Wanted – novice arctic explorers to ski to the
Magnetic North Pole”. As an athlete who had represented Scotland, Sue knew she might be fit
enough, but had no experience of cross-country skiing or arctic temperatures. She sent off for
details and when the brochure arrived asking “are you man enough for the Ultimate Challenge?”
she became determined to win her place on the team.
Following months of assessments and gruelling tests, she was eventually chosen from over 500
applicants, and after raising $25,000 she achieved her place on the expedition. During the 30
day expedition, Sue was continually tested both physically and mentally and became the first
British woman to ski to the Magnetic North Pole. After this success, Sue took part in expeditions
to the Geographical North Pole, Antarctica and Greenland. She finished runner-up in Channel 4’s
