Jim Elzinga comes packing some of the most compelling, entertaining and death defying stories ever told.
He is one of the rare recipients of the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation Award of Recognition for his leadership of Everest Light.
Jim is the only Canadian to have led an expedition that has climbed a new route up Mount Everest. Of eighteen recognized routes, the Everest Light expedition was given a mere 17% chance of succeeding by climbing experts. In the years since, this achievement has gained considerable historical importance; in spite of seven high-profile attempts, it has not been duplicated.
He’s been there; he has proven that he can get the job done in some of the most challenging environments on earth. He’s a leader, with high altitude strategies that have been tested and confirmed on the roof of the world, and on the front lines of international business.
He’ll inspire you and your team to draw upon their inner strength, to find what he describes as the Heroic Heart. From this point of strength, individuals can cultivate the ‘calm intensity’ that helps team members manage their fears and overcome their doubts.
Jim is more than highly entertaining – he has an urgent and empowering contemporary message for today’s business leaders.
In a modern world of uncertainty and change, Jim’s message touches every one of us, inspiring individuals to reach beyond the norm, to the summit of their own particular Everest.
