It’s Everest season
It’s April which means that the 2016 Everest expeditions are starting to gain height on the slopes of the mountain known in Nepal as Sagarmāthā and in Tibet as Chomolungma. Acclimatisation is well underway with many of the teams now above the dreaded icefall on the Nepal side of Everest.
In the coming weeks a lot of lessons will be learnt and experiences had, all good I would hope but often some hard times – best wishes to all on that mountain, for many it is a tough place to earn a living.
It is those personal lessons and experiences on summiting Chomolungma as the first double amputee combined with my corporate life and the challenge of being that double amputee that I take to the corporate, education and charity worlds.

And some feedback from Heather Gupta at UTV:
Mark delivered a presentation skills workshop to 40 of my mid and senior level employees. He managed to make this a mix of both practical and inspirational learning. Participants came away with specific learnings around presentation skills, ranging from the more generic ‘gaining in confidence” to the more practical hints and tips on how to stand, how to deliver a memorable presentation, how to overcome nerves and how to deal with hecklers and unwanted questions, amongst other topics. Mark’s own inspirational story, delivered at the end of the workshop, not only demonstrated the art of making an outstanding presentation and but also inspired the audience to really look at themselves and overcoming their obstacles in a whole new light. Mark is an extremely engaging, personable speaker as well as a hugely positive and motivating human being. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to any corporate looking for a similar workshop.

Mark’s Program Overview for all the options, even better contact Mark directly!
To listen to the ideas and proven research on how we can function better, either as individuals or as members of an organisational culture is great, but far more powerful is the opportunity to see these lessons in action, to get an understanding of where you and your organisation are, relative to the gold standard and to receive feedback and support on how to become even better.
These programs don’t rely on you jumping off a cliff into the arms of your work mates or taking your first bungy or even putting your life at risk by climbing a mountain, instead by using innovative and fun simulations we can learn the lessons, still be challenged in our thinking but not putting our bodies on the line. The lack of physical threat allows a far more focused learning outcome, one that can be as useful in your own life as your corporate life.
The main benefit of these programs is a greater awareness and respect of the people around us, an increased ability to sort assumptions and heresay from fact, all things that mean a more efficient and profitable working culture.
So use the buttons to access a new world of information, inspiration and expertise!
