John Amatt

You might say that the mountains have made the man. The man is John Amatt, and the mountain he's been climbing have helped to build his inner strength, confidence and international recognition. The most significant mountain was Everest and John was a member of the first Canadian expedition to reach the summit.

In life, as in mountain climbing, John has found that the most important part of the "climb" is the journey. We limit ourselves because of our own ignorance and fear. He recognizes that it will take courage, resourcefulness and endurance to meet the challenges in our own futures. "The courage to try, to commit and to take a risk. The resourcefulness to be innovative and creative in finding new ways to do old things. And the endurance to keep going when things get tough."

Drawing from his own experiences as expedition business manager and a climber on Canada's first successful Mount Everest expedition, and building on a lifetime of adventure and entrepreneurship, John Amatt uses the adventure metaphor to inspire and motivate your audience.
