Summary of John Amatt

For over 30 years, John Amatt has climbed to the peaks of such famous mountains as Mount Everest, the Troll Wall and Mount Muztagata. None of this would have been possible if it wasn't for the hard work and dedication John has showed. His mission is to encourage people to push beyond their self-imposed limitations, to be more personally accountable for their own actions, and to embrace effective teamwork by valuing the contribution of others. In his latest book, "Straight to the Top and Beyond", he uses the metaphor of adventure to develop a nine step approach for scaling the heights in today’s unpredictable and rapidly-changing global business environments. An educator by training, John established One Step Beyond WorldWide in 1984 and he has since delivered more than 1,500 keynote presentations and seminars to total audiences of over 750,000 people in 35 countries around the world. Some of his presentations include; No Mountain Too High: Challenging Change with the Adventure Attitude, Straight To The Top and Beyond: Nine Keys to Meeting Challenges of Changing Times, and Climbing Your Own Everest. John has been described by International Celebrity Management (Australia) as “The world’s best adventure speaker."

For over 30 years, John Amatt has led expeditions to remote regions of Northern Norway, Peru, Nepal, China, Greenland and has explored areas of the Arctic on six occasions, making many first ascents of previously unclimbed peaks.   At the age of 20, John spent two weeks lashed to tiny ledges while making the first ever ascent of Europe's highest and steepest mountain precipice - the 5000 foot "Vertical Mile" Troll Wall in Norway.   Later in 1981, he was the leader of the 1st Canadian mountaineering expedition to Western China, which made a lightweight ascent of 24,757 foot Mount Muztagata - the highest peak in the world to have been ascended and descended entirely on skis. More recently, John fulfilled a lifelong dream by organizing and taking part in Canada's first successful expedition to reach the top of the world - the 29,028 foot summit of Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain.

An educator by training, John established One Step Beyond WorldWide in 1984 and he has since delivered more than 1,500 keynote presentations and seminars to total audiences of over 750,000 people in 35 countries around the world.   His mission is to encourage people to push beyond their self-imposed limitations, to be more personally accountable for their own actions, and to embrace effective teamwork by valuing the contribution of others.  

John's best-selling book, One Step Beyond: Rediscovering the Adventure Attitude, articulates his belief that humankind must apply the spirit of adventure to the challenges of daily life, if we are to cope with rapid change and convert it to our own advantage.   In his latest book, Straight to the Top and Beyond, he uses the metaphor of adventure to develop a nine step approach for scaling the heights in today's unpredictable and rapidly-changing global business environments.

John Amatt knows about tough times and the value of struggle in bringing out the best in teams of people! After all, he was a leader of an Everest team, which suffered four tragic deaths in two unpredictable accidents before putting six climbers on top of the world. His experience on Everest taught him about the danger of falling into the trap of complacency and the importance of always questioning the status quo in seeking new ways of succeeding in a rapidly changing world. He is the perfect speaker to assist your team in navigating through the turmoil of today's global economic crisis.
