Adventure | Inspiration | Leadership | Teamwork
Incorporating many stunning images and videos from his global adventures, Jeff Evans recounts his role as the primary guide for a blind climber and then creating the systems of communication necessary to guide him successfully on mountains all over the world, culminating with the summit of Mt. Everest. Just in the past year, he served as the Expedition Leader for the groundbreaking Soldiers to The Summit Himalayan Expedition as well as appeared in ABC's new hit adventure series, Expedition Impossible.
During his programs, Mr. Evans draws on many of the metaphors hidden in the world of adventure and brings them to his audience in a humorously inspiring way. These messages are funny, potent, and tactile; reminding his audiences that it is critical to focus on creating a powerful and selfless team, seek out opportunities to be a leader, and disregard the expectations others create in order to achieve your own potential.
The Mountain Vision message is resonating now more than ever due to the economic challenges and uncertainty every industry is facing. Jeff Evans brings the perspective of "the guide" to each of his keynote addresses. Companies and organizations are truly relating to the responsibilities of being a guide for their clients and customers during this storm.
Mr. Evans has a unique perspective on the topics of Leadership, Teamwork, and Commitment because he has lived them. Seventeen years ago, he electively chose to be the primary guide for then unknown blind climber Erik Weihenmayer on mountains, rock faces, and adventure races all over the world...even after many established guides had passed at the opportunity. Jeff Evans worked with Mr. Weihenmayer on creating a climbing vision, establishing an acceptable definition of success, and refining effective methods of communication, all innovative and challenging.
Jeff Evans is a proud member of New York City's prestigious Explorers Club, the published author of Mountain Vision: Lessons Beyond the Summit, a practicing Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant, and appears as one of the main characters in two different award-winning documentaries, Farther Than the Eye Can See, Blindsight, and the soon to be released Soldiers To The Summit documentary.
