“Everest is, and will always be, an enduring symbol of hope, striving and achievement.”
Tim Macartney-Snape is an Australian mountaineer, explorer, writer and entrepreneur. As an inspirational speaker, he uses his mountaineering triumphs as a spectacular framework to communicate the fundamental aspects of achievement. His profoundly moving talks are enhanced by dramatic photos and awe-inspiring footage.The determination, resilience and focus needed to pioneer new and challenging routes to the tops of the world’s highest mountains are skills Tim applied in establishing the globally successful outdoor equipment business, Sea to Summit.
Tim has been in demand as an inspirational speaker since his ascent of a new route up the North Face of Mount Everest in 1984. Climbing Everest for the second time without oxygen and Sherpa assistance in 1990, after having walked all the way from sea level and founding a globally successful business, have simply enhanced his speaking repertoire billing him as a sought-after and highly motivating speaker.
