World renowned climber, adventurer and author Jeff Evans has established himself as one of the country’s most respected mountaineering guides and has now become the most sought after adventure based motivational speaker as well. Incorporating many stunning images from his global adventures, Jeff 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.
Jeff has a unique perspective on the topics of Leadership, Teamwork and Commitment because he has lived them. Sixteen 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 worked with Erik on creating a climbing vision, establishing an acceptable definition of success and refining effective methods of communication, all innovative and challenging.
Jeff has addressed corporate and executive groups around the world, colorfully translating the lessons he has learned from his adventures into applicable themes that can be used in our daily professional and private lives. As the audience is captivated by Jeff’s rich storytelling style, his four power themes of Leadership, Teamwork, Commitment and Vision are effortlessly infused. During each of his seven keynote programs, Jeff 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 MountainVision message is resonating now more than ever due to the economic challenges and uncertainty every industry is facing. Jeff 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. Jeff's program "Guiding Through the Storm" centers around guiding and leadersip in this volatile period we are all facing. And if Leadership is what your group is looking to build on... Jeff is now able to facilitate the Franklin Covey Everest Leadership Program in an intense and powerful breakout session.
Jeff is a proud member of New York City's prestigious Explorers Club, the published author of "MountainVision: 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" and "Blindsight."
