Conquering Everest

“Our company used Summit Team Building for our Sales Conference. We had over 100 people in attendance and the program that Summit designed for us was engaging and motivating for the entire team. Their team did an excellent job from start to finish in ensuring our goals as a company were met with the service they provided.”

The Idea

There is something mystical about Mount Everest – it captures people’s imagination even if most of us will never see it first-hand. Summit’s president Scott Kress saw it from bottom to top in a year that presented climbers with more obstacles than ever before. Breath-taking photos and videos will take your team from basecamp to the highest point on the planet.

Along the way, people must work together to overcome a series of challenges – no one gets to the top alone. It takes a team.
This workshop is more than just story-telling. Learn how the lessons of Everest can apply to your team. Effective decision making, made with high levels of trust and support are the true factors that get teams to the top.
All teams have their Everest - what's yours?
