Here's what people have to say about Tim's Presentations
"We were happy to welcome Tim Emmett as one of our keynote speakers during the NorthgateArinso worldwide managers meeting in 2009. We enjoyed a fantastic presentation into the wonderful world of mountaineering, ice climbing and base jumping. It was absolutely fascinating to see some of the great resemblances between business challenges on the one hand and outdoor adventures on the other. I can definitely advise everyone to
take on this thrilling ride with Tim.

"Tim Emmett's session was a breath of inspirational fresh air. Not only were his extreme adventures in words and video incredibly entertaining and funny, the extraordinary challenges he sets himself were completely awe-inspiring. Tim drew fundamental and simple learnings from these experiences that really made an experienced business team sit up, think and rethink. Above all, it was a truly inspiring hour that captured everyone's imagination and fired us all up."
