I’ve been in Northern Europe this week doing corporate speaking, which enables me to combine my business experience and my Seven Summits expeditions to entertain, educate and motivate people from various types of businesses.
I’ve got five presentations lined up over six days in various parts of Finland and Sweden, so it’s been quite an intense trip.
Earlier today I spoke to around 270 ICT entrepreneurs and small business professionals at Kasvufoorumi – Northern Europe Summit 2013, organised by Ohjelmistoyrittäjät. The event included an impressive set of speakers, including the Finland’s Minister for European Affairs and Foreign Trade, Mr Alexander Stubb as well as Mr Risto Siilasmaa, Chairman of Nokia.
I enjoyed the opportunity to take to the stage and share my experiences from climbing Mount Everest last year, focusing on how resolve and persistence play a role in reaching one’s goals.
It was a great event and if you missed it this year, make sure you put it into your calendar for next year!
