For our annual holiday event we'll be joined by an outstanding Canadian mountaineer and adventurer, Scott Kress.

Scott has spent a lifetime working with high performance teams in thin air - quite literally. He understands that to climb the highest mountains in the world and return to tell the tale, the support of a fully engaged team is essential. He'll share his secrets with us.

"Teams don't become high performance because we don’t clarify the basics", says Scott Kress.

For Scott the key ingredients of a world-class team are: leadership, focus, well-defined roles, shared resources, transparent communications, and united effort. Yet, despite knowledge of these truisms, corporate leaders often fail in their efforts to build highly performing teams. He’ll help us understand why this happens.

You will take away: 

  • An understanding of why high-performance teams are difficult to build
  • Insights into the anatomy of highly engaged teams, and how you can build them
  • A clarification of team impact and why it's critical now more than ever 


NOTE: Books will be available to purchase after the speaking event and at the beginning of the holiday social, bring cash!
