Motivational Speaker: Laurie Skreslet

On October 5th, 1982 at 9:30a.m. Laurie Skreslet received the distinction of becoming the first Canadian ever to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. As a result, he was given a great deal of attention upon his return to Canada. In the process of sharing the story of the climb with Canadians, he became aware of the relevance it held for members of the business community. Many saw a parallel between the challenges of the mountain, and the challenges they faced in the modern business world.

For the past 22 years, Laurie has given over 2,000 presentations across North America, Europe and Asia to audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies to school groups.

Testimonials

He was absolutely outstanding - clearly someone who not only has worked to achieve the exceptional in his own life but also has the linguistic skill and ability to communicate that philosophy to his audience.

A week after the conference, people are still talking about your wonderful and inspiring message... your presentation was clearly the highlight of the event.

Thank-you for your most inspiring presentation. Our sales team was captivated by our enthusiasm and your unique ability to associate your experience with our business environment. Presentations this profound are rare.
- Paul Drake, Novartis
 
Your presentation to the group was nothing short of fantastic! You made it relevant to our business while taking everyone on your journey to the summit. You truly made the conference the success it was because of your inspiring and "real" style.
- Daniel Geraci, Fidelity Investments
 
Your knowledge and more important your enthusiasm were just the high energy kick-off we needed.
- John Jessup, Du Pont Canada Inc.
 
 
Laurie has written an award-nominated children's book. To the Top of Everest was nominated for both the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award and the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award. It has also been added to the Children's Literature Choice List.
