Lessons from Mt Everest


Event Details

  • Date:

David Lim knows something about leadership and overcoming obstacles. In 1998, he made history as leader of the first Singapore Mount Everest Expedition. The landmark climb captured the nation’s imagination about the art of the possible, and ignited the need for calculated risk-taking, courage and imagination in the flat, tropical island nation of Singapore. A week after his triumphant return from Everest, he was struck down by a rare nerve disorder that left him completely paralyzed – even unable to speak – for six months. David emerged permanently disabled from the ordeal. He regained his life through sheer will and focus, and made a successful return to the great mountains.

David is now a sought-after leadership coach with expertise in motivational and negotiation skills, and building high performing teams. He has addressed hundreds of audiences in over 30 countries. AmCham members are invited to our Power Breakfast on November 20 to hear David’s timeless message of overcoming the odds, the need for passion, inventiveness and perseverance. He will share his “wake-up test” of personal values and ways that you can improve at anything. He will discuss why change is hard and how you can lead change in your organization and in your life.
