We all take risks, but when we fail it doesn’t usually involve death. Joe Simpson has been in the risk business for over 30 years, and the story he tells has reached far beyond the narrow confines of his chosen profession to appeal to millions of people from all walks of life.
The messages are clear; careful planning, effective teamwork, goal setting, decision making, coolness under pressure and self belief can get results. Making the right decisions, in the right place, at the right time, can be the difference between living and dying. Success is about choice not chance.
Touching The Void - Motivational Speech
The appeal of Joe Simpson as a motivational speaker is that he tells his story in an unassuming, articulate and often humorous style. He refrains from giving patronising analogies between his exploits and the jobs of the people in the audience, preferring that they draw their own conclusions from the multitude of key messages that are wrapped up in his story.
The overriding feeling is one of total amazement and that no matter how tough things may get, there is a way to not only come through it, but to achieve even greater goals.
Joe Simpson is able to fine tune his presentation to your conference or event, to a degree, however it would not be possible to make the talk solely about teamwork, for example. You will find that his presentation deals with many issues that are important in just about every industry, and certainly in the lives of every individual.
“Touching The Void” deals with planning, strategy, teamwork, goal setting, leadership, responsibility, motivation and our ability to reach way beyond what we think is possible.
