We can create a team building experience that resonates and adds value to your events. Designed for both large groups and small each program is fun, sophisticated, and organizationally appropriate. Our strength is in creating an exceptional team building experience and ensuring that all participants are engaged from the outset. Our facilitators approach each program with infectious enthusiasm, an understanding of what participants are expected to gain from the activity and the tools to deliver.

Whether teams are being creative or competitive, they love to interact and that is the key to creating an environment that is perfect for team building. Each program can be used effectively as an energizer during a conference, as a kick off to a development initiative or as a maintenance piece within a multi-day training solution. Our focus is on making the team building fun, meaningful and something that will stay with them once they get back to the office. The key components for any program is that it has a high level of interaction is engaging for all participants and run by facilitators who are skilled at and love what they are doing.

When Scott engages his audiences with tales of an Everest climb where the challenges went far beyond just climbing the mountain, and seamlessly ties that into reaching professional and personal goals, one can’t help but listen.

A noted speaker, author and leadership consultant, Scott helps organizations turn their teams and leaders into passionate achievers. He has a Masters Degree in Leadership and has taught leadership and team development at some of the leading MBA and EMB programs in the world and has received many top honours including Professor of the Year.

As a trainer and speaker what sets Scott apart is his ability to scale mountains and the learning he has gained from these adventures. Scott is the 51st Canadian to summit Mount Everest and most recently while standing atop Mount Vinson in Antarctica he became the 18th Canadian to climb the seven summits; the highest point on all seven continents.

Scott’s stories kept us riveted. We really did “feel” what Scott was talking to us about… listening, hearing AND seeing it!! His takeaways were perfect segues into vibrant group discussions immediately after. These discussions led to solid actions that my team and I will be plowing through in the weeks ahead.

I just wanted to personally thank you again for presenting at our executive summit. It was clear that you took the time to understand our business and challenges, as the presentation was truly tailored to our needs. Several of our attendees commented on how much they enjoyed your presentation, and the way you applied the lessons you learned as a climber. Your presentation was thoughtful, inspiring and well suited for our audience of high-level executives. You went above and beyond our expectations and really delivered for us. Thank you for your hard work, and we definitely hope to work with you again in the future.

Summit Team Building is an extraordinary group of people who offer unique and highly engaging team building opportunities. We have had them facilitate a couple of different programs within our organization, and our participants are always delighted with the enthusiasm, organization and overall goals of the learning. From a planning perspective they are so easy to work with. Well organized both before and on the day of the event. I would highly recommend Summit to anyone looking for a team building or development opportunity that will be high impact, high value and remembered for a long time!
