BMF Conference offers new slant on Peak Performance

Published:  24 April, 2017

Kenton Cool, one of the world’s leading high altitude climbers, will draw on his experience of leading summit expeditions to offer insights into leadership in extreme moments at the BMF All-Industry Conference in Budapest in June.

Mr Cool has climbed all over the world, establishing new routes and first ascents of peaks in Alaska, France and India. He is also one of the world’s most sought after guides and has successfully climbed Everest 12 times, including an ascent leading the explorer, Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

His years in the mountains have taught him how to face and overcome his own challenges, as well as how to bring out the best and inspire belief in those around him.

John Newcomb, managing director of the BMF, said: “Leading teams into uncertain danger in the mountains - and bringing them back alive – provides valuable guidance on the criteria for a peak performing team. Kenton’s presentation demonstrates both his passion for his sport and highly practical lessons for any high performance business.”

The BMF All-Industry Conference takes place in Budapest from 15 to 18 June at the five star Intercontinental Hotel. Broadcaster and TV personality, Gethin Jones, will host the event.
