What mountaineering teaches about motivation, team management & decision-making – Mark...

A research scientist and wine maker, he also has a first class honours degree in human biochemistry. But that’s not what best describes Mark Inglis — the first double amputee to summit Mt Everest. He is the fighter whose career has gone from being a SAR mountaineer to a legless one. He lost both his legs to frostbite in 1982, when he was stuck in an ice cave dubbed the ‘Middle Peak Hotel’, near the summit of Mount Cook for 14 days.

Inglis, now a motivational speaker, helps people achieve their own potential in life. He speaks to HRKatha on what the corporate world can learn from mountaineering.
