Asia’s leading motivational speaker, David Lim, spoke at the first LinkedIn Speaker Series event live from the new office in Singapore. Hear about the lessons David Lim, leader of the first Singapore Everest Expedition in 1998, learned from Everest and what climbing the great peaks can teach us all about self leadership and teamwork.
During this session, you will find out what happens when a Mount Everest expedition leader becomes partially disabled and then decides to undertake a ten year study about how teams and individuals work together on and off the mountains!
David Lim is best known for leading the landmark 1st Singapore Everest Expedition in 1998 (as well as the second in 2001).
