“Tim spoke to our senior management team at Alliance Trust with such enthusiasm and passion that it was possible to visualize the enormity of the challenges and achievements of his expedition. What made our session with Tim all the more beneficial was his ability to draw such clear parallels between his expedition and the everyday challenges faced in running an investment management business.  His narrative is inspiring and he is able to captive the audience as a storyteller of a truly epic adventure, but also make it relevant and a learning experience for all.  I have no reservation in recommending Tim as a motivational speaker and leader in performance management.”  Alliance Trust Investments, UK

“Tim Jarvis AM,  adventurer, environmental scientist and author, enthralled his audience at the British-Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) in Geneva, Switzerland,  with stories and details of his 2013 recreation of Sir Ernest Shackleton`s epic crossing of the Southern Ocean described by many as the greatest survival journey of all time. My colleagues and I of the Geneva Committee wholeheartedly recommend Tim to those who seek a better understanding of the qualities of exceptional leadership, the demands of exploration in extreme conditions, the critical importance of teamwork, a better appreciation of our  fragile environment and the deeper  understanding of ‘Self’  through  exertion, effort and achievement  of great survival journeys.” – British Swiss Chamber of Commerce, Switzerland
