Climb Your Mountain - The unEverest Keynote
Follow Paul to the top of Mt Fuji, the perfect mountain to climb, because you can climb it too. It’s not Everest. it’s Mt Fuji, the mountain that 400,000 people – including grandparents and children – climb every year.
Mt Fuji is the setting to learn about how to achieve your goals. The mountain forced Paul to face obstacles, stay focussed and laugh at challenges. It also gave him a great opportunity to learn to enjoy the view on the way to the summit. And if he can do it, you can too.
