Trainer's Profile : As attached below;
David Lim, is best known in Singapore for leading the 1st Singapore Mt Everest Expedition in 1998 which succeeded in placing two members on the summit. The climb captured the imagination of the entire country and helped reset the parameters of what could be achieved by the small, flat, tropical island nation.
A week after his return from Everest, he was totally paralysed by the rare nerve disorder Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Artificially ventilated for 42 days, he spent six months in hospital before returning home.
Though he was permanently disabled in both legs, he made a dramatic comeback to climbing the world's great mountains, and returned once more to Everest in 2001.

David leads Everest Motivation Team, Inc, a company that helps organisations build teams and grow leaders through a combination of coaching, behaviour profiling, and experiential learning.

David and his team have delivered programmes and presentations in 13 countries and 23 cities worldwide. Popular keynotes include topics on the challenge of managing change, overcoming obstacles and self-leadership. Clients include Accenture, Rockwell Automation, IBM, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, IKEA, INSEAD Business School, Intel, Ministry of Finance, Danone, AP Moller/Maersk, Oracle, Prudential, AXA, TATA Steel, ABN Amro, Nokia, Citibank, Bulgari, Singapore Telecommunications, Novartis, Pfizer and Emerson.

David was educated in Singapore and Britain; and graduated with a law degree from Cambridge University. In the corporate world, he spent nearly a decade in the media industry with positions in marketing, journalism management and multimedia. David is author of the books "Mountain to Climb" , and " Against Giants " ( both published by Epigram ). He is an accredited trainer in many human-change tools and a certified Meta-Coach.
