"Tim Emmett’s session was a breath of inspirational fresh air. Not only were his extreme adventures in words and video incredibly entertaining and funny, the extraordinary challenges he sets himself were completely awe-inspiring. Tim drew fundamental and simple learnings from these experiences that really made an experienced business team sit up, think, and rethink. Above all, it was a truly inspiring hour that captured everyone’s imagination and fired us all up."
