SUCCESSFULLY CLIMBING EVEREST…AND COMPLETING PROJECTS
Wednesday 29 May, 2019
As an architect, business owner and mountaineer Neill Johanson understands the importance of preparation and planning, goal setting, risk mitigation, problem solving and adapting in a crisis – all invaluable skills used in preparing for and delivering civil projects.
As a mountaineer, he’s survived frostbite, falls and earthquakes in achieving his goal of making it to the top of the highest peak in each of the world’s seven continents including Mount Everest.
So, what does climbing mountains teach Neill about managing risk and projects? A lot. Neill’s reflections had those in attendance hooked on his every word and his address extended on well beyond closing time. When the venue staff stop to listen, you know it’s special.
