Frontier Team Building Program Overview


At Summit Training & Development we believe that learning should be fun and interactive. We blend traditional training methods, such as short seminars, PowerPoint presentations and current business models, with experiential learning activities such as initiative challenges, high ropes course elements or just about any adventure-based activity you can imagine. Participants set goals and develop powerful action plans to create positive change in the workplace. Programs can range from a half-day to multi-day and focus on team development, leadership, communication, change, trust and more. Each program is custom designed to support your development needs. 

Sumit Training Program Overview

Keynote Speaking

Summit President Scott Kress will entertain, educate and inspire your team with his presentation Learning In Thin Air. Scott has a Masters in Leadership and is a leadership instructor for the Rotman School of Management EMBA and International EMBA program (teaching Award recipient), the University of Edinburgh MBA program and the Odette School of Business EMBA (voted Professor of the Year two times).

This experience provides Scott with the ability to teach you the strategies and tools to enhance performance, but what makes Scott's story sizzle is his experience in the mountains. As wilderness guide and mountaineer for over 25 years Scott has gained insights into leadership and teams in some of the most complex, stressful and dramatic environments in the world. Scott is the 51st Canadian to Summit Mount Everest and the 15th Canadian to climb the 7 Summits (the highest point on each of the 7 continents)

Scott's 60-90 minute presentation will share his story of climbing Mount Everest and the role leadership and team development played in success. This presentation contains many great learning moments that can be tied directly to your team and leadership development. Current leadership and team models make this engaging presentation relevant to your business needs.

Scott can also facilitate a 30-60 minute application workshop after the keynote to ensure the maximum learning transfer takes place with the identification of key insights and the development of realistic action plans based on the insights derived from the presentation.
