About the Author

PATRICK HOLLINGWORTH is an experienced mountaineer, an in-demand international speaker, mentor and consultant, and a TEDx presenter. He works with people, teams and organisations to help them deal with a world which is becoming more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous by the day. Patrick is based in Australia and travels internationally to work for a wide range of clients. These include multinational companies such as British retailer Marks and Spencer, American energy giant Chevron and British-Australian mining company Rio Tinto, through to mid-sized, Australian, Asian and European banks, medical and technology companies, and government departments and educational institutions. Patrick's mountaineering has taken him to great heights literally. He's summited multiple 8000 metre peaks, including Mount Everest, and over the past 15 years has been a member of small light and fast alpine-style teams and has led rather large heavy and slow expedition-style teams. He's seen the very best of what alpine style can offer, and also the very worst of what expedition style can deliver. Find out more at
