Speaker Kevin Vallely successfully juggles his life as a registered architect, leadership mentor, author, keynote speaker, and father and still finds the time to become an internationally recognized explorer. Kevin was named one of Canada’s leading explorers in 2001 and has been building onto his resume ever since. Kevin is both a business professional and world-class explorer. He fully understands how the ‘wild-wisdom’ garnered in the adventure world maps directly to the challenges faced by the modern business professional because he’s lived through it.
Kevin works for the leadership development company The AIP Group based out of California, as a facilitator, storyteller, and keynote speaker. They focus on building leadership among executive leadership teams using adventure to inspire performance. Clients include Microsoft, Google Cisco, HPE, Aruba, Dell, The Wonderful Company, Deloitte, Time Warner, Blackrock, and many other Fortune 50/500 companies.
Kevin’s adventuring career spans nearly two decades, with one of his many highlights happening in 2009 when he and two teammates broke the world record to the South Pole. He is a member of the esteemed Explorer’s Club and was honored as an Explorer’s Club Flag recipient for my expedition to the Northwest Passage in 2013.
After spending nearly twenty years testing the limits of human endurance in the most inhospitable environments on the planet, Kevin has developed a sixth sense, ‘wild wisdom,’ that allows him to succeed at everything he does. “There’s nothing special about me,” he says steadfastly when asked, “I don’t have some hidden talent or gift, I just know how to get things done.” He inspires audiences with his core belief that all of us are capable of achieving big goals
