Kenton Cool joins the team as an Associate Director
Kenton is recognised as one of the world’s leading high-altitude climbers and also a highly engaging and inspiring motivational speaker. He has successfully climbed Mount Everest thirteen times. Kenton was first introduced to mountaineering when he read about Hillary and Norgay’s first ascent on Mount Everest in 1953. Kenton has worked with Mission Performance on a number of projects over the last 7 years. Working with our awarding winning Australian World skills exchange programme through to keynote speeches. He shares his wisdom and insight from 2 decades of climbing and mountaineering with a range of clients.
This new role will enable him to scale his lessons to a wider audience through our network of practitioners and training designers. Kenton’s insight into risk management through values and culture will help to reinforce our Human Factors training practice. We work with the some of the most sophisticated organisations and his experience on Everest, in particular, will enable us to add refreshingly different perspectives to the lessons we share with our clients.
Our work with a multinational construction company on the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station project, for example, will benefit from his insights into shared values and the creation of a safety critical culture.
