With his dazzling audio visual presentation film adventure specialist Matt Dickinson analyses the performance of the world’s top expedition teams and begs the question “what is it that separates those teams who achieve their goals from those who inevitably fail”.

Using dramatic and sometimes humorous examples of success and failure, he distils the vital factors that contribute to effective teamwork. His insights are drawn from personal experience of the teams with whom he has worked. His successful ascent of the North face of Mount Everest in 1996 is his most challenging expedition to date and saw him become the first British film-maker to have filmed on the summit and return alive.

Matt’s account of these dramatic events “Summit Fever” has already been seen by more than 20 million people worldwide. It is widely acclaimed as one of the most compelling stories of human triumph and disaster ever told.

Selecting clips from his films, Matt illustrates that it is cohesive, adaptable teams, who have highly developed communication skills and who passionately share in an overall goal, that are the teams who achieve ultimate success.

Drawing on his experiences at the hard end of adventure filming for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and National Geographic TV in the US, he is able to reveal not just the strategies but also the human factors that enable teams to attain peak performance against overwhelming odds.

Matt Dickinson’s recent journeys have included a sea voyage by yacht to Antarctica, the first descent of the perilous rapids of the Brahmaputra River, the world hang gliding altitude record at over 40,000ft, and a walk across the inhospitable Namib Desert. His programs have been shown in more than thirty five countries and won more than 20 international film festival awards.

His lasting impression on business audiences is to create new attitudes essential for teams to succeed in today’s ever-changing environment
