Topic: Risk Management

Will Gadd: A Mountain of Risk – Tools to manage fear, swing the odds in your favour, take good risks, and stay safe in everyday life.

Will Gadd

Will Gadd is a globally renowned athlete, adventure guide and author who has appeared in movies and TV, including hosting Discovery Channel’s Fearless Planet documentary series. He has set and beat world records in climbing and paragliding and won many National and US championships, World Cups, and three gold medals at the X-Games.

Will was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for achievements like the first ice climb of Niagara Falls (see picture), exploring underground mines in Sweden, and scaling icebergs off the coast of Labrador. He also reached goals like the first one-day solo ascent of Mt. Robson, paragliding over the Grand Canyon, and last but not least: surviving.

Will focuses on excelling in life by carefully assessing each adventure and properly managing the risks. Along with adventure travel and guiding, his passions include teaching ordinary people to also excel at making the right choices to achieve success;
