Jamie Clarke Speaker Biography


Business IS an adventure—and mountain-climber Jamie Clarke walks you through how to strategize and succeed in your own ventures. Jamie challenges his audience to reach their unique Everest and guides them towards building and leading teams to success.

This acclaimed adventurer and entrepreneur challenges individuals to brave their own Everest with memorable insights and actionable strategies on leadership, risk management, and defining and achieving your goals. As a mountain climber, Jamie reached the Everest summit twice—but only after his first two attempts to reach the peak were cut short by deadly storms, leaving him only a few feet short of the summit. Determined and dedicated, he reached his goal in 1997 and 2010. Jamie is one of a handful of people in the world to hold the rare accomplishment of climbing the Seven Summits. Always one for new adventures, Jamie rode camels across the Empty Quarter of Arabia, motorbiked across Mongolia with his son, and has served as a performance coach for Olympians, the NFL, Hockey Canada and the 2018 Stanley Cup-winning Washington Capitals. Jamie is currently a fellow and associate professor at the University of Calgary’s Haskayne Business school where he teaches and mentors in the Centre for Advanced Leadership.

With gentle Canadian humor, Jamie walks you through his planning process on mountain expeditions and how to apply his lessons for business strategies. Mountain-climbing can mean plenty of risk; Jamie provides essential tips on handling risk management as you navigate challenges on your path. But Jamie offers the key to scaling the heights: retain your passion while nurturing and encouraging your team. His focus: creating an honest and authentic culture in your company that stays true to its mission.

Jamie relays the lessons he learned as the former CEO of a mountaineer clothing e-commerce business, which earned him multiple nominations for National e-commerce Innovation Awards by Canada Post. The mountain-climber's high-energy message inspires you to set high goals, overcome obstacles, and remain passionate in your own entrepreneurial adventures.

The Adventure Of Business
Jamie Clarke believes that the passion that drives an adventurer is akin to that of a business leader…and he should know. The renowned adventurer and founder & CEO of the award-winning Canadian retailer Live Out There Inc. has successfully transferred the ideas, skills, lessons and passion from summiting the world’s highest peaks to make his booming e-commerce business one of the fastest growing companies in Canada. With his trademark spirit and high-energy, Clarke excites audiences as he draws parallels to the dynamic environments found in the office and in nature to provide business leaders with the framework to achieve success in any competitive setting. Clarke shows how to adapt to forces outside of one’s control and uphold one’s mission despite distractions and dangers, all while encouraging a healthy dose of risk balanced with an ample measure of humility. Simply put: Clarke delivers insights and strategies for taking one’s organization to the peak and conquering the adventure of business.

Above All Else: The Power of Passion
With humor and palpable passion, Jamie Clarke challenges audiences to think differently about success, failure, passion, hard work and fear, as he shares insight from his journeys scaling the world’s highest mountains, trekking through the most dangerous places and starting his own successful retail business. Perfect for audiences seeking expertise on risk-taking, project management, and team building, Clarke’s customized presentations deliver powerful perspective on learning from failure, the art of grunt work, conquering fear through focus, and above all—living life with passion.

Jamie was both inspirational and funny. He's a fantastic storyteller and was able to bring the audience along on the journey. The takeaway for me was 'make a plan, be in the moment, and be agile enough to change the plan.'
