Joe Simpson has drawn from his experiences as one of the world's most renowned and respected mountaineers to become a leading author of 6 books. 'Touching the Void', the story of his amazing survival, having shattered his leg and been left for dead in a crevasse high in the Andes, has sold over two million copies worldwide and won 11 film awards including a BAFTA.

Joe now brings his knowledge and powerful stories to the corporate sector where, in an amazingly inspirational and awe inspiring presentation, he takes the audience back to a climb that changed his life forever. The story starts on the notoriously difficult and previously unconquered North Face of the Siula Grande mountain where a fall, shattering Joe's leg left him vulnerable and with his fate in the hands of his climbing partner. On the route to safety Joe found himself suspended over a 80ft drop, faced with few alternatives his climbing partner made the gruelling decision to cut the rope. Alive but with horrendous injuries, this is one man's journey of survival against all the odds. A powerful, passionate, and captivating voyage of personal courage and strength that was fuelled by Joe's overwhelming desire not to die alone. Joe Simpson has developed a reputation on the speaking circuit, which is second to none. Having spoken to a wide variety of audiences of varying nationalities, Joe has consistently exceeded all expectations. His presentation is supported by an "all action" introduction video and stunning photography.

'I was speechless at the end of Joe's presentation - the casual, informal, personal and captivating way in which he tells his remarkable story held my attention for every second. In terms of achieving my objectives by impressing the audience with the strength and ability to meet tough personal challenges and goals, Joe achieved this 100 percent. He has become a subtle role model for many of our staff in terms of handling challenges and achieving goals.' ...ICL
