Matt Walker has climbed mountains on every continent, earned a master's degree in applied behavioral science, launched his own adventure company and written a book, Adventure in Everything — all before his 40th birthday. But he'll be the first to tell you that what you accomplish isn't nearly as important as how you go about accomplishing it.

What matters, says Walker, is to be mindful and intentional in all your actions, align your values and your actions — from taking your next step on a rock wall to creating excellence in teams and driving innovation in the marketplace.

Matt had an epiphany while climbing by moonlight at 2am at 24,000 feet in the Himalayas: translate the essense of adventure into all aspects of our lives; personal and professional. He returned from this expedition and created the Five Elements of Adventure - the foundation for applying adventure into all areas of our lives and not reserve it for rare occurences. The result? A guiding principle that supports individuals and organizations to push beyond preconceived notions of what is possible and align their values with concrete action.

The lynchpin of adventure is uncertainty and uncertainty is the driving force beyond the most significant milestones in our personal lives and organizational innovations. Matt's expertise as an adventurer and behavioral scientist couple to offer a unique, grounded, and inspiring offering.

Matt draws from his background as an international mountain guide, a Master's in Behavioral Science, contributer to Fast Company and Psychology Today,and small business owner. His client list includes:

- Marriott
- Microsoft

- Cannondale
- City of Austin
- Nissan
- EO
- YPO
- Vistage
- Duke Energy
- Auberge
- Miraval

...plus a multitude of associations and governmental agencies.

He is a father of two, husband, business owner, and community leader. His ongoing work is published in Fast Company, Psychology Today, and USA Today. Matt's adventure formula is the basis of an upcoming full length documentary: Adventure Calling.
