The Everest Motivation Team believes that clients prefer facilitators and consultants who have walked the talk. We inject our lifetime of experiences in the most unforgiving environments into our programme design. This is so that you, the client, will benefit from a learning experience that goes beyond theory and book-learning. We aim to close the gap between ” knowing” and ” doing”.We help you obtain results and a desired outcome. To that extent, we are focused on designing and delivering solutions, and not activities/sessions/programmes.
