Jim’s Introduction

Our speaker today is Jim Davidson, with Speaking of Adventure.

As a climber for 36 years, and as a high-altitude expedition leader, Jim is an expert in resilience.

Jim has been on successful ascents from Argentina to Tibet, and from Bolivia to Nepal.  Along the way, he and his teammates have been commended twice by the US National Park Service for volunteering for successful high-altitude rescues.

Jim has shared his intense experiences on TV with CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, and more. In addition, his survival story was made into an episode of the international TV show, “I Shouldn’t Be Alive”.

His amazing survival tale and the lessons he learned from it are shared in his co-authored New York Times best-selling book called, “The Ledge”.  The Ledge was selected as one of the Best Books of The Year by Amazon. 

Jim has two grown children.  He lives in Colorado with his wife, Gloria, of 29 years, who is a very, very tolerant woman!
