Mountaineer and Adventurer Jeff Evans Named Keynote Speaker for Xploration 14

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Lutz, FL - Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced that Jeff Evans, mountaineer, adventurer, emergency medicine Physician Assistant and noted speaker, will be a keynote speaker at Xploration® 14. The event takes place March 25-27 at the Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive in Orlando, Florida.  Mr. Evans’ keynote address will take place Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 3:30 PM. Attendees can register at: www.cvent.com/d/64q8z1.

Jeff has appeared on ABC’s Expedition Impossible, is the published author of MountainVision: Lessons Beyond the Summit, and has played a major role in the award-winning documentaries Farther Than the Eye Can See, Blindsight and High Ground. 

“I had the opportunity to hear Jeff speak at an industry event in Las Vegas a few years ago and knew he was someone I wanted to speak at our event,” says Skip Henk, President and CEO of Xplor International, “The audience was spellbound by his message and passion, as was I.”

Jeff’s climbing began in the late 1980s on the rock faces of Colorado and California. By the mid-90s, Jeff was guiding clients, as well as working search and rescue, on North America’s highest mountain, Mt. McKinley

In 1993 Jeff met and formed a relationship with blind climber, Erik Weihenmayer. Together, they shattered people’s perceptions about the “handicaps” of the disabled by climbing Mt. McKinley, El Capitan and Aconcagua; competing in adventure races; guiding other disabled individuals on peaks around the world; and successfully reaching the summit of Mt. Everest in 2001. To date, Erik is the only blind climber to reach the summit of Everest.

The teamwork, communication and leadership skills that Jeff has honed during his amazing adventures and challenges have given him the tools to become one of the most dynamic and inspirational speakers on the circuit today. 

Mr. Evan’s keynote address will be “MountainVision: Lessons Beyond the Summit.” His presentation is being sponsored by Neopost USA.
