David Lim, CSP is best known for leading the landmark 1st Singapore Everest Expedition in 1998 (as well as the second in 2001). Partially disabled from a devastating rare nerve disorder since 1998, his comeback story of overcoming the odds made the cover of the Readers Digest magazine in 2001, and has since been translated into eight languages, and reaching over 35 million readers. He worked in media for nearly a decade until 1999.
Since 1999, Lim has been a sought-after leadership expert, with expertise in motivational and negotiation skills, and, building high performing teams. These add value to any client event or sustainable change initiatives. Lim has a B.A. in Law from Cambridge University, and a workshop leader with a decade of experience delivering solutions in negotiation, leadership and team skills across 71 cities, and 30 countries (and still counting!).
Lim’s presentation style is breezy with lots of humour, audience-interactive and backed not only by decades of leadership achievement, but also with the rigour of an understanding of how adults learn. This makes his solutions to a presentation or event programme so very different than just hiring an ‘achiever’ type of speaker who may lack a people-development background.
Lim is also a credentialed workshop leader, large-group faciliator and teambuilder. His leadership expertise has been widely profiled in The Wall Street Journal, and Singapore’s The Straits Times newspaper. As a mountaineer, The Sunday Times described him as “unstoppable” after he summitted his 7th virgin peak in 2012.
A past President of the Asia Professional Speakers ( 2007-8), his work included being an adjunct lecturer for INSEAD Business School (since 2000). Lim hasn’t given up climbing, and is a veteran of over 70 alpine and expedition ascents around the world, and achievements in recent years have included scaling 6000-metre virgin peak in Qinghai and making the first single-day, mobility-impaired ascent of the 4092m Mt Kinabalu in Borneo in 2013.
Lim is a CSP(Certified Speaking Professional), the first and only Singaporean to be conferred the highest designation for professionalism and consistent quality by the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation (GSF). The CSP is an independent audit of five years information on the firm’s quality, processes and maturity.He joins a group of fewer than 12% of 6000 professional members of the GSF who have this accreditation.
