Mark Kalch

Mark Kalch is an explorer, adventurer and athlete. In 2008 he was part of just the 4th team in history to make a full, human-powered descent of the world's biggest and longest river, the Amazon. 153 days and 6800km of high altitude trekking, extreme whitewater paddling and flat water rowing from the Andes of Peru to the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Brasil. Among other trials, the team suffered acute mountain sickness, dysentery and tropical disease, were shot at by both the military and narco-terroristas, survived a month of the hardest whitewater on the planet and battled a tidal river that became in the final weeks more than 40km wide. His next undertaking is a solo, on foot, north to south crossing of the Islamic Republic of Iran. A 1600km, 4 month journey through a region shrouded in mystery and intrigue.

When Mark takes the stage, his goal is always the same: to give each audience member a bolstered sense of what is possible. What they can achieve. Simple yet truly effective concepts from the world of exploration and adventure that they can apply at work, and in life, to help make their world, the whole world, a little better place for us all (more productive, more profitable, easier, happier…)

" I would just like to offer my thanks & congratulations on the lecture you gave to us. The Amazon expedition you spoke of was not only an exciting ride but also a tale of success against the odds - pushing through barriers, which in our normal everyday life would seem insurmountable. An awesome slideshow combined with a real passion for your subject. Well done." Steve Fraser, Managing Director, Fraser Engineers Pty Ltd

"Just a quick email to say thanks … All the guys thought it was a most fantastic adventure and the enthusiasm with which you gave the presentation really put us there with you! Amazing photos as well." David Nolan, GDP Sales
