John Amatt Booking Agency Profile

John Amatt is a former school teacher, management consultant, and counsulting associate of the Banff Center School of Management. He is currently the president of his own company One Step Beyond WorldWide, an innovative educational and motivational company, whose mission is to encourage people to push beyond their self-imposed limitations, to be more personally accountable for the results of their own actions, and to embrace effective teamwork by valuing the contribution of others. He is also on the visiting faculty in Kingston, Ohio.

He has over 25 years of mountain experience and has led expeditions to Arctic Norway, Peru, Nepal, China, Greenland, and the Canadian Arctic. He was expedition leader of Canada's first mountaineering expedition to China, which made a successful ski ascent of 24,757-foot Mount Muztagata in Xinjiang Province. As the Business Manager and a climber on Canada's first successful expedition to climb Mount Everest, Mr. Amatt was responsible for generating over one million dollars of funds and products required to mount the assault. As media spokesman during the climb, he regularly appeared on the CBC Journal and Canadian National News television programs as well as on ABC Nightline in the United States.

Born in 1945 in Manchester, England, he emigrated to Canada in 1968 and became a Canadian citizen five years later. A professional speaker for many years, he has addressed over six hundred corporate and professional groups and an estimated 300,000 people.

John Amatt's adventures are related in his autobiography, Straight to the Top and Beyond, in which he uses the metaphor of his own adventures to develop a nine-step approach for scaling the heights in today’s unpredictable global business environments.

Currently, Mr. Amatt is coordinating the Sir Alexander MacKenzie "Canada Sea to Sea" Bicentennial Expeditions, an ambitious five year, $4 million dollar project which will retrace the route of the first crossing of North America from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans. This journey, in replicas of fur trade canoes, will take place on the 200th Anniversary of the original explorations that occurred from 1789 to 1793.
