CPRA LogoKeynote Jeff Evans Addresses Teamwork, Leadership at Colorado Parks & Recreation Association Annual Conference 

Sept. 18, 2013 — Jeff Evans, world-renowned climber, adventurer and author, will be featured as the opening keynote speaker at the 2013 Colorado Parks & Recreation Association (CPRA) Annual Conference in Vail. This learning experience was made possible through the 2013-2014 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures and its local playground consultant, Rocky Mountain Recreation.

Evans will take the audience on a journey to high peaks around the globe, detailing his meaningful and exciting endeavors. His experiences have allowed him to hone his skills of teamwork, commitment, leadership and handling adversity, which he’ll share in a way that is applicable to parks and recreation professionals in their business and personal lives. Evans has been traveling the globe for more than 20 years, seeking out the most unique challenges in the world of adventure. Whether guiding international executives up mountains around the world, competing in ABC’s Expedition Impossible, or guiding a blind man to the summit of Mt. Everest, Jeff has tackled many objectives that on first glimpse seemed quite unlikely to be successful.
