    Climb the Peaks Challenge Climb the Peaks Challenge Presentation Transcript

    • Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • How did this come about?
      • Well, I came to work one day…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • And would you know it, another queue for the lift!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • I hate queuing for the lift!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • The only other option is the stairs…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • But I don’t like climbing the stairs. They’re boring…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • So what can I do to make climbing the stairs more interesting and exciting?
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • Hmmm…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
    •  
      • I‘ve got it!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • What if I treated the stairs…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • …like a mountain?!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • And right then and there, the stairs changed before my eyes!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
    •  
    •  
      • Yep, there was no escaping it: the stairs had become a mountain to me!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • I had to climb them!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • So what on earth does this have to do with you?
      • Well, from that moment on, I thought everyone would enjoy climbing a mountain.
      • But not just any mountain!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    • THIS MOUNTAIN!!!
      • No, not the Paramount mountain…
      • …EVEREST!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • So what is the plan?
      • Well, I did some measuring…
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
    •  
      • And it turns out that:
      • There are 149 steps
      • Each step is half a foot high
      • That’s 74.5ft every time you walk them!
      • Or 372.5ft a week!
      • That’s quite a lot.
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • Now, if we apply those calculations (bear with me) to some of the biggest peaks on each continent…
      • Mont Blanc is 15,782ft high
      • Kilimanjaro is 19,340ft high
      • Everest is 29,035ft high
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • It would take:
      • Over 42 weeks to climb the equivalent of Mont Blanc!
      • And about a year and a half to climb the equivalent of Everest!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • That’s WAY TOO LONG!
      • Instead, I propose we do it in 3 teams!
      • Project Development and Employment & Skills
      • Commissioning and Operations
      • Economic Strategy
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • At the end of every week, just email me how many times you’ve walked up the stairs!
      • I’ll put it in a super-duper spreadsheet calculation matrix.
      • BAM! We see how far each team has got!
      Climb the Peaks Challenge
      • Who’s up for it?
