Lim is best known in Asia and abroad for leading the
1st Singapore Mt Everest Expedition in 1998 which
succeeded in placing two members on the summit. The
climb captured the imagination of the entire country
and helped reset the parameters of what could be
achieved by the small and flat island nation. A week
after returning from Everest, he experienced a
life-and-death struggle with Guillain-Barre
Syndrome, a serious nerve disorder. The disorder
totally paralyzed and hospitalized him for six
months. David is now partially disabled as a result.
His return to the great
mountains of the world has been huge struggle and a constant source of
inspiration and new insights into leadership and personal empowerment.
Combining his media, legal and mountaineering background, David lectures
internationally, sharing his views and thoughts about life-management skills,
overcoming obstacles and leadership. He also presents uniquely Asian
perspectives on international expeditions Popular lecture topics include
