Although it would be easy to define Jamie Clarke in a number of exciting phrases, there is one title that has been pursuing him most of his life: Adventurer. A broad word indeed. Some define it as “a bold or unusually risky undertaking.” Jamie defines it as Outcome Unknown. It’s this very idea that shapes his talks to audiences around the world.
Jamie tell more than stories. What he shares is stronger and stranger than fiction. True and courageous. Raw and grounded.
Between expeditions, Jamie founded the Out There Adventure Centre, a retail store in downtown Calgary and LiveOutThere.com, a company ranked by Profit Guide as one of Canada’s 50 fastest-growing corporations and repeatedly nominated for National e-commerce Innovation Awards by Canada Post. In his role as CEO of LiveOutThere.com, Jamie has led his team to the lofty heights of business success.
Jamie illuminates the complexity of challenges organizations and people face daily. His message challenges all of us to live a courageous life — and forces audiences to question and rethink where they are headed. Jamie’s approach is unvarnished candour about his experiences as a leader in today’s VUCA* business climate. It is real and refreshing; most definitely not for the faint of heart, or organizations seeking to maintain the “feel good” status quo.
