After spending nearly twenty years testing the limits of human endurance in the most inhospitable environments on the planet, Kevin has developed a sixth sense, a ‘wild wisdom’, that allows him to succeed at everything he does. “There’s nothing special about me,” he says steadfastly when asked, “I don’t have some hidden talent or gift, I just know how to get things done.” He inspires audiences with his core belief that all of us are capable of achieving big goals.
The world is more connected than ever before. But with that connection, comes a barrage of information that is hard to sort through from fact & fiction. We see it in agriculture, energy, manufacturing, and of course you see it in your industry too. The impacts are real when we look at what that information can do to public trust, as more regulations & buyer demands are implemented, some of which aren’t any safer, but merely a nod to misunderstood public pressure. Something can be done. Something needs to be done. Public outreach through social media, dinner conversations, grocery check-out lines and more can all help. But you’ve got to stand up for your industry if you want to have an impact on it.

Core6 Environmental would like to invite BEST 2019 participants to join us for a mountain bike ride on Whistler’s fabulous trails. We’ll ride at noon on Wednesday, May 8th. The ride will begin promptly at 12:00 pm, and the group will meet in front of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Hotel and ride from there to the trail head. You should be comfortable riding for 2 to 3 hours on technical single track trails and have at least an intermediate level of fitness and bike handling skills. The ride will be on Intermediate (blue square) rated trails, where you can expect to encounter trail obstacles such as roots, rocks, and ladder bridges, and a dual suspension mountain bike is recommended. Post ride rehydration and refueling will be in the Mallard lounge! Please use common sense and caution when riding, and ride within your ability level. The organizer bears no responsibility for the condition of trails, or for potential injury or damage to equipment. All participants ride at their own risk. By participating in this activity, riders agree to this disclaimer. For more information, or to sign up, contact Tom Hudson at Core6 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
