The audience of over 65 guests listened with rapt attention as Mr. Inglis engaged with the audience in an interesting talk that touched upon life experiences using mountaineering as a metaphor for business and life, utilising his wide experience in the mountains, vineyards and boardrooms. Mr. Inglis spoke about his experience of being stuck in an ice cave for about for 13.5 days while on a search and rescue trial climb. Mr. Inglis described his zeal with the phrase ‘your attitude determines your altitude’. Emphasising on his survival motto – “Knowledge eliminates fear” he further spoke about importance of ‘My Space’ a unique lifestyle concept by Rustomjee to pursue passion – “You definitely need ‘My Space’ to find your passion. Passion is the thing that drives everyone. Passion is something that you can aim for and it is the most important thing that we can give to our youth. We need to instill passion in our youth and they will take themselves on a journey through life.”
The event was also graced by a few renowned personalities like Prahlad Kakkar and senior leaders from the Banking, Media, Entertainment and other sectors.
