On 5-6 December 2017, 25 APM directors from the Rhône-Alpes region met at the Montenvers in the Chamonix Valley for their annual meeting. An APM club is an entity that brings together business leaders on a monthly basis to work with an outside expert on various topics in order to grow their businesses sustainably.

The strength of the APM is that it is open to diverse transversal subjects. Bringing both technical and educational material, we reached our base camp, the Montenvers hotel situated at 1900 m, by train.

Mountain Path acts as an expert to raise awareness on issues related to decision-making, cooperation and crisis management. Part of the subject was tackled in the evening by the light of headlamps through a nocturnal orientation race in a snowy mountain area followed by a workshop of self-study under the starry sky before a warm debriefing at the hotel.

The next day, after a safety briefing, three groups went snowshoeing. Participants were confronted with an unforeseen event (an avalanche). This scenario allowed us to focus on the ability to work collectively, on alertness to weak signals and on how to switch over to « crisis mode ».

The Montenvers is particularly well suited for this type of seminar and training, given the quality of its hospitality and the variety and beauty of the site of the Mer de Glace.

The Summit of Minds: A first engagement for Mountain Path

From 22 to 24 September 2017 Chamonix hosted the Summit of Minds, an international meeting with 250 participants from 5 continents organised by Thierry Malleret, director of the Monthly Barometer, with the support of Anadeo.

Between plenary sessions and reflection workshops each participant could appreciate the depth of exchanges on the main topics.

During a break, Mountain Path organised some more athletic activities at the Gaillands, such as a literary walk around the lake, a thematic hike and a climbing session where an incident had to be handled. Based on an experiential approach, the teams had to manage unforeseen events (orientation, first aid, rope techniques …) all under the supervision of guides.

At the end of the session a debriefing made it possible to link the experiences to the corporate world. Mountain Path’s first engagement confirmed the relevance of the concept and its potential. The participants and the organisers warmly thanked us for the original and interesting activities that we proposed.

Rendezvous at the next Summit of Minds in September 2018!
