This Year’s Speaker

John Zeckendorf – Tasmanian Entrepreneur

John Zeckendorf

What’s the difference between working for royalty, controlling a $5 billion asset portfolio, and climbing Mt. Everest?

This year’s Guest Speaker, John Zeckendorf, is one of the only people in the world qualified to answer that question after doing all three.

The entrepreneurial owner of Mandala Asset Solutions set himself the challenge of climbing the biggest mountains on every continent in the world and after reaching the top of peaks in Antarctica, Africa, North America, and South America, he became the first Tasmanian to reach the summit of Everest in 2017.

In this critical moment of our state’s history, John brings a unique perspective to what it means to prepare for the unpredictable and yet achieve goals that most would consider impossible.
