The students were really buzzing on Friday and really excited by the Conference and what you did for them.

Did you meet expectations? You smashed them to smithereens!!

I like working with Paul. He’s a regular, expert-contributor to my Programme at University of Greenwich. His specialism in Hybrid Events is well-developed, novel and in demand in the current changing industry sector environment. I very enthusiastically recommend him.

Lessons From a Mountain: the Story

Lessons from a Mountain began when Paul Cook successfully climbed to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

An Inspiring Challenge

Whilst on his adventure, Paul discovered lessons that enabled him to overcome his own personal limits and push on to the top of the mountain. These are lessons that he now continues to practice on a daily basis in his business life. Kilimanjaro was a catalyst for change in his personal development.

Lessons for Life

As a result of his trip and through his work with Universities he works to help students stand the best possible chance of launching their business careers. He uses the ‘mountain’ as a metaphor to help students overcome their own challenges and teaches them the lessons he learnt.

About Paul Cook

Paul Cook is a well-known figure in the events industry. In 2008 he created Planet Planit, a specialised Content Marketing consultancy that works in the events and hospitality space. Lessons from a Mountain is a brand of Planet Planit Ltd.

Thank you so much for organising today’s lecture with Paul, I’ve learned so much new information today!

Student, Greenwich University

Paul Cook easily builds rapport with students and integrates a combination of humour and his own personality into each subject matter. I always receive excellent feedback from students who have attended Paul’s sessions and I will continue to bring him into the University in order to give students a realistic and highly invaluable insight into the ever demanding world of international event planning.
