August 26, 2014 // Franchising.com // New York, NY – World class mountaineer and CEO of Alpenglow Expeditions, Adrian Ballinger will join Precision Concrete Cutting (PCC), a leading concrete cutting agency, as celebrity guest and speaker at PCC's annual team building event which is being held on the 200 miles of rapids that run through the Grand Canyon.
"Who better to motivate us than one of the most accomplished adventurists in the world?" said Aaron Ollivier, President and CEO of Precision Concrete Cutting. "We're excited to have Adrian on our trip and we're looking forward to his motivating presentations and interaction with our franchisees to help them go further in business."
Franchisees from around the country will join Ballinger on a team building expedition, rafting 200 miles on the Colorado River starting at Lees Ferry and after six days, ending at Whitmore Wash and getting helicoptered out. Franchisees partaking in this expedition will experience the scenic wonders of the Grand Canyon, from the upper canyon's cliffs to the crystalline waterfalls.
Ballinger will be participating in the event, discussing the importance of risk taking, leading a team, and decision-making; all lessons he's learned from experience on the world's largest mountains and from being a business leader himself.
"Running a franchise has many similarities to climbing on the world's biggest mountains," says Adrian Ballinger. "There is a clear goal to attain, risks and obstacles along the way to success, significant investments of time and resources, and the challenges and rewards that come with leading a team of individuals."
Adrian Ballinger is a world class mountaineer, business leader, and professional speaker. As founder and head guide of the internationally acclaimed Alpenglow Expeditions, Adrian envisioned a more holistic climbing experience for his clients than the status quo.

What started in 2004 with three trips on one continent with one lead guide has grown into a thriving company running 30 trips annually on 5 continents with six lead guides.
