Matthew Walker is the founder of Inner Passage, which supports personal and professional development through adventure.
“Adventure is a lifestyle choice and perspective,” Walker says, “that reinforces living with intention and purpose.” He demonstrates and teaches this concept through his Five Elements of Adventure framework that explores high endeavor, uncertain outcome, total commitment, tolerance for adversity, and great companionship. Each of these concepts are explored in his book, Adventure in Everything: Creating a Life of Authenticity, Purpose, and Inspiration.
Walker is a world-class mountain climber, motivator, coach, speaker, and professional facilitator. At Inner Passages, he facilitates once-in-a-lifetime adventures, coaches individuals to reach their personal and professional goals, and offers professional team development workshops.
His work evoking adventure and high endeavor has supported success at Marriott, Medtronic, Nike, Microsoft, YPO, Active.com, Carmichael Training Systems, Apollo Data Technologies, and hundreds of individual clients.
Certified as a Single Pitch Instructor by the American Mountain Guide Association, Walker has completed the AMGA Rock Instructor training and has held Wilderness First Responder medical certification since 1995.
