Speaker Climbs Off 'The Ledge' for OTR Conference

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced Jim Davidson, with Speaking of Adventure, will be the motivational speaker at the 2016 OTR Conference to be held Feb. 17-20, 2016, at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in San Diego. Davidson’s address will take place on Friday, Feb. 19, and is sponsored by BKT Tires.

As a climber for 33 years, and as a high-altitude expedition leader, Davidson is an expert in resilience. He has been on successful ascents in Alaska, Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Ecuador, México, Nepal & Tibet. Along the way, Davidson endured an incredible mountain survival situation.

That epic story was made into a one-hour TV episode of "I Shouldn't Be Alive," which broadcasts around the world on the Discovery Network. His amazing survival tale, and the lessons he learned from it, are shared in his best-selling book “The Ledge.” It was selected one of the Best Books of The Year by Amazon and it won the National Outdoor Book Award.

“We are thrilled to host Jim as the 2016 OTR Conference motivational speaker,” says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield. “He has some incredible stories to share that will teach critical lessons of resilience.”
