A passion for emergency medicine and rescue in wilderness settings led Dr. Will Smith, MD, Paramedic to found Wilderness and Emergency Medicine Consulting (WEMC) with the goal of sharing his expertise and providing comprehensive, up-to-date consulting services.
His current job, location and training opportunities allow him to practice medicine in a setting that he has tailored his profession to—wilderness and emergency medicine. As an avid outdoorsman and dedicated physician, he continues to apply and master his medical and rescue skills in wilderness settings.
He found niches that allowed him to combine his medical skills with the outdoors as he worked on ski patrol and began more climbing and other outdoor sports. While attending medical school at the University of Washington through the WWAMI program, he was able to study medicine in rural areas of the western United States and in Queensland, Australia. After completing his emergency medicine residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, he found his dream job as an attending emergency medicine physician in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Since moving to Jackson, he has also become medical director and an active member of the Teton County Search and Rescue team. In addition, as a hands-on medical director for Grand Teton National Park, he trains and helps the climbing rangers in a variety of wilderness situations.
When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in
New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting
knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
