President of Grand Dynamics International
Tim Walther has been the driving force behind the business for over a decade. Tim is a keynote speaker, facilitator, salesman, business strategist and owner of the company mascot, the lovable Chocolate Laborador, Telos. On any given day you might find Tim climbing a remote cliff, diving for Abalone, playing the drums or cheffing it up for friends and family. Tim is an international ambassador and has traveled the world seeking out remote adventures while sharing worldly philosophies on universal topics such as happiness, soul mates and living to one’s true potential. An author of Seeking True North: The Pathway to Freedom, Beauty and Success, Tim indeed enjoys the seeking, and embracing the process he calls life.
Scotty was first inspired by group dynamics in his Organization Behavior class in college and has been involved in educational and professional development ever since. He has worked for Outward Bound (OB) for 24 years, across nine states and led OB professional courses for the last fifteen years, both on-site and in wilderness settings. In addition, Scotty is also a guide for the Exum Guide Service and School of American Mountaineering in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In this role, Scotty instructs individuals and teams of all ages on rock climbing and leads climbs throughout the Teton Range including the Grand Teton! This enables him to share his love of mountains and teamwork with climbers and business groups alike.
When Scotty is not working, he loves spending time with his family. As a father of two beautiful girls, Scotty enjoy building igloo’s with his family, skiing powder, mountaineering, climbing and guiding routes in the summer. Scotty is also gluten-free and the author of several Gluten-Free Chewy Granola Bar recipes which adds a great touch (and taste!) for clients that he guides up the Grand Teton on our annual Grand Adventure and on other various mountaineering routes.

Mike began his career in leadership over 19 years ago with the YMCA, specializing in summer camping programs, outdoor education, and ropes course facilitation.
Mike went on to work extensively in the recreation and outdoor education fields, and in 2000 he shifted gears, becoming wildly interested in how adults learn, and the best ways to teach them. He earned his Master’s degree in Instructional Design and Technology from California State University, Chico, and uses this academic rigor to compliment the high-energy, cooperative and interactive programs he offers the world.
Brandon also has a strong background in business finance, technology and management, which allows him to better understand the challenges facing many teams as well as potential solutions.
In his free time, he enjoys meditation, traveling, snow skiing, rock climbing, hiking and spending time with friends and family.
