Our Team

Co-founder - Mike Lim

Co-founder/director of InnoTrek since 2001, Mike is responsible for the development of the company and training of its personnel by creating various programs for students, facilitators and teachers alike. Mike’s background in the outdoors and sports stems back to his days as a Royal Ranger, school's leader, Commando and National Dragon Boater.

 

Mike spent 2 months training under The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) on Basic Mountaineering recognised under UIAA. The course was conducted at 5400m above sea level in Nepal covering mountain navigation, Danger in Mountains, basic Ice Climbing and Mountain Rescue skills. Upon completion, he led a group to scale Fansipan (3140m) in SAPA, Vietnam and Poon Hill (3210M) in Ghorepani, Nepal. From the mountain to the sea, Mike continued his water training after spending 7 days in New Zealand with a renown Kayak School running down 3 of NZ's popular rivers, polishing his kills in paddling and rescue and most importantly, understanding them.

Professional Development Manager - Michael Lim

As an avid Sea Scout, Michael spends a majority of his time devoting to better the youth with water sports. Today as a manager, he and his team manages the largest fleet of kayaks owned by a private vendor. A keen paddler since his early teens, he is a highly active coach and paddler, often out on the water paddling for himself or coaching others to either improve their own personal performance or to become coaches. Michael now shares the same passion he has for the seas with the wilderness and is always looking for ways to combine the two.

He has an extensive experience of leading and coaching adventure sports. Michael has coached and led sea kayaking trips; he now has his eye on a number of  future challenges including open crossings, coastal explorations and trips that access remote sea cliff climbing from sea kayaks. His experience in managing people and coordinating programs makes him highly valued as a fellow facilitator and coach.

Known to many as a knowledgable person who is able to impart his skills to others, he has been a key figure in the team when it comes to facilitating programs.
