Dinner Meeting: Monday September 14, 2015
Alan Mallory - "Project Everest"

Presenter: Alan Mallory


Registration is open.


Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind’s greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month quest to reach the highest point on earth is a journey filled with unparalleled challenges and some of the roughest and most extreme conditions imaginable.

Alan’s dynamic presentation is focused on developing leadership capacity and strengthening teams by reinforcing the professional development skills that are essential for success in any endeavor. It highlights the essential steps and processes that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as a metaphor and example of such a project.

This exciting program is structured around the Mallory family’s two-month Everest expedition where Alan, along with his father, brother and sister set a world record after climbing through some of the most arduous and terrifying conditions imaginable. From Alan’s terrifying experience of running out of oxygen on the summit ridge to when they thought they had lost his sister Laura forever, it seemed as though every section of the climb had some terrifying challenge to overcome.
