Main Topic: Project Everest: Essential Steps for Successful Projects

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of humanity’s greatest feats of endurance. The grueling expedition to the top of the world’s highest peak is a journey filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges and some of the roughest, most extreme conditions imaginable.  In 2008, Alan Mallory and his family took on the challenge and set a world record after an incredible self-guided expedition.  Alan creates a powerful and unforgettable journey for his audience by integrating captivating mountaineering and adventure stories with his innovative leadership and project management experience.  His message is about how we as Project Managers can reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take.  His talk highlights the essential processes that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project.

His talk motivates us to find the spark within each of us that drives us to do the things we do and how we can use this knowledge to improve our overall health and happiness.  By controlling our focus and concentrating on the areas we are most passionate about, we are capable of accomplishing great things. It is our own reservations and limiting beliefs about ourselves that hold us back.  When we can overcome these self-imposed limitations, there is nothing that we cannot achieve.

Main Presenter: Alan Mallory, P.Eng,  P.E,  PMP.

Alan’s dynamic presentations and workshops focus on developing great leaders and strengthening teams by reinforcing the professional development and leadership skills that are essential for success in any endeavor. They highlight the essential processes that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project. They are also engaging visual and educational journeys that are supported by many of the stunning photos and short video clips captured along the expedition. Alan’s programs reinforce the importance of many leadership qualities such as strategic planning, effective communication, risk management, teamwork and development of trust within professional relationships as well as the mentality and passion involved in conquering one’s own Everest. 

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 difficulty to overcome. The powerful lessons learned during the intense and often critical situations encountered during the expedition can be applied to all walks of life.
