Risk & Reward: Lessons from the world’s greatest mountains
SPEAKER: Steve House
Join extreme climber, author, and entrepreneur Steve House as he shares tales—and lessons—from surviving 30 years at the highest level of the world’s most dangerous sport. Managing risk is a business topic attendees are familiar with, but when the risk is to life, do the strategies change? If so, how? And when failure comes, what then?
Steve will take the audience along on his world-record ascent of the biggest, most dangerous mountain wall in the world. Five years on, riding high on a history-making career, and it all came crashing down; 100 feet down. 30 broken bones. Collapsed Lung. A narrow survival.
Rehab and recovery follow, but so do the doubts. What now?
Many of you have climbed your first mountain: Made your own history, captained your own success. But have you asked yourself: What now? What does it mean? If this is all I do in my life, if I were die today, would I be content?
Climbing that second mountain is what Steve does today. Now leading four small businesses, having authored four books, built an instructional video series on the principles of risk, and become a mentor and coach to climbers and athletes worldwide.
This, clearly, is the important work of life. The work that each attendee will find him or herself doing now or in the near future. The work of legacy, building communities, teaching, mentoring, visioning. Sharing lessons learned that are so profound, as you speak them, you surprise even yourself. And you are not alone in this journey. Those that follow Steve’s journey will gain insight into their own.
