It happens to everyone. You establish a goal, but fall short of achieving it. You try again, but a competing priority suddenly requires you to shift your focus, or your resources. Then, you finally succeed, only to be blindsided by the unexpected. Alan Hobson faced all of these situations on his three expeditions to Mt. Everest and while climbing back from cancer. In his spellbinding personalized presentations, he draws invaluable connections between the priceless lessons of his life experiences and the challenges we all face in our personal and professional lives.

Hobson’s second Everest attempt missed the summit by just two city blocks when the expedition’s lead climber came down with life-threatening high altitude sickness. Alan’s team worked for 33 continuous hours and saved the man’s life, but it meant postponing the achievement of their goal. Discouraged, but not defeated, he walked away again with another set of precious lessons and started over with renewed determination. In today’s tough economic times, instant adaptability and psychological resilience are essential to success. Alan shows audiences how to rise to the challenge of cataclysmic change and effectively re-prioritize without losing sight of their mission, vision and objectives.
