Harnessing personal leadership and support teams to excel. Rising to the Challenge is the inspiring story of Rex Pemberton’s climb of Mt Everest at the age of 21. Mixing storytelling with dramatic video, Rex takes the audience on a captivating journey that demonstrates the power of:
•  Self leadership
•  Creating powerful support teams
•  Achieving large and compelling goals
•  Dealing with change
Before he could even step foot on Everest, Rex had to overcome the financial challenge of raising in excess of $200,000 from cynical sponsors. He faced numerous relationship challenges as he sought to find a team he could trust in such a demanding environment.
And then he faced the mental and physical challenges of training and preparing for something bigger than anything he had attempted before.
Not only did Rex overcome these challenges, he leveraged his success on Everest to become the third youngest person in the world to climb the Seven Summits – the highest summit on each continent.
Interactive Workshop:
To further engage the audience and enrich the learning experience, Rex has designed a diagnostic questionnaire that forms part of an interactive workshop on strengthening Self Leadership and Support Teams.

  • Rising to the Challenge can be delivered as a keynote presentation, workshop or as part of an integrated program of high impact learning.

Peak Teams’ Everest uses the backdrop of the Himalayas and the changing world of climbing in a dynamic program that helps leading businesses:
•  Launch a compelling vision
•  Align and engage multiple teams behind a common goal
•  Create a strong culture of shared principles and behaviors
•  Enhance existing leadership frameworks and talent programs
•  Increase leadership capabilities
Everest is one of Peak Teams’ interactive Virtual Adventures. During a Virtual Adventure, business teams are challenged with real life scenarios that Peak Teams facilitators have filmed while climbing mountains, on safari in Africa or surfing around the world. These scenarios, combined with spectacular footage, personal stories and expert facilitation, provide powerful learning experiences.
Everest features a video-based chronology of events as they unfolded for Peak Teams facilitator and keynote speaker Rex Pemberton, on his climb of Everest in 2005.
How the Program Works:
The primary objective of Everest is for multiple teams to come together as one expedition, in order to reach the summit of the world’s highest peak and return safely. There are three main parts of the program: Set Up, Base Camp and Summit.
During the Set Up stage each team has to establish a set of Guiding Principles, appoint a leader and agree on a decision making process. Then the entire room has to align and agree on a Guiding Company they will join for their expedition to Everest.
In the Base Camp and Summit stages, these principles and team alignment are tested by a series of video based scenarios that will challenge and ultimately unite all the teams.

About Keynote Speaker Rex Pemberton

Rex is one of few people in the world to reach the peak of their sport in multiple disciplines, not just one. At the age of 21, Rex made history by becoming the youngest Australian to climb Mt. Everest. He then went on to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, the famous seven summits and was the third youngest person in the world to achieve this remarkable feat.

The next chapter of Rex’s evolution occurred high above the clouds, as he took up skydiving, and then transitioned to wingsuit flying. Transforming from being an expert in one sport to a beginner in another is a significant challenge. Despite all odds, Rex rose to the top of the wingsuit world and now competes at the world championships.

Rex’s looks through the lens of adventure to educate teams on creating clear vision, building powerful cultures, thriving in transformation and leveraging innovation to stay ahead of the competition. His keynote speaking and facilitation experience spans 16 years, multiple cultures and all seven continents.

Consistently the top-rated speaker, Rex shares insights and inspires audiences through his accessibility and storytelling expertise. Rex address thousands of business leaders each year at world class organizations and major conference events. His client list includes top global businesses, including Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Dell EMC, Panasonic, Commonwealth Bank, UBS, Fidelity International, Seagate Technologies and Genentech.
