Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of humanitys greatest feats of endurance. The grueling expedition to the top of the worlds highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges and some of the roughest, most extreme conditions imaginable. In 2008, Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record with three members of his family after an incredible self-guided expedition on the mountain. The expedition challenged the mental, emotional and physical limits of their entire beings and at every stage of the ascent demanded an unwavering commitment to resilience and perseverance. Alans dynamic program focuses on developing leaders and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the professional development and project management skills that are essential for success in any project. It highlights the processes that are involved in planning and executing difficult projects by using the challenge of Everest as an example of such a project. It is an engaging visual and educational journey that is supported by many of the stunning photos and videos captured along the expedition.
