Stacy Allison
"In any endeavor, leaders should inspire members of the team with a passion for success, but within the framework of team effort. One of the most crucial things to realize, feel and remember is that when one team member succeeds, the entire team succeeds." -- Stacy Allison

Mountains, though seemingly a planet apart from the world of business, are a rich source of practical insights for executives, managers and individuals alike. They are high-altitude laboratories for leadership, team dynamics, risk-taking, vision and change management. Stacy Allison combines her vast mountain climbing experiences with her business knowledge to create energetic and dynamic keynotes that consistently hit the mark to inspire and provide tremendous take home value.

Stacy Allison began major alpine climbing at the age of 21 and achieved rapid success. Within a year, she reached the top of Alaska's Mt. McKinley, the highest point in North America, and was part of the first successful women's ascent of Ama Dablam, the 22,495 foot peak known as Nepal's Matterhorn. These accomplishments provided the groundwork for much greater accomplishments.

On her first attempt on Mt. Everest, the world's highest mountain at 29,028 feet, Stacy did not summit. One of the worst storms to hit the mountain in 40 years trapped her party in a snow cave at 23,500 feet for five days. Stacy reflects on the challenge: "If you see yourself as trying to beat the mountain, eventually the mountain will win. You don't conquer mountains, you cooperate with them."

Stacy returned to Mt. Everest with the Northwest American Everest Expedition, and after 29 days on the mountain, she became the first American woman to reach the summit on September 29, 1988. Stacy went on to lead a successful K2 expedition, the world's second highest mountain, considered to be the most difficult peak on Earth to climb.

Stacy recounts the Everest challenge in her first book, Beyond The Limits: A Woman's Triumph on Everest. A truly triumphant adventure story, this book is a primer for anyone who has ever faced a mountain, physical or metaphorical, and reached for its summit. Stacy's latest book, Many Mountains to Climb: Reflections on Competence, Courage and Commitment, is an exciting anecdotal account of climbing challenges practically applied to help you plot your way to professional and personal success.

In addition to speaking, Stacy is also the president of a residential building company, a member of the Board of Trustees of National University, a successful author and a committed mother of two. In the spirit of giving back to her community, Stacy chairs the American Lung Association of Oregon's largest fundraiser, Reach the Summit.

  • Beyond The Limits: Lessons from Everest : Stacy's breathtaking multimedia presentation is a journey that will inspire you to apply the lessons of risk, motivation, challenge and change learned at high altitude to the down-to-earth aspects of everyday life. Stacy will show you how to thrive in your workplace through personal vision, relationship building, clear communication and accepting responsibility for choices, actions, and outcomes. This presentation will encourage and inspire you to take a visionary look at opportunities and move beyond your limits. Stacy's signature keynote!

  • We Can Get There From Here: Teamwork, It Works! : It's true for any team project - cooperation works! More than an idea, teamwork is essential for your organization's success and survival. In this presentation, you will learn how to create a team environment that will improve the quality of life and level of performance for you, your co-workers and your organization.

  • Reaching New Heights: Risk-Taking : Our accountability to ourselves and others defines our character. It determines our success and our ability to adjust to the challenges, changes and risks confronting us in today's world. Stacy demonstrates how the principles involved in climbing mountains apply to our everyday lives and how we can all tap into our abilities and climb into the future with confidence and courage.
