About Alison Levine
Alison Levine served as team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition, climbed the Seven Summits and skied to the North and South Poles. A history-making adventurer who also spent time in the business world, she has survived sub-zero temperatures, hurricane-force winds and sudden avalanches – and that was while climbing the corporate ladder! In her New York Times best-selling book, “On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments,” Levine asserts that the principles that apply to the world of extreme adventure also apply to demanding business environments. A former part-time faculty member at West Point, Alison Levine understands what it takes to lead teams through challenging situations. On stage, she uses stunning imagery from her various expeditions to demonstrate how progress can be made going backward, why egos are a good thing and how complacency can kill you. One of today’s most in-demand speakers, she inspires audiences to push themselves further than they ever thought possible.
