FRIDAY – District All Club Luncheon – Grand Casino- Shawnee REGISTER HERE

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind’s greatest feats of endurance. The grueling expedition to the top of the world’s highest peak is a journey filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges and some of the roughest, most extreme conditions imaginable.

In 2008, Alan Mallory and his family took on the challenge and became the first family of four to set foot on the summit. It was a two-month journey filled with emotion, loyalty, boldness and terror and the experiences the team encountered during the expedition were as incredible as they were terrifying. From staggering across ladders spanning bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night and two members of the team almost losing their lives forever, every segment of the climb was an exhilarating venture.

Alan is an international speaker, author and professional development trainer who is passionate about leadership and human performance. He studied engineering at Queen’s University and has worked all over the world as a mechanical engineer and project manager but his true passion is in working with people to reach new heights in the way we think and the actions we take. Alan has always had a keen interest in discovering what drives us to do what we do and how we can use this knowledge to improve our lives and the lives of those around us.

Alan is also a college professor, avid adventurer and outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys many different activities but his favorite activities are those spent out in the wilderness and those that involve strategy and problem solving. He speaks English and Spanish and loves to travel the world and explore new places.
