Eric Alexander

Keynote Speaker: World-Class Skier, Climber, Mountaineer & Disability Advocate

Eric Alexander Biography

World-class adventurer and accomplished speaker Eric Alexander has a history of advocating for people with disabilities. He is best known for his remarkable feat of leading his blind friend, Erik Weihenmayer, to a successful summit of Mount Everest. Time magazine called them the greatest team in history to climb Everest. Their ascent was also listed among the top five climbs ever by Outside magazine.

Alexander's unique career of climbing some of the highest and most foreboding peaks with people who have disabilities has given him a profound understanding of leadership and teamwork. He serves both as a dedicated teammate and a leader for world-class teams and expeditions around the globe. Alexander's storytelling, imbued with emotion, authenticity, and humor, draws audiences into these experiences and leaves an indelible impact on their lives.

Throughout his career, Alexander has faced and overcome numerous challenges and fears, including near-fatal falls, pulmonary edema, pneumonia, and personal losses. These experiences have reinforced his belief that success is not only about reaching one's own summit but also about helping others reach theirs. This guiding principle forms the foundation of his motivational speaking.

Alexander enjoys sharing his "recipe" for success, which includes elements such as team spirit, trust, courage, faith, and integrity. Continually seeking new challenges, Alexander perseveres in his climbs and personal endeavors. He encourages individuals to overcome the "Everest's" in their own lives, thereby pushing the boundaries of what they believe they can achieve.

Eric Alexander Speaking Topics

Trust

Eric knows that to succeed as a team each individual on that team must be a person who is trustworthy and must also demonstrate the ability to trust those around them. Eric speaks of the extraordinary trust that the NFB Everest expedition shared and how it contributed to the success of safely reaching Mt. Everest’s 29,035’ summit.

Leadership

In moments of crisis each person will need to have what it takes to lead. As the expedition leader fell ill on summit day and turned back the team faced a critical decision – turn back or move forward. The team chose to take on the responsibility of leadership and made the decision to press on. Opportunities to quit present themselves at every step of our journeys, we all must be willing at times to take the lead and keep striving for our goals.

Integrity

In the high mountains it is critical that people do as they say they will do. Lives depend on following through on promises with action. To survive here, and be successful, a team must be comprised of individuals willing to stand by their word. This lesson carries over into many aspects of our personal and professional lives and is quite a recipe for growth and success.

Faith Based Groups

Eric can tailor a talk speci?cally for faith based groups. As a Christian, his faith helped him through many trials and di?culties. He shares how God’s plan hasn’t been about summits, but about trust - one step at a time.

Innovation

It is innovation which leads to invention. This takes our small steps of progress and transforms them into giant leaps over time, turning what was once thought of as impossible to being totally plausible. The mountain had not changed nor did the route get easier. What had changed was our approach. It is on the way to the top, it is along the journey that we learn, grow, innovate, and adapt. Innovation, like wisdom, is just as those steps up the mountain; each one building on the one before it, the summation of which gets us to our goal.
