Alan Hobson: Cancer Survivor & Climb Back from Cancer, Mt. Everest Climber & Summiteer “It’s okay to fail. It’s not okay to fold.”
“The magnitude of our mountains may at first defy us, but our ability to climb back defines us.”
“Persist, persist, persist – intelligently.”
“Character is cut from the stone of struggle.”
“On the other side of fear is freedom.
Alan Hobson’s first non-guided, corporately sponsored and self-organized expedition to Mt. Everest missed the summit by 3,000 feet when his team’s high camp was blasted off the mountain by gale force winds.
He returned home to judgments that he had failed. But instead of giving up, he used his hard-won experience to begin again more intelligently.
Three years later he was back on Everest with half the budget of his first expedition, half the personnel and no bottled oxygen. This time, his team missed the top by just two city blocks when their lead climber developed severe high altitude sickness. Expedition members decided to try to rescue him rather than continue blindly for the summit. They saved his life.
Still, Alan again returned home to allegations that he and his team had failed.
Undeterred, he returned a third time to the mountain three years later and finally made it safely to and from the top of the world.
Three years after that, he was diagnosed with an aggressive blood cancer and given less than a year to live. Again, Alan defied the skeptics.
He made a 100% recovery and today he is almost as physically fit as he was prior to his last Everest expedition. And, he is officially medically cured.
Alan shows audiences how to turn setbacks into comebacks and obstacles into opportunities.
Swifter, Higher…Smarter! It happens to everyone. You establish a goal, but fall short of achieving it. You try again, but a competing priority suddenly requires you to shift your focus, or your resources. Then, you finally succeed, only to be blindsided by the unexpected.
Alan Hobson faced all of these situations duringhis three non-guided, corporately sponsored and self-organized expeditions to Mt. Everest and while climbing back from cancer. In his spellbinding fully personalized presentations, he draws invaluable connections between the priceless lessons of his life experiences and the specific challenges you face personally and organizationally. He does this by using an exhaustive personal preparatory research process that enables him to link his experiences with your unique challenges and opportunities in perfect context with 100% accuracy.
This has earned him the distinction of being one of the finest adventure speakers in the world.
Alan inspires audiences to transform crises into opportunities and emerge swifter, stronger and smarter than ever before. Scaling the Inner Everest Three years after Everest, Alan faced his biggest mountain.
Diagnosed with acute leukemia (an aggressive blood cancer) and given less than a year to live, once again, he refused to give up. Today, he is one of less than a few dozen people ever to regain an elite level of fitness after an adult blood stem cell transplant to eradicate the disease.
Now cancer-free for over nine years, he is officially medically cured. He is living proof that no mountain of any kind is insurmountable. This provides a powerful new perspective – a true peak perspective. Presentations with Unparalleled Personalization
His team worked for 33 continuous hours and saved the man’s life, but it meant postponing the achievement of their goal. Discouraged, but not defeated, Alan walked away again with another set of precious lessons and started over on his third expedition with renewed determination. This time, he succeeded in safely climbing to and from the top of the world.
Then came an avalanche of the unexpected. In today’s tough and uncertain economic times, instant adaptability and psychological resilience are essential to success. Alan shows audiences how to rise to the challenge of cataclysmic change and effectively re-prioritize without losing sight of their mission, vision, values or objectives. Beyond that, the possibilities are limitless – if we are able to turn a crisis into an opportunity. Executing with Excellence
He shows audiences that even when times are hard, if we remain focused on executional excellence and maintain a relentless upward drive toward higher performance, we really can achieve the ultimate. His powerful personal example resonates on an individual and organizational level. When this is combined with his trademark personalization ofevery presentation in perfect context and with 100% accuracy, the results are impressive. A must-see for any individual or organization aspiring to greater heights. Rising to the Challenge of Change In today’s environment of uncertainty and constant change, Alan’s messages of tenacity and teamwork could not be more timely. He offers practical tools for managing the unexpected, as well as those challenges we can more easily predict. The hard-won wisdom he has garnered on the outer and inner Everests of his life has real world relevance, applicability and power. When he links it directly to your specific challenges using his trademark personalization process, the results are palpable. He is a tough man for tough times but a master at making his messages immediately applicable to you individually and organizationally – the perfect guide for anyone facing an Everest of ambiguity and the unknown.
