Alan is a dynamic and engaging speaker who captivates the entire audience with his inspiring message and stage presence. The profound impact that Alan made was evident by the laughter and tears expressed by many of the attendees at different points throughout his presentation.

“While I have heard others speak and watched documentaries about the ascent to Base Camp, Alan’s talk about his journey to the top of the world is simply amazing and awe-inspiring. I have heard nothing like it before. Within the first 10 minutes, he literally blew past everything that we have heard before and took all of our 2014 Chapter Leader Conference delegates along with him on this journey of a lifetime. At several moments throughout his talk, I felt that I was holding my breath without knowing it because I was so engrossed in his incredible story. What really differentiated Alan from all other professional speakers we have had in the past is that he leveraged his experience and the events throughout his talk to bring home a few important concepts of communication excellence for all our delegates. For the second half of his time with our conference, Alan moderated an interactive session with our 100+ delegates where they discussed and presented ideas about how to improve communications within our own Chapter System. From the feedback that was given, I can say that all of our delegates found that exercise to be extremely beneficial, especially when they were able to draw parallels from different aspects of Alan’s presentation to solve our own problems. For the journey of a lifetime, the amazing pictures and story, and the interactive session about communications excellence, I recommend Alan wholeheartedly if you are looking for an incredible speaker with a great story to tell, a professional engineer, an adventurer and an apt moderator of discussions that round off the whole Alan Mallory experience. Don’t walk… Run and book Alan NOW – you will not be disappointed.”

“We were very pleased to have Alan speak at our annual staff recognition event. More than 250 of our staff members listened with rapt attention as he told the incredible story of his family’s adventure to reach the summit of Mount Everest. His descriptions of the experience brought the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of Nepal to life as we journeyed with the Mallorys from Kathmandu, to Base Camp, across the rickety ladder bridges to the top of the world. Alan’s message highlighted the importance of strategic planning, goal setting and teamwork, all of which resonated well with our team of public health professionals. I would recommend him for any organization seeking to entertain and inspire their team to set lofty goals and dream big.”

“Alan’s presentation was both exhilarating and informative! His storytelling is captivating, allowing his audience to truly visualize this extraordinary journey. Alan expertly demonstrates how the formation of trust is crucial, not only while climbing Mount Everest, but in the work place as well. Instead of flipping through a bunch of wordy PowerPoint slides, he shows you through pictures exactly why it is paramount to be able to build trusting relationships with others. The presentation ensures the audiences’ engagement, as he provides raw and mesmerizing photographs and real video footage from the mountain, and how he expresses the varying emotions one feels while attempting this grueling physical and mental challenge. Alan motivates and inspires, and encourages everyone to see the value in trusting others and taking time to establish those positive relationships in the workplace. I highly recommend this presentation for its knowledge on the importance of increasing productivity and essential camaraderie in the workplace.”
