Motivational Speaker: Brent Bishop

Brent Bishop: Climber, Environmentalist, and Businessman.

Brent Bishop, the son of the late legendary climber Barry Bishop, was the first American legacy to follow in his father's footsteps and summit Mt. Everest.  Brent first reached the summit of Everest in 1994, and again climbed the mountain in the 2002, with the National Geographic Mt. Everest Expedition that marked the 50th anniversary of the first ascent of the mountain.  National Geographic produced the documentary, Surviving Everest, based on this climb.  In 1994 Brent co-founded, the Sagarmatha Environmental Expedition (SEE), an organization committed to cleaning trash off the slopes of Everest.  Brent has run SEE since 1994, and since its inception, the organization has removed more than 25,000 pounds of trash from the mountain.

Brent was born in Washington, D.C. in 1966 and began climbing as a child with his father on the East Coast and Rocky Mountains, and he has been climbing ever since.  Brentís climbing and work as a guide has taken him throughout the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Antarctic.  Brent received the Lowell Thomas Award from The Explorers Club, the international professional exploration society.  The award recognizes explorers who have distinguished themselves in unique and distinct ways.  Brent is also the recipient of the American Alpine Clubís, David Brower Award, presented for environmental achievement. 

Bishop received an undergraduate degree in economics from Duke University in 1988, and an MBA from the University of Washington in 1993.  Brentís business experience ranges from consulting with fortune 500 companies to internet start up ventures.  He currently splits time between Bozeman, Montana and Seattle, Washington, where he is either working as a business development consultant or climbing.

Brent Bishop and his brother-in-law Greg Mortenson (Author of Three Cups of Tea) have begun Pakistan's first porter training program which teaches conservation, hygiene and sanitation, first aid, and crevasse rescue. Over 600 porters have attended the training. The two also began a began a Karakoram basecamp cleanup that is entirely managed and supervised by local Baltis. This is done at a fraction of the cost of foreign "cleanup" expeditions. Over a period of two years the Baltis removed a staggering 15,800 pounds of garbage.

Brent is a great speaker who is truly able to bridge the world of climbing and the world of business through his wealth of mountaineering and professional experience.  The Bishop family connection with Everest that spans over 45 years, adds a unique and historical perspective.  His presentations draw on an exquisite body of mountain images, while his themes focus on the importance of vision, goal setting, leadership, and teamwork needed to reach your goals.  Audiences love Brentís ability to relate the lessons learned in the mountains to the business world.  His presentations truly inspire, motivate, and enlighten
