Nancy Feagin: Motivational Speaker

Nancy Feagin is a climbing guide with over 12 years of experience, and became the 11th American Women to summit Mount Everest in the Spring of 2001. Nancy has appeared in several TV and film productions such as the BBC TV, "Good Morning America" and the IMAX films, "Extreme, Zion - Treasure of God" and "Extreme" . Her expeditions have also appeared National Geographic Magazine. Nancy holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.

KEY THEMES

• How to Overcome Obstacles

A combination of strategy, teamwork, and above all unflagging commitment to work through obstacles is necessary to succeed.

• How to be Flexible and Dynamic in Problem Solving

You must have the flexibility to retreat, regroup, and try again when faced with setbacks.

• How to Persevere in the Face of the Impossible

Having the will to continue when it feels impossible is critical to accomplishing overwhelmingly large goals.

• How to Work as a Team Toward a Common Goal

Support, trust, respect and communication are the ingredients for a successful team.

• How to Maintain Belief in the Goal

Total belief in the ultimate goal is necessary for success.

"The Power of Commitment: Rising Above Overwhelming Adversity on the Ascent of Mount Everest" is Nancy’s riveting story of her ascent of the world’s highest mountain, in the face of obstacles that would have defeated mountaineers with less drive. Nancy’s warm personal style makes her insights about teamwork, perseverance, and personal resourcefulness all the more compelling. The result is an utterly captivating presentation that will not be forgotten.

Invited to be the lead climber on the 2001 "Everyone Has an Everest Expedition", Nancy forged a highly dependable team out of a diverse group of strangers and proceeded to overcome the "usual" daunting obstacles encountered by Himalayan expeditions: incredibly complex logistics, potentially dangerous weather, challenging group dynamics, and intense mental and physical exertion.

Then, at Camp II, personal disaster struck – Nancy developed a case of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema, an unpredictable and often fatal condition that forces climbers off the mountain and out of the game, sometimes forever. She was now forced to descend slowly and come to terms with catastrophic failure.

After days of soul searching and despite near-universal advice to leave, Nancy decided to fly in the face of all conventional wisdom and make another bid for the summit. By any measure, the odds of her succeeding were minimal, but without renewed commitment they would be zero. Incredibly- by relying on the team she had built and her own dauntless will - ten exhausting days later, Nancy reached the summit of Everest.

CLIENT COMMENTS

"After researching many top adventure professionals we selected Nancy for our conference keynote speaker based on who she is, not just what she does. While she is one of the world’s most accomplished climbers who constantly push the edge, her story is not just about the rock or the mountain. It is about what people are capable of when the put aside ego and focus on their dreams."

— Reichart Leadership Group, booking for Roche Pharmaceuticals

"Nancy Feagin’s show is like her climbing career: understated, subtle, and as it sneaks into your consciousness, pretty amazing. Her presentation conveys a sense of commitment and adventure. Definitely one of the AMC’s highlights this year"

— Arizona Mountaineering Club

Nancy Feagin's presentation of her personal saga experienced while summiting Mt. Everest had us on the edge of our seats. Her near death from high altitude sickness, amazing recovery subsequent summiting was told with the emotion only some one with such an experience can express. I've heard several mountaineers sagas of summiting Everest. Nancy Feagin's is special and not to be missed.           John Bergfeld
