In this engaging presentation Scott will share the insights he has gained
while climbing and leading high-altitude expeditions for over 25 years. Not only will this presentation contain gripping stories from the mountains, but Scott will share the lessons from failure and the strategies for success and how these can be applied to your personal, team and leadership development.


What is it that separates success from failure? What allows some leaders and teams to achieve greatness where others stumble? Today’s business environment is more complex than ever and presents a series of mountains, which must all be scaled. While there is always a leader breaking the trail to the top, they cannot do it alone. Sustained success comes from the synergy of great leadership, teamwork, and personal focus.

This presentation will introduce models and concepts in the areas of leadership, vision, change management, communication, circles of influence, personal accountability, personal drive, team development and goal setting. These concepts are intertwined into Scott’s riveting Everest experience. Each presentation is custom designed to meet your team’s needs so the focus can be on various team and leadership challenges depending on what is most relevant to your organization.

Scott Kress is a noted speaker, author, team building expert, former MBA Professor and leadership consultant, helping organizations turn their teams and leaders into passionate achievers.

Add a book to your keynote

More than just a motivational story, the book includes real tools, techniques and models that people can apply to their lives. Everest is the story, but personal, professional, team, and leadership development is the objective.
