Adventurer and Mountaineer
South African mountaineer Cathy O’Dowd was the first woman to climb Mount Everest from both sides.
An internationally acclaimed inspirational speaker, she shares with her audience lessons of leadership, team dynamic
and goal achievement, learnt from some of the world’s most spectacular challenges.
She will be telling us what it takes to go beyond Everest - how climbers innovate when the world’s highest mountain
has been reduced to a queue of paying clients. How a team plans for a high Himalaya climb that has never been done
before and what happens when the plan turns out to be inadequate for the extreme reality of the challenge.
Through innovative use of technology, you will be joining her in the key decision moments on the climb.
