MOTIVATIONAL & KEYNOTE SPEAKING
In 2007, Mike Allsop became one of a very small number of New Zealand climbers to have summited Mt Everest. Then, in 2013, he became one of a handful of adventurers to have completed 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents, raising over $75,000 for charity.
But this isn’t a talk about how to climb Everest or run a marathon. It’s a talk about how to achieve the things that seem impossible. These core principles will help you draw parallels in your own life, both personally and professionally.
He speaks from the heart about the power of goal setting. As a young boy from a single-parent home, Mike’s dream of becoming an Air New Zealand captain seemed impossible. But that didn’t stop him from achieving that goal, nor did it stop him from climbing the world’s highest mountain.
Mike has spoken at a wide range of major events. These include international conferences at TEDx, Flight Center, The Boeing Company and the New York Explorers Club, to local events such as Air New Zealand’s Accelerated Leadership Programme. He has shared his story with audiences of up to 10,000 people, but gets just as much satisfaction from speaking at schools, speaking to thousands of kids every year.
Hearing Mike recount his experiences will take you on a surprising, emotional journey of courage and companionship, life and death. More importantly, it will help you realise that there’s no point in wondering ‘what if?’
