    David Snow's Speech Descriptions

    One Step Beyond: Moving Beyond Complacency To Reach Peak Potential

    In this special presentation, David weaves exciting true story (complete with pictures and videos) with important business lessons learned through his failures in both the corporate world and mountaintop adventures. Your audience will discover:

    * What a “right rope team” is and why it's essential to have in every aspect of their lives…
    * How to feel the failure and power through no matter what trials come their way…
    * What it means to fail on Everest (including jaw dropping tidbits that will make your audience GASP out loud – and what they can learn from it)…
    * Stories of mountain climbers they've never heard of (and why they should care)…

    EXTINGUISHING YOUR BLAME THROWER

    How did David, a late arrival to mountain climbing, achieve the “seven summits” feat that very few mountain climbers achieve?

    How did he become a successful international entrepreneur when few ambitious entrepreneurs ever build a sustainable business? The answer is not talent nor intelligence nor money nor courage, but another attribute, one that has helped achieve success throughout his life: Persistence.

    SELECTING YOUR ROPE TEAM

    Absolute Accountability Persistence is why he pushed his way into the university of his choice, why he built a thriving sales practice in tough

    Economic times, why he became a successful inter-continental entrepreneur, and why a crushing failed attempt on Everest in 2017 did not dissuade him from a second assault on Everest the next year.
    For most people, according to Snow, persistence is the difference between success and failure. Persistence is why an actor or writer or athlete emerges from the millions of aspiring actors, writers and amateur athletes to have a successful career. Persistence is why some entrepreneurs finally create the companies that revolutionize industries, even if they first failed repeatedly. And persistence is why some people have successful lives, while others face years of frustration and disappointment.
