Keynote Speaker: Alison Levine

Alison Levine Keynote Speaker

Alison Levine knows what it’s like to survive (and thrive) in the world’s toughest environments. She served as team captain of the first American Women's Everest Expedition, scaled the "Seven Summits," and skied to the North and South Poles—making history along the way.  In addition to climbing mountains, she also spent time climbing the corporate ladder in sales, in marketing and then on Wall Street after earning her MBA from Duke University.

In her  New York Times bestseller, On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments, Alison asserts that the principles that apply to the world of extreme adventure also apply to demanding business environments.

A former adjunct professor at West Point, Alison understands what it takes to lead teams through challenging situations. She is the recipient of the 2019 Ellis Island Medal of Honor which recognizes individuals whose accomplishments in their field and inspired service to our nation are cause for celebration.
