First American Women’s Everest Expedition Team Captain & Author of The New York Times Bestseller “On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments”
A history-making adventurer who has completed the Adventure Grand Slam of climbing the Seven Summits (highest peak on each continent) and skiing to both the North and South Poles, Alison Levine understands the commitment and leadership necessary to achieve extreme results. With experience from Wall Street to Mount Everest, and as an adjunct professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Levine shows how teamwork, determination, tenacity and the ability to adapt to a changing environment are as critical in the workplace as they are on the mountain. Levine is also one of few who have presented at the highly prestigious World Economic Forum in Davos alongside world leaders and top CEOs. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments.
