The Family that Conquered Everest

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind’s greatest feats of human endurance. The grueling expedition to the top of the world’s highest peak is a journey filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges.

In 2008, Alan Mallory and his family took on the challenge and became the first family of four to set foot on the summit. It was a two-month journey filled with emotion, loyalty, boldness and terror. The experiences the team encountered during the expedition were as incredible as they were terrifying. From staggering across ladders spanning bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses, to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night and two of them almost losing their lives forever, every segment of the climb was an exhilarating challenge.

Alan’s book, The Family that Conquered Everest, describes their exciting adventure and is inspirational example of family success and family togetherness. Alan explores the many family adventures and dynamics that prepared them to take on such a challenge together.

Alan’s underlying messages are about personal development and finding the spark within each of us that drives us to do the things we do. By controlling our focus and concentrating on the things we are most passionate about, we are capable of accomplishing great things. It is our own reservations and limiting beliefs about ourselves that hold us back. If we can overcome these self-imposed limitations, there is nothing that we cannot overcome.


Alan's presentations are an engaging visual and emotional journey, supported by many of the stunning photos and short video clips captured along the grueling quest to the top. He highlights the importance of many leadership qualities such as strategic planning, effective communication, teamwork and trust, as well as the mentality and passion involved in conquering one’s own Everest.
