Leading in times of challenge and uncertainty Opening Mega Session with Alison Levine

Author of On The Edge–The Art of High Impact Leadership and Founder of The Climb High Foundation
Fri., Feb. 20 | 10:15-11:45 a.m. | GWCC Ballroom

An accomplished adventurer and New York Times best-selling author, Alison Levine successfully completed the Adventure Grand Slam—climbing all seven summits and treks reaching the North and South Poles—a feat heightened by the fact that she lives with a chronic heart condition. Not one to shy away from risk, "Levine uses her amazing experiences to relate remarkable insights while revealing how leadership skills can be learned in any kind of challenging environment—whether it be in the corporate world or climbing peaks in sub-zero temperatures," notes Mike Abrashoff, former navy commander, author of It's Your Ship, and CAMEX '14 Mega Speaker.

Having spent months at a time in some of the world's most dangerous and extreme environments, Levine focuses on creating cohesive teams, taking responsible risks, and developing no-nonsense leaders. Levine's brand of leadership is readily adaptable to our ever-changing and challenging campus retail marketplace.
