Opening Keynote – High Altitude Leadership: Surviving K2, the Killer Mountain

September 26, 2016, 1:00 pm

Twenty-five climbers set out for the summit of K2, the world’s second tallest mountain. Eighteen would reach the summit. Two would die. On a mountain with a death-to-summit ratio of 35%, it was the most successful day in K2’s epic history. Leading an international expedition and filming it for NBC TV, Chris Warner captured the mountain in all its brutality. Now he is bringing his Emmy-nominated footage and tales of heroism and partnership, narcissism and cowardice, to Rendezvous.

Chris uses his gripping stories to illustrate the need for all of us to build better teams. He helps the audience transfer the leadership lessons by teaching a data-driven, real-world formula for building high-performance teams.
