ASAP is delighted to introduce Cathy O’Dowd as our keynote speaker for the 2017 ASAP Convention.
Cathy is the first woman in the world to climb Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain, from both its north and south sides. Her first ascent of Everest happened in the midst of the chaotic events that form of the basis of the ‘true story’ behind the 2015 Hollywood movie Everest.
The years Cathy spent on or around Everest were for her a degree ‘in living’. The insights she discovered about herself, and about individuals and teams under intense stress in the face of overwhelming challenge, are ones she has been sharing with her corporate audiences ever since.
Her stories touch on themes of importance to anyone trying to run successful projects and get the best out of people. She has been a professional speaker for nearly 20 years and has presented her message to companies in over 40 countries on six continents. Join an expedition with Cathy O’Dowd as she shares her stories about leading teams and executing plans in high-risk, high-stress environments, while striving for big goals. Learn why plans fail and how teams crumble, and discover the key tools that ensure you will get to the top.
Cathy remains an active adventurer and was most recently part of the team that did the first ascent of Nanga Parbat via the Mazeno ridge.
