Learning to Fly: Lessons from the Air

Embracing Change, Managing Risk and Fear

In today's ever changing world, businesses and individuals are faced with a constant stream of information, choices and change. The traditional pathways to success are also changing, as are perceptions of risk, sustainability and achievement. Steph speaks on the lessons she's learned in the mountains and in the air as a professional climber and wingsuit pilot, and in choosing a highly nontraditional career path. Managing change, embracing failure, understanding risk and fear, cultivating adaptability, preparing for opportunity. Audiences are encouraged to view their own challenges through a new lens, recognizing the power of adversity and evolution, and the value of crafting an uncommon life. – Steph Davis
