After successfully completing a self-guided expedition on Mount Everest and setting a world record with four members of his family, an international speaker, author and performance coach will make a cameo in Invermere.

The District of Invermere (DOI) has invited Alan Mallory to present his life’s lessons from Reaching New Heights to the Columbia Valley community at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 8th at the Columbia Valley Centre.

“The District of Invermere is bringing Alan Mallory in on Friday, November 8th to run a leadership workshop for the District staff during the day,” Cortney Pitts, DOI event coordinator, wrote the Pioneer by email. “Alan will be running a presentation for the community the same night at the Columbia Valley Centre starting at 7 p.m. The evening presentation will be open for anyone to attend.”

Mr. Mallory and his family embarked on their self-guided expedition of Everest in the spring of 2018 and successfully completed their activity within two months of departing.

“They encountered immense challenges during the climb but they were able to overcome these obstacles through healthy team dynamics, effective communication and trust in each other’s abilities,” Ms. Pitts added by email. “It was a two-month journey through some of the most terrifying and arduous conditions imaginable but to finally reach their end goal was incredible!”

Mr. Mallory has a Bachelor’s degree in engineering from Queen’s University, as well as a Masters in psychology from Adler University. His work experience as an engineer and project manager both in Canada and abroad have given him a unique perspective to solving problems in a team dynamic. He thrives when given the opportunity to help others reach new heights and maximize their full potential from a personal and professional perspective, according to his website information.

In addition, Mr. Mallory published a book, The Family That Conquered Everest, to inform others about his family’s triumph and mountaineering journey.

“By integrating his innovative leadership experience with captivating mountaineering and adventure stories, Alan creates a powerful and unforgettable journey for his audience,” concluded Ms. Pitts.
