You're eighteen, you're falling and you know you're going to die....

You're an hour from the top of Everest, your oxygen is about to run out and your high-paying client won't turn back....

Tapping a life-time of adventures as a mountaineer and mountain-guiding entepreneur, Steve Bell uses the power of metaphor to leave a memorable message.

Whether it's a business conference or a school event, Steve's stories highlight themes such as resilience and passion, risk and responsibility, and leadership and ethics.

Nothing drives home a message better than a great story, so look no further than former Mount Everest guide, Steve Bell, to enrich your next event.


More Info

If your message needs a big hook, there are none bigger than Mount Everest. I've climbed it, guided it, promoted it, sold it, cheated it, defended it, and several times I've nearly died on it. All those experiences have given me memorable stories that I can slant towards the theme of your event.

My presentations range from 20 to 60 minutes. Fees reflect the prestige of the event and the preparation required, ranging from $900 for a school in Adelaide to $2500 - $5000 for a conference keynote. If you're working to a tighter budget it's still worth getting in touch as I may have a suitable presentation already on the shelf.

When you request a quote, I will ask for more details about your event and your required outcome. I will then send you a quote without delay.
