EPIC KEYNOTES

What’s Your Everest? Goal Setting and Overcoming Obstacles

Striving to reach the next level? What is it that holds you or your team back? What’s your Mt. Everest and what stands in the way of you achieving it? What is the motivation you need to high perform? These are the questions that many of us struggle with at work and in our personal lives. Asad will bring you and your team on his harrowing journey from being told he might never walk normally again to breaking two world records no one believed he could. He will inspire, amaze, and energize your audience, empowering them to discover and define what their personal Everest is and share the tools they will need to conquer it.

Be Possible: Change Your Mindset and Achieve Anything

There is a quote Asad continually shares, “He who says he can, and he who says he can’t are both usually right.” In order to build high functioning team, high performing leaders and increase the performance of your workforce, it always starts with mindset. Asad has been on adventures that have taken him around the world to some of the most remote and harsh environments on the planet. But at every step, Asad was confronted with hardships, both internal and external, and it was in the face of that adversity, he found that the impossible was possible. This keynote isn’t about the achievements of Asad , but instead it shows how ordinary people have the capacity to do extraordinary things. Find out what it takes to be a leader, to overcome self-doubt and closed-mindedness to reach peak performance, and how anything is possible if you set your mind to it.

Stronger Together: Harnessing Leadership and Collaboration

Asad O’Brady’s whole life has lead him to world record success. And at no point along the way was he truly by himself on his journey – whether he was walking across the unpredictable frozen tundra of Antarctica or taking his first step to walk after a tragic accident, he always had a team supporting his efforts. Asad knows that in order to succeed, it takes a high performing team that understands how to work together and seamlessly conquer the challenges that are sure to arise along the way. In this talk, you will learn how to build effective teams and strengthen the ones that already exist. Asad dives deeper into business principles by illuminating the benefits of teamwork, team building, leadership, and risk management to ultimately achieve success at the top of the world on the summit of Mt. Everest and the bottom of the world in Antarctica.
