Sharon Wood – Motivational Speaker

1 Programs By This Presenter

Sharon Wood teaches, entertains and inspires with her personal story about reaching the top of Mount Everest. Stunning still images and video illustrate the journey of a small team who shared a bold vision to climb the highest mountain in the world by a more difficult route and with fewer physical and financial resources.

Her story powerfully demonstrates how exemplary teamwork and leadership can render the impossible possible. Sharon effectively conveys both the individual and the team perspective by stressing the importance of honoring her own passion and dreams while fulfilling a role as a member of a team – a team committed to a shared vision.

Sharon’s style is personal and moving. She uses powerful anecdotes and vivid analogies to convey the elements that parallel the challenges of striving individuals and organizations. Sharon’s authentic, humorous and honest approach evokes listeners to consider the value of their own resources and opportunities.

“To the Summit and Beyond” is more than an adventure story – it is a timeless, universal story about the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. For anyone wanting to be more effective in his or her work or life, Sharon’s story is a powerful inspiration.

Each presentation is tailored to the focus and timelines of the audience.


“Sharon Wood’s journey of reaching the summit of Mt. Everest (via a route no one had ever taken) was a truly inspiring story. The themes around teamwork, personal accountability and perseverance truly parallel not only Bank of America as a whole, but also my team’s immediate environment of achieving greater levels of success in the face of what appears to be unattainable.”

— Bank of America

“I have helped organize these events for seven years and Sharon Wood had the greatest positive response we’ve ever had.”

— RE/MAX Realty

“You won over a normally skeptical crowd of North American and European bond market players with your compelling and thought provoking tale of achievement through teamwork and sheer determination.”

— RBC Capital Markets Inc.

“Your willingness to truly customize your talk to meet our unique requirements was a first. It had a tremendous impact on our group.”

— Misys Heathcare System

“Sharon was great. It is always hard to captivate an audience especially at the end of a long day, but she did it. She is such a wonderful story teller. It felt as though she was sharing the experience with a good friend and reflecting on it as she told it. I would have never guessed she had delivered this experience many times before because it felt structured, but just enough not so that you felt very in the moment (if that makes sense). I was fortunate enough to share a table with her at dinner. She is a very genuine person who’s presentation style very much aligns with who she is, which makes her delivery that much more interesting and fascinating (not to mention what she accomplished). Thanks again for all your help in making this happen and the exceptional level of service you and your company delivers. It is great doing business with a company of your caliber.”


“Once again a fabulous speaker. She did a marvelous job this morning.”
