A real life superhero, Steph Davis climbs up mountains and flies off them.
From an unusual start as a classically trained pianist with a Master’s degree in literature, Steph chose to leave law school in order to pursue climbing full time. Named one of “the 25 Most Adventurous Women of the Past 25 Years” by Men’s Journal, today she is known as a top wingsuit BASE jumper, and the most accomplished female free solo climber in the world. Steph has written two memoirs, High Infatuation and Learning to Fly.
The Edge is a clear decision point, and it’s a place we all find ourselves. You have many choices at the Edge: back off, leave, wait, step forward. How do you know when to step forward or when to step back? How can you turn fear and uncertainty into assets? You can choose how you face your own Edge, and reach your highest potential.
Risk & Resilience – The world is changing faster today than ever before. We are faced with a constant stream of information and decision points as we navigate relationships and business. The most valuable tool we have in managing risk is our own resilience. In 25 years of literally living on the edge, as both an extreme sports athlete and an
entrepreneur, Steph Davis has developed a method to walk that edge with grace and confidence. How do you turn failure into opportunity? How do you turn fear into success? By learning to cultivate resilience and choosing to step forward into the unknown, we can all meet our own Edge with confidence and excitement. A dynamic and engaging storyteller, Steph uses jaw-dropping imagery and video to share these lessons through the incredible metaphors of free solo climbing and wingsuit flight in some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes of the world.
Format: Steph’s keynote presentation is 50 minutes, with option for Q&A, with breathtaking videos and images.
