“Everest: Insights from a higher ground”

Sharon Wood teaches, entertains and inspires with her personal story about reaching the top of Mount Everest.

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.
