Nando Parrado began to speak about his experiences in the Andes in 1992, when he was invited to address the Young President’s Organization. After speaking to several multi-national companies, he transformed himself into one of the most unique speakers in the world.

Parrado, a sportsmen, seminar leader, and president of several companies, uses his experience surviving in the Andes – the most hostile environment on the planet, to articulate innovative strategies for those that need to scale personal or business mountains in the twenty-first century.

Parrado’s achievements are a powerful testimony to his attitude of survival. His life was quickly transformed in the Andes – he lost his mother and sister in the crash, and suffered a skull fracture. He recovered, and escaped through the Andes Mountains with his friend, Roberto. Because of this escape, his story and the stories of those that lost their lives in the crash can be shared.
