Conrad Anker

Alpinist / Climber


A legend in the climbing world, Conrad has crafted a legacy defined by taking on the most challenging climbs in the world, blending different technical styles, including a first ascent of "The Shark's Fin" as documented in the award winning film Meru. Countless successful expeditions across Alaska, Patagonia, Antarctica and Everest, while also serving as captain of The North Face Athlete Team for over 20 years, have helped cement his status as a thought leader respected across the outdoor community.

Conrad has lent his story and experience to a variety of audiences throughout his career, addressing global tech leaders, financial institutions, college commencements, and brand consultancies. His talks recap his career achievements and how he's navigated the most challenging and dangerous expeditions ever attempted, while leaning into the lessons he's learned on themes such as teamwork, risk management and pushing past limits.

What they say about Conrad Anker:


We want to use this opportunity to thank you for your time, wisdom, and amazing energy on our call yesterday. We speak on behalf of our team when we say that this was an exceptional and insightful call. Your contributions, deep thinking, and fascinating stories (from Everest to Meru to your testimonial for Sharpies to life happenings) set the stage and tone for an incredible conversation.

I want to personally thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us.


I am writing to express my appreciation for the opportunity to work with Conrad Anker in preparation for his commencement address to the Class of 2017 at the University of Utah. I was impressed with his collaborative attitude, his desire to get to know his audience on a more personal level, and his level of preparation. This world-famous mountaineer is surprisingly down to earth. His genuine nature, and wisdom, are as compelling as the stories that living a life on the edge of cliffs engenders. In my role, I write and produce much of commencement every year. It has been my pleasure to hear many wonderful speakers, and watch the reactions of the audience through the camera lens. Not all have engaged the audience in the same way that Conrad Anker does. He skillfully uses both words and visual aids to convey his message and passion.

Inspire your audience with an unforgettable event.
