Run time: 14 Minutes
Erik Weihenmayer has never believed in limitations - even though he is blind. And he's good at questioning other people's perceptions of his abilities. That's why it was easy to ignore the ones who said he was crazy to pursue his dream of climbing Mount Everest. Erik knew that he couldn't do it alone. And here's the key - he never wanted to.

Praise for Everest:
"Stunningly filmed. Everest quietly tells a remarkable true story that gives new meaning to the word "vision". It should inspire teams and might even slip through the armor of hardcore cynics."

"I have used Everest in three MBA team building workshops. The students loved it, and the lessons from the film are having a positive impact on the working of their teams. A great video."

"I thought Everest had a powerful message. It is difficult for people to compare what they do to helping a blind person climb Mount Everest, although the video does bring out the points of Team Leadership well."
