 Kevin Cherilla – Base Camp Manager, NFB 2001 Everest Expedition

Kevin Cherilla – Base Camp Manager, NFB 2001 Everest Expedition

The greatest team the ever climbed on Mt. Everest.” – Time Magazine

Kevin Cherilla brings you his inspiring story of setting goals and making them happen as he relates his experiences as Erik Weihenmayers’ climbing partner and friend.  A former master teacher and champion coach for inner-city students, Kevin served as base camp manager for the NFB 2001 Everest Expedition during which Erik became the first blind person to summit Mt. Everest.  Since 1993, Kevin has traveled the world with Erik; rock and ice climbing, running marathons, biking and mountaineering.  As a team they have learned how to communicate and create systems to be more efficient and effective both on the mountain and in everyday situations. Together, they have exceeded the limitations society imposes on us and have shattered the perceptions of what can be accomplished. Kevin shares his adventures, the challenges and hardships that had to be overcome in the face of fear and danger, and the lessons learned while accompanying Erik.  His story highlights the power of positive thinking and the importance of motivating the team to focus on the tasks ahead. Kevin describes the need for teamwork and coordinating the talents of people from diverse backgrounds in his successful role as base camp manager. Audiences are captivated by Kevin’s tales of daring mountain rescues and critical decision-making on summit day. Kevin’s multimedia presentation gives his audience the ambition to achieve more, reach into the unknown, set goals for success and overcome the challenges and obstacles we face every day.  His energetic, love-of-life personality will give you the motivation and desire to “Reach Beyond Convention” and “Summit Your Own Everest One Step At A Time.”
