REQUEST A SPEAKER

Araceli Segarra, the first Spanish woman to climb Mt Everest in 1996 while filming an IMAX documentary and after assisting on the rescue of the worse tragedy of the history of Everest, where a total of 13 people died, is an inspiring example of determination and success. Over the years, she has been able to combine climbing with her work as a model, TV host and writer.

In her lectures, Araceli Segarra uses her experience climbing Everest and the history of the highest mountain in the world as a metaphor for appraising how human nature is expressed at the limit in extreme conditions and how to extrapolate this to the company and to life in general.

Amongst other subjects, her talks deal with motivation, constantly taking decisions based on the alternatives available during a climb, attitude to get the best results, breaking away from preconceived ideas or paradigms that constrain us, achieving objectives, success and innovation to get better results.

As a model, she has taken part in reports and advertising campaigns for television and magazines like Vogue, Elle, Telva and El País Semanal, in Spain, and Glamour in the United States, or Figaro, in France.

Filming a documentary in IMAX about Everest in 1996, invited by an American expedition, allowed her to become the first Spanish woman to climb the highest peak in the world. In 2007, she took part in another expedition to Everest, filmed with 3D cameras. She also starred in a television program in Scotland for the BBC, “The Great Climb”.

She was camera person and photographer in “Expedition Alaska”, a Discovery Channel documentary on climate change, and assistant camera person on the filming of “Seven Years in Tibet”, starring Brad Pitt.

Climbing since she was 15, she is the author and illustrator of three children’s fairy tales, part of a series entitled “7 cumbres”: Tina en la Antártida: el continente blanco, Tina en el Everest: el techo del mundo and Tina en el Aconcagua: el centinela de piedra.
