Gary Guller

Motivational Keynote Speaker & Mt. Everest Summiter

Gary Guller is known both as a world-renowned, record-setting mountaineer and a professional motivational and inspirational speaker, trusted by the world’s top organizations and corporations. Gary was leader of the largest ever cross-disability group to reach Mt Everest Base Camp, at 17,500 feet.  After setting this record, he went on to reaching the summit and becoming the first person with one arm to summit Mt. Everest. Later the next year, Gary led an expedition to the summit of Mt. Cho Oyu in Tibet.

Just as he discovered his passion for alpine climbing, Gary lost the use of his arm in a mountaineering accident.  He stunned a medical team at Duke University by asking to have his paralyzed arm amputated, and, after serious introspection, he began climbing again, surmounting the barriers that stood in the way of his dreams.  Gary has gone on to become a trusted keynote speaker to the world’s most respected companies.

Gary uses his extraordinary experiences to share with his audiences the importance of equality, determination, team-work and integrity, and how these traits lead to personal and professional success. Gary shows how acceptance of diversity and diversity of thought will serve a globally integrated world economy in a positive way.  Gary encourages his audiences to look deep into themselves, motivating them to set goals to maximize their potential, placing fear and doubts aside to achieve success.

The ARC

Loved your story and what a great inspiration! Was going over the evaluations this weekend and didn’t have a chance to email you with the results. Some of the comments “Amazing!”, “Great Keynote Speaker”, “Great Message”, “Excellent”, “Very inspiring”, “Motivational”, “WOW!!!!” and “Awesome Story” “You could literally hear a pin drop as Gary spoke – I have NEVER met a speaker that held a complete ballroom full of different individuals spellbound and silent as they hung to your words.”

IT Europe

“Just to let you know that when I got back into the office I had a whole host of mails from attendees at the event saying how inspiring & thought provoking your piece was, I would also add that people who had seen other ‘key note speakers’ commented on how different your piece was at you focused on what a team can achieve together, not what the leader had achieved. This I think is really powerful. It was a pleasure to host you, you are a true professional, & a very easy person to host.”

Corporate Strategy Fortune 100

“The best of plans yield to the situation on the ground and our ability to react, contribute and add long term value! We all have an idea of how our businesses operate, but enough has changed so that we have to change how we approach running our businesses. Analogy — while many climbed Everest and it was known how — climbing with one arm altered it enough that you had to modify your approach so you could succeed. Think about you and the people you are trained to touch: leaders, change agents, risk takers and the business elite.”

IBM

Gary’s visit was a powerful reminder that no obstacle should remain unchallenged and that no person should be dismissed without the opportunity to prove what their passion and determination can accomplish.
