Alison Levine
American mountain climber

CREW Network Featured Speaker


Alison Levine served as team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition, climbed the Seven Summits and skied to the North and South Poles. A history-making adventurer who also spent time in the business world, she has survived sub-zero temperatures, hurricane-force winds and sudden avalanches—and that was while climbing the corporate ladder! 

In her New York Times best-selling book, “On the Edge: Leadership Lessons from Everest and Other Extreme Environments,” Levine asserts that the principles that apply to the world of extreme adventure also apply to demanding business environments. A former part-time faculty member at West Point, she understands what it takes to lead teams through challenging situations.

Levine will speak during the Opening General Session at the 2018 CREW Network Convention and Marketplace.
