Russell Brice, CEO of Himalayan Experiences, has been leading expeditions to the Himalayas since 1974. He now has a regular team of sherpas who are, without doubt, the most respected in Nepal. He has led clients to the summit of Everest and Cho Oyo, and also Himal Chuli (7,540m), Shishapangma (8,046m) and Ama Dablam (6,856m).

In 1991 his ability to manage a team and overcome extreme technical difficulty at high altitude triumphed as Project Coordinator for the successful Star Balloon Over Everest Expedition.

Individually, he has the world record for the fastest single solo ascent without oxygen of both Cho Oyo and of Ama Dablam. In 1988 he was the first climber to cross the infamous Pinnacles of the NE ridge of Everest. He is now widely reputed as one of the most professional leaders of all guided expeditions to the Himalayas and has earned worldwide recognition through Discovery Channel's Everest: Beyond the Limit, now in its second season.

Great webinar from a great PM.


KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)...great reminder that it's the basic and even mundane things that cannot be overlooked, like a radio. Interesting to learn that basic and simple tools we take for granted such as pencil, paper and instruments in your head are tools for tracking all the critical tasks ensuring people's lives. Risk management at a life and death level is intense and a project managers role of leading from the front is integral.


This was a wonderful webinar. So many of these webinars are theoretical, this was a great example of Project Management in a real world scenario. I wish I could see more webinars like this one.

very good one.


It's really not easy to live and work in a place like that. For this, we can say it is a project management at the highest point of earch.


We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.
