Jon Kedrowski Speaker Biography


Jon Kedrowski has a Ph.D. in Environmental Geography, Weather, and Climate. He grew up in Vail, Colorado where he has climbed over 1,000 different Colorado peaks, including hundreds of ski descents, (Skiing each of Colorado's 14,000' peaks and about half of the 637 CO 13ers). He has climbed 6 of the 7 continental summits, including summiting Mt. Everest in 2012 & 2019. His training ground also included the mighty Mount Rainier volcano in WA, which he has climbed over 25 times and skied on numerous occasions.

His expeditions to Mt. Everest in recent years (2012, 2015, 2018, & 2019) have been featured on Discovery Channel, Smithsonian, NBC, Dateline NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, and CNN. On April 25, 2015, Jon was at Everest Base Camp in Nepal when a devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck. All summit attempts were aborted but Jon was able to assist the Nepalese people with rescue efforts.

In addition to Mt. Everest, Jon also completed a ski expedition to Gasherbrum II in Pakistan in 2013, an 8000m peak near K2 in the Karakoram. Then in 2019, Kedrowski summited Mt. Manaslu (26,780'/8163m) in Nepal without the use of supplemental oxygen.

Jon is the author of three books: “Sleeping on the Summits: Colorado Fourteener High Bivys” and “Skiing and Sleeping on the Summits: Cascade Volcanoes”. and "Classic Colorado Ski Descents (2017). He is also an expedition leader, a trekking guide, and sought-after motivational speaker. In Jon’s talks, mountains are metaphors for accomplishing goals in life, both professionally and personally.

You will often find Dr. Jon outdoors hiking, climbing, skiing, or even ice skating…with his camera in hand…experiencing the next big adventure.

Be Everest Ready - Stay prepared for success when opportunities come.
Have you ever had to pass on an opportunity because you were not prepared when it was presented to you? Maybe it's business opportunities, relationship opportunities, or other opportunities you have to achieve your big goals. In this engaging keynote, Dr. Jon distills his daily habits for staying "Everest Ready".

Especially relevant now during the global pandemic when so many events, goals, and dreams have been postponed or canceled, Dr. Jon will:

  • Inspire you with tips and stories of how to get or stay prepared for when these opportunities arise again.
  • Show how to achieve your dreams, no matter how high by doing something every day to work toward them.
  • Explain how to break seemingly insurmountable goals into smaller, SMART goals.

 

Get to the Top in Life and Business!

Dr. Jon will take your audience on an entertaining and awe-inspiring journey through the adversity he has faced on Mt. Everest, continually facing failure from outside forces and the qualities we all need to climb Everest's in our lives. This includes:

  • Focusing on what you can control and not wasting energy on what you can't.
  • Leadership and teamwork.
  • Managing risks in high-pressure environments.

 

What does it take to endure the storms in our lives and business environment?

After decades of climbing and skiing off of high peaks around the world, as well being an entrepreneur, Dr. Jon knows what it takes to endure life's storms. In this motivating talk, he shares his stories and insights on how to:

  • Adjust your plans, attitudes, and actions.
  • Overcome fear.
  • Realize that failure is part of success if you stay strong and don't give up
  • Thrive in spite of unexpected setbacks.

*Jon also offers additional guiding or adventure experience to attendees in conjunction with his talks, where applicable.
