AB 176: You Panic – You Die. Business Lessons From Mount Everest
Dickinson soloed the summit of Mount Everest on May 15, 2011, after his Sherpa mountain guide became ill and went back down to high camp. After taking some pictures and making a radio call, Brian began his descent but within a few feet he became snow blind.
His vision did not fully return for over a month. His descent to high camp from the summit took over seven hours, instead of the expected two to three hours. Brian ran out of oxygen on his descent but made it down to the South Col where his guide met him to help him back to his tent. Brian holds the record for the highest solo blind descent.
He has climbed the Seven Summits by climbing the highest peaks of all seven continents. He also participates in many other extreme sports.
Brian’s Blind Descent experience has been reenacted in television segments including the Christian Broadcast Network’s 700 Club, the Weather Channel’s Freaks of Nature, KING-TV and Brian was featured on CNN’s Anderson Cooper, ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN’s New Day with Chris Cuomo, Huffington Post, Fox Business Varney & Co, Success Magazine, Redemption Movie Series, Weather Channel, American Survival Guide Magazine, Simple Grace Magazine, Charisma Magazine, Guideposts and more. Brian’s Mount Everest experience also landed him as the top trending moment for Twitter.
