MEET DAVID SNOW Motivational Speaker & Adventurer

David Snow
Mountaineer ·  Speaker · Entrepreneur · Author

Going beyond a motivational and leadership speaker, meet David, a dynamic speaker and Everest leader who has mesmerized audiences of large corporations and small groups alike. Drawing from his experience in extreme environments, teamwork, and leadership, David’s dramatic presentations featuring captivating videos and expedition photos leave a lasting impact.

Growing up in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, David was surrounded by mountains. But it wasn’t until his late 20’s when a challenge came from a coworker to climb Rainier that he began exploring the possibilities of mountaineering. His drive and passion for life transferred to mountain climbing, and quickly he was on the fast track to reaching the Seven Summits. Through many successes and a few failures he was able to reach this seemingly unattainable goal in just 8 short years.

David has taken his passion for adventure and channeled it into developing several successful adventure travel businesses. He has a masters degree in Business Administration and has been successful in corporate sales for over 2 decades. His extensive experience in both business and mountaineering bring a unique perspective that is rare among professional speakers. David has inspired audiences and corporations worldwide with his message of persistence and climbing beyond our self-imposed limiting beliefs. 


Summit Speaker

David is a globally renowned adventurer and entrepreneur, uniquely equipped with the expertise to both organize and lead teams on across all Seven Summits, including two awe-inspiring journeys to Mt. Everest. His ability to direct his teams sets him apart in the realm of summit speakers.

Leading the Seven Summits

David, an expert in reaching the summit of every continent, orchestrates meticulously planned expeditions where he accounts for every detail and contingency. Despite his thorough preparations, unforeseen challenges arise on every continent, testing adaptability and resourcefulness.


"Peak Persistence" explores the concept of resilience and its role in achieving long-term success. David emphasizes the importance of maintaining motivation, perseverance, and adaptability in the face of challenges, providing practical strategies for cultivating persistence in various areas of life.


Turning his passion and business degrees into leading others to realize their dreams, David created multi-million dollar adventure travel companies in Central and South America, Africa and the Himalaya. He enjoys relaxing at this safari lodge in the heart of the Serengeti along

We had the jaw dropping pleasure of hearing David speak to our company. Not every day you get to hear from someone who has sat on the summit of Everest — and plenty of other highest mountains in the world. David taught us it's all about the people you meet, the relationships you make and who's with you at the top. One of the most compelling presentations we’ve heard.


From his first words to last, David energized our team by breaking through limits and adapting to whatever the environment throws as you. It's all about that moving past those limiting steps!


Dave blew everyone away. It was amazing. I've hired and sat through a lot of speakers and this was top notch. I almost got emotional at one point and I DON'T get emotional!

Thank you very much for yesterday's great keynote. Last night we took the group on a Bay cruise and I got a chance to ask at least 20 people about their thoughts on your presentation. Not one person was less than emotionally moved and inspired by you. The number one thing I kept hearing from them was how much they were impressed by your authenticity and storytelling. You definitely stirred some hearts and minds. Thank you again for being our first keynote speaker at our inaugural Summit and I look forward to the next opportunity to have you back. Feel free to list us as a very happy client. You can also use me as a point of contact if you need a reference for future gigs. Well done and take care

Westport Properties

As a former Geography teacher of 8 years, guidance counselor of 25 years, and lover of nature, hiking and the like, I was “all in” from the first picture of Everest on his slides. I ordered PEAK PERSISTENCE immediately following your presentation! I finished it in less than 3 days! As a guidance counselor at the high school, there were so many experiences noted in the book to relate to on a personal and professional level. Not only that, but I found many that I can share with my struggling students unwilling to take that next step with whatever their battles. I just wanted to send a quick note today to say thank you for sharing your experiences, failures and successes in your book (and for coming Texas). Thanks again for helping me set “new summits” each day.

Jackson Co. School District

We cannot thank you enough for your incredible presentation to our Texas leaders. I’m confident the team walked away with excellent takeaways for the year. I was personally also so moved by your talk and have a full page of notes. It was very impactful to have you there in person, and you made everything so easy. Our Director was thrilled with how everything turned out and also asked about your book for all our leaders. I also can’t wait to read it. Thank you again for everything!

Comcast Xfinity

Thank you for speaking to our group this year for our Year End Conference. You did a remarkable job! There has been overwhelming positive feedback, sentiment, and human connection to your story and your delivery is fantastic. If you ever need a reference, I am happy to provide one to you.


Thank you for your presentation across our division leaders. It resonated with each person I've spoken with. Thank you for an excellent presentation!

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

Our Exec Team was in awe the entire journey, completely captivated, not something easy to do with this group! Thank you for sharing your experiences and notes from the mountains we can take to the 'low lands'
