Defiance & Destiny on Everest

Partake in remarkable tales of adventure, defiance and destiny. Enjoy bespoke beverages at Bar Max's hidden underground.

Eric West was broke, lost and at the last truck stop in Thailand. Then his life changed forever.

By 2012 he'd climbed Mt Everest and captained an international yacht. Eric didn't think ordinary people could do extraordinary things until he realized that he'd transformed his life and found his calling by simply "Showing Up."

Join us for astonishing stories from sea to summit in Bar Max's hidden underground. Eric will share trials and triumphs as he takes us through backwaters blunders, near misses, dances with destiny, prophetic dreams, dangerous feats and the ultimate obstacle: the inner critic.

This is an interactive talk and Q + A that might just leave you plotting your own Everest-sized adventure!
