    Nando Parrado is the leader among the Survivors of the plane crash that occurred in the Andes mountains.  In October 1972, Nando and his teammates were travelling to Chile to participate in an international rugby exhibition, but their flight never reached its destination, tragically crashing in the Andes Mountains – at 4,000 meters above sea level. In those two and a half months of frozen ordeal, Nando’s life changed completely. His mother and his younger sister, Susana, died in the accident. Nando made a superhuman effort, survived for 72 days, and managed to escape from the Andes after a long 10-day walk through the mountains with his friend Roberto Canessa.

    Parrado’s achievements are a powerful testimony to his attitude toward survival. His life was quickly transformed in the Andes — He lost his mother, sister and his two best friends in the crash, and suffered a skull fracture. He recovered and escaped through the Andes Mountains with his friend, Roberto. Because of this escape, his story and the stories of those who lost their lives in the crash can be shared.

    His keynotes paint a thrilling history of one of the most important odysseys of survival in our time, but it’s also an inspired call to businessmen and women alike, to transform into adventurers and face the challenges of this decade.

    Nando Parrado – Conference Insight, May 2019

    May 2019, Staples US Store Managers Conference, Dallas, Texas – Keynote Speaker Nando Parrado by Promotivate Speakers Agency.

    Nando Parrado resides in Montevideo, Uruguay. He presents in English and Spanish.

    The Snow Society, directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and nominated for the Oscars as best international film – THIS NETFLIX FILM IS ONE OF THE MOST AMBITIOUS SPANISH-SPEAKING PROJECTS TO BE RELEASED IN 2023, DIRECTED BY J.A BAYONA.

    The movie, which was inspired by Pablo Vierci’s non-fiction book “La Sociedad de la Nieve” has been considered one of the most ambitious Spanish-language projects to be released this year. It also marks the first time in sixteen years that Bayona has directed a Spanish-speaking movie.

    Nando Parrado’s keynotes focus on many subjects that help a company or organization succeed: leadership, teamwork, motivation, handling of crisis, change, planning and strategy, handling of conflict, and how to handle one’s own fears. It is a lesson in leadership and tactical planning, not only for human survival but also for the survival of companies. It is a story of loyalty, friendship, family, faith and perseverance experienced at the human level that few will be able to relate, but will touch the audience’s heart and leave it with an elevated perception of the value of human life.

    • "Nando Parrado en su presentación logra demostrar porque la palabra "Imposible" debe ser reemplazada en toda situación por "Improbable". A su vez, demuestra como la palabra "Improbable" puede transformarse en "Posible". Todos en nuestra Compañia coincidimos que nunca vimos una presentación en nuestras vidas que tuviese tan alto impacto en lo profesional y personal, llegando a lugares de nosotros mismos que nos hiciese repensar situaciones, decisiones y comportamientos esenciales. Nadie fue el mismo después de esta presentación. Hay un grupo de 16 personas que tienen una tremenda, sabia e incomparable experiencia que contarle al resto de la Humanidad y lo tienen a Nando Parrado como vocero."
