Nando Parrado is an internationally known speaker who has developed successful strategies for unlocking potential and excellence in the workplace and everyday life. He is also the author of the best seller book “Miracle in the Andes”.

In 1972 he was flying to Chile from Uruguay with his college rugby team of which he was captain for an international rugby match. Unfortunately, the flight never arrived at destination; it crashed tragically at 18,000 feet in the Cordillera de los Andes. The two and a half months that followed changed his life completely. His mother and younger sister passed away in the accident, and Nando made a superhuman effort, and survived for 72 days, finding his way out of the Andes, after 11 days of snowy marathon trek.

Soon after the rescue of the survivors, thanks to the epic passage of the Andes of Nando Parrado and his friend Roberto Canessa, he worked with Piers Paul Read to write the world best seller “ALIVE “, and 20 years later was the Technical Advisor in the production of the film “ALIVE”. where his part was played by Ethan Hawke.

Nando Parrado is regarded as one of the world’s leading public speakers. The World Business Forum voted Nando the Best Speaker in the World in 2010. His story is the thrilling history of one of the most important odysseys of survival in man kind, but also it’s an inspired call to businessmen and businesswoman alike, to transform into adventurers, and face the challenges of the new millennium.

The extraordinary history of Nando Parrado has been carved from an absolutely normal life. His achievements are a powerful testimony to his attitude of survival. A life quickly transformed after an incredible physical and mental recovery after losing his mother and sister in the accident and undergoing a fracture of the skull. He recovers, helps, leads, decides and escapes through the mountains.

In his motivational conferences  all the subjects that can help a company or organisation in several areas: Leadership, Team Work, Motivation, Handling of Crisis, Change, Planning & Strategy, Handling of Conflicts, How to Handle Fear.

A lesson in skills of leadership and tactical planning, not only for the human survival but for the survival of companies. It’s saga of courage, team work, determination  experienced at a level that few will be able to credit that touches hearts and leaves audiences with an elevated perception of the value of human life. This is also a great history of loyalty, friendship, family, faith and perseverance.
