Elia’s speaking engagements and keynote presentations are a journey like no other. He brings not only his intense passion for climbing and adventure to the stage, but offers up his personal quest in high definition—bringing the audience to the most beautiful and treacherous places in the world. Each presentation is adapted to suit the audience and is rich with extraordinary humanity, inspiring messages, practical wisdom and jaw-dropping personal accounts. Elia is represented by Speakers’ Spotlight.
With more than 16 high-altitude expeditions under his belt, including two summits to Mt. Everest, Elia has proven time and time again that he has the determination, stamina, resourcefulness and vision to meet the greatest of challenges. Being empowered by uncertainty, exploring the unknown and adapting to that which you cannot control are concepts that he communicates through real-life experiences on some of the world’s tallest mountains. Where most struggle to place one foot in front of the other, Elia climbs, shoots, broadcasts and communicates in real time to thousands during his expeditions.
Through powerful imagery and video captured on his adventures, Elia takes us around the world to some of the most remote destinations, from the tallest peaks on Earth to the hidden secrets of the Amazon jungle, bringing to life lessons of failure, success and the strategies required to reach incredible heights. World-class expeditions require proper planning, training, teamwork, calculated risks, resilience and the ability to remain optimistic while all odds are stacked against you. Elia illustrates these lessons in a dramatic, colourful and emotionally engaging fashion, leaving the audience inspired, empowered and moved to action.
