About
Andrew Buerger is the author of the book "Carry a Flag From Pain to Passion" and a successful social entrepreneu.

When Andrew Buerger's sister was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, her courage and strength spurred Andy to turn pain into a passion. Andy founded Jodi's Climb for Hope, which raises money for research by leading mountain-climbing expeditions—an apt metaphor for the struggles endured by women affected by breast cancer.

Tragedy struck again when Andy's wife was diagnosed with MS. Jodi's Climb for Hope expanded the scope of its mission into multiple sclerosis research as well. To date, they've raised over $850,000. On an expedition in Iceland, Andy discovered something that he developed into B'More Organic, protein drink ranked as the fifth fastest-growing natural brand by Inc. Magazine.

With engaging mountaineering, business, and personal stories, Carrying a Flag From Pain to Passion portrays the guiding principles that have helped him navigate the peaks and valleys of his life. These stories, which are apt for growing business leaders, teams, and personal development, have audiences laughing and crying.

Andrew is currently the Director of Rare Earth Adventures, an expedition outfitter providing guide services for outdoor adventures.

“I've been teaching leadership for 35 years. I know the single most important trait people use to describe leaders forward-looking. Andy's a normal guy, dealing with the struggles of a family business and the tragedy of his sister, who casts a vision for combining adventure with curing cancer and MS. His willingness to exposes himself to new and uncomfortable situations motivates others to embrace the vision.” — Chris Warner Mountaineer, leadership educator, and entrepreneur

“Andy is an inspiring and transformational leader. All the volunteers that work with Jodi's Climb for Hope are driven by the vision that Andy casts.”
— Ricky Haro
Founder Rare Earth Adventures and former U.S. Air Force SERE Specialist

REVIEWS:

"Andrew Buerger is one of the most engaging speakers I have ever seen. From the moment he walks on stage, he connects powerfully with his audience. Not only do you learn about mountain climbing from someone who has climbed some of the highest peaks in the world, but his message of turning pain into passion through anecdotes about mountain climbing, his career as an entrepreneur and his charity work will resonate with you and your audience. He is funny, fascinating and unforgettable. He made me and our organization look good, with people coming up right after he spoke to tell me how valuable his words were to them. You can't go wrong with Andy."

"I had the opportunity to hear Andrew Buerger speak at a Business Network monthly meeting this year. His story was compelling and he had the audience's attention throughout. I could picture the details of his story and it has stayed with me! I highly recommend Andrew as a keynote speaker for your event. You will not be disappointed! The audience will be inspired and captivated by his delivery and his message."
