About Vendor

One of the standout qualities of Gary Guller’s speaking engagements is the positive impact they have on those who listen. His words inspire people to overcome their personal challenges, pursue their dreams, and push past their perceived limitations. Guller’s mission is to make a difference, and he does so by motivating individuals to achieve their full potential. Gary Guller, an accomplished mountaineer, adventurer and motivational speaker, has made a significant presence in the media through his inspiring journey and achievements. Magazines and newspapers have profiled Guller’s story, delving into his background, his accident, and his extraordinary team ascent of Mount Everest. These articles have illuminated his path to success, shedding light on the incredible determination and teamwork that allowed him to overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds. Guller gained widespread recognition for his remarkable ascent of Mount Everest in 2003. What sets his achievement apart is that he did so as the first person with one arm to reach the summit. This extraordinary feat garnered substantial media coverage, with news outlets, such as TIME, Sports Illustrated, Outside, the NYT, plus documentaries, and news shows eager to share his compelling narrative. Gary Guller is not just an ordinary motivational speaker; he is a force of inspiration and resilience. His remarkable journey from a life-changing accident to becoming the first person with one arm to reach the summit of Mount Everest has made him an influential and sought-after speaker. If you’re looking for a speaker who can captivate, motivate, and empower your audience, here’s why you should hire Gary Guller. Additional: Gary Guller’s story is one of personal triumph over extreme adversity. In 1986, Guller a catastrophic climbing fall on Pico de Orizaba in Mexico, a mountaineering accident that claimed the life of his dear friend and eventually led to the loss of his left arm. Instead of giving in to despair, Guller chose to embrace the challenge and redefine what was possible. His journey to conquer Everest is a testament to the power of the human spirit, resilience, and determination. Guller’s story serves as a living example of how individuals can overcome the most daunting obstacles, making his talks a source of hope and motivation. A story that appeals due to its larger mythic features. The life's journey. Realizing one's purpose. Making many false turns and starts on the way to reaching beyond oneself. Trying on lots of early, incorrect notions of what one wants to be, and actually finding a `true' identity through trial, suffering, loss, stupid mistakes (that we all make, in large or small forms) and hard, hard recovery - driven by grace, w/ some small modicum of luck thrown in. Together: Anything is Possible - An inspirational keynote experience (in person or virtual) delivered only by Gary Guller, specializing in opening & closing keynotes. An expedition leader of epic proportion, Gary climbed to the very summit of Mt. Everest and became the first person with one arm to stand on top of the world! Six weeks prior, he was the expedition leader of the largest ever cross-disability, most diverse team ever to reach Everest Base Camp, at 17,500 feet. Later the next year, Gary led an expedition to the summit of the world's sixth highest mountain, Mt. Cho Oyu, in Tibet. Since Everest and Cho Oyu, Gary completed the insanely difficult Marathon de Sables, believed to be the toughest footrace in the world. Gary's down-to-earth, sincere speaking style, makes him an extremely popular speaker around the world, from Asia, India, the Mid East, to Europe and North & South America, 30+ countries since his very first keynote with IBM, 15 years ago. ( +1-512-632-0442 or "Gary has several differentiated attributes. He has a very compelling story. It focuses on the team and what is possible. This is a competitive differentiator for our business. Gary brings his A game every time. He spends the necessary time understanding the organization and makes sure his messages are in the context of what the audience needs to hear. Gary puts in the time. He comes in early and is available to the participants afterwards. He does not land, do a stock speech and leave immediately. Having worked with many outside professionals, I can tell you definitively that this is what sets Gary apart." SVP Corporate Strategy Fortune 100

BanquetReviewed on February 23, 2018From Eastland, TX

Mr. Guller was fabulous to work with. He came in town a day early in order to wake up early and present to our local jr. high and high school. The students loved the presentation. I heard many talking about where they wanted to travel when they grew up. This is a big deal living in a small town! Most of the places he traveled no one heard of them and I bet many googled those locations. The banquet presentation was phenomenon! He stuck around for quite some time afterwards to join the Chamber Mixer. He shook hands with everyone and was a delight to have in Eastland. Our overall experience was amazing! We were extremely lucky to have him for our guest speaker.
