When Extraordinary Happens: EO Boston Members Respond to a Day with Legendary Rock Climber, Alex Honnold
The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) is committed to helping entrepreneurs learn and grow to new levels of leadership by providing learning opportunities, mentorship and access to experts.
Mike Tucci, Kris Porcaro and Jordi Mullor of EO Boston-member company and chapter partner, Lexington Wealth Management, recently organized an event where EO members spent the day with Alex Honnold, the renowned rock climber who became the first person to summit Yosemite National Park’s El Capitan “free solo”—using only his hands and body without help from ropes, harnesses or other safety gear.
Alex’s epic athletic achievement is documented in the film Free Solo, which portrays his journey through training, fear, indecision and finally successfully scaling El Capitan.
The Academy Award-winning documentary, Free Solo, is a sensation, imbuing the man who scaled the 3,000-foot sheer granite mountain without using ropes, harnesses or other safety gear with rockstar status. With his popularity at an all-time peak after his inspirational story won the Oscar for Best Documentary, Alex Honnold is one of the world’s most sought-after keynote speakers.
