One of the highlights of the 7x24 Exchange conference is the opening keynote. This year it was Alison Levine, the leader of the 1st all women's expedition to climb Everest.
Alison covered many topics and if you want an overview of the concepts you can read her book "On the Edge." If you want a shorter version here is a Forbes article.
The #1 thing I enjoyed from Alison's talk is her emphasis on networking. My notes from her talk.
Instead of writing a long post on all the things I liked I am going to through up short words. Blog posts. :-)
