More important than standing at the top of a mountain are the lessons learned along the way, America’s Credit Union Conference (ACUC) opening keynote speaker Alison Levine told attendees in San Antonio on Sunday.
Levine, who has climbed the highest peaks on seven continents and skied to the North and South Poles, drew parallels between mountain climbing and her experience in the business world.
Using slides from her climbs of the world’s tallest mountains, she shared these lessons:

“Turning around and walking away is harder than continuing on when conditions aren’t perfect,” Levine said.
ACUC runs through Wednesday. Check back for daily updates.
