Hosted by Charlie Engle

12:25 PM - 12:50 PM

Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel

Stage 3

Charlie Engle is a survivor, an adventurer and a masterful storyteller.

He’s run, cycled and climbed his way across deserts, jungles and mountain ranges around the world. Working with Matt Damon, he produced the film Running the Sahara, which documented his incredible 5,000 mile journey across the entire Sahara Desert, where he ran 2 marathons per day for 111 consecutive days.

During his talk, Charlie will take you on a tumultuous ride through addiction, prison and extreme adventure with the goal of helping you to think differently about the stories you tell, including:

  • How to seek adversity instead of avoiding it
  • How to focus your intention on people who love and support you instead of focusing on those that don’t
  • How to take action on your true passion to tell your greatest story
