This is for all leaders dreaming big, to keep dreaming big, and to go for your dreams!
Siv Harstad is a motivational speaker, expedition leader, and mindset coach whose philosophy is to inspire and motivate people to Dream Big in their life. After surviving Nepal’s 2015 major earthquake, resilience and determination led her back to Everest, making her the first Norwegian woman to climb Mount Everest from the Nepali side.
Growing up on the west coast of Norway with a family of entrepreneurs, her role models taught her to be strong and independent which led her to live and work all over the world; USA, Nordics, Greece, Netherlands, and Brazil. In 2008 she received the IBSs Leadership Award and was the first Scandinavian participant in IBM’s Corporate Services Corps.
After working intensively in corporate culture, she suffered severe burnout, making her sick for years. Both her illness and earthquake experience made her reevaluate what’s important in life.
Siv gave up her successful career in management consulting and HR to pursue her dreams. She has climbed 7 summits (the highest peak on each continent), and 5 out of the 7 volcanoes, and is on a mission to the North and South Poles. The goal is to be the first person in the world who has climbed 7 summits, 7 volcanoes and reached both poles. Because she would love a woman who is the first person in extreme adventures.
Siv is proof that by having the courage to follow your heart, you can get what you want. Her mission is to help others Dare to Dream Big in their lives through her talks, mindset coaching, and expeditions.
