Paul Devaney got incredibly lucky to survive the two most deadly seasons in the history of Mount Everest, witnessing the horror of two avalanches. He talks about the incredible yet human reaction to fear of the known and the unknown.

After working for 12 years for the Rolls-Royce Aerospace Group, Paul Devaney felt the call for adventure and started the Seven Summit challenge – to climb the highest peaks of all continents. In 2014 and 2015 the incredible happened: He got incredibly lucky to survive the two most deadly seasons in the history of Mount Everest, witnessing the horror of two deadly avalanches. Paul wants to talk about the incredible, yet human, reaction to fear of the known and the unknown, and how people worked through and beyond it to achieve amazing acts of defiance and kindness.
