Reaching Great Heights Together

There are moments when driving to innovation or achieving excellence can feel like an insurmountable climb. In the face of challenge and constant change, there is opportunity. While each of us may not battle high force winds and dangerous crevasses, the environment in which we operate, work, and live each day is shifting and evolving at a rapid pace. Join Kate Shields, Chief Customer Officer and Stacy Allison, the first American woman to summit Mt. Everest as they break down these challenges in a bold and authentic conversation. Stacy will share her journey to the pinnacle of the world and how building strong connections and communities helped her achieve this feat. Then, Kate and Stacy will have a conversation on how Vertex is helping our customers achieve new heights during unprecedented times.
