Aron Ralston, Inspiration for OscarĀ® Nominated 127 Hours Featured Speaker at EXIT Realty's 2011 Annual Convention

Real estate agents look forward to education, inspiration, motivation and fun

EXIT Realty is excited about the future of real estate! We're heading to Nashville and the fabulous Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center October 25-29 for the gala event of the year!  Renowned keynote speakers, industry experts, cutting edge technology, and unbelievable giveaways converge under the roof mixing education, inspiration, motivation and fun!

Featured at this year's convention is Aron Ralston, the inspiration for the Oscar® Nominated film, 127 Hours

After being pinned by a half-ton boulder for nearly a week in a remote three-foot-wide slot canyon in southern Utah, Ralston narrowly escaped death by severing his right forearm with a dull pocketknife. After applying a tourniquet, he hiked and rappelled for five hours through Blue John Canyon before searchers in a helicopter miraculously rescued him. Ralston documented the life-altering experience and his remarkable will to survive in his New York Times best-selling book, Between a Rock and a Hard Place. 

Ralston graduated as Carnegie Mellon University’s top student in mechanical engineering in 1997, with Phi Beta Kappa honors for a second degree in French. He left his job as a mechanical engineer with Intel in 2002 to follow his passion for outdoor adventures in Colorado. Aided by radical prosthetic devices that he helped design, Ralston has expanded his adventures to the world’s great peaks, deserts, and rivers. He is the only person to have solo-climbed all 59 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot-high mountains in winter; the only person with a disability to have skied from the summit of Denali, North America’s tallest mountain; and in April 2009, he became the first amputee to row a raft through the Grand Canyon.
