Language:

English, Spanish

The story of Nando Parrado is one of the most important survival stories known to mankind. In October 1972, Nando Parrado and his teammates were traveling to Chile to participate in an international rugby exhibition, but their flight tragically crashed in the Andes Mountains at an altitude of 4,000 meters.

In the crash, Nando Parrado lost several family members and friends, and suffered from severe injuries. His story of survival begins when he manages to overcome and survive, escaping the most inhospitable environment on the planet, in which he remained for 72 days.

Nando Parrado is an inspiration for those who wish to transform themselves, face challenges and climb their own personal or professional mountains.Through his testimony of survival and loss, Parrado promotes among audiences around the world the success of an organization through leadership, teamwork, motivation, crisis management, overcoming obstacles and fear management.Through his testimony of survival and loss, Parrado promotes among audiences around the world the success of an organization through leadership, teamwork, motivation, crisis management, overcoming obstacles and fear management. These are keys that Nando Parrado himself has applied in his post-sport career as a successful businessman, producer and presenter.

His tragic experience not only inspires and moves people around the world, but also leads them to lessons in human and business survival. His story has been reflected in the bestseller "Alive" and in his book "Miracle in the Andes", as well as in the feature film of the same name, in which Ethan Hawke played Parrado.
