Benedikt Böhm climbs mountains of up to 8,000 m not only without oxygen and outside help, but in the so-called "speed style" to reduce the risk by staying in the death zone for a shorter time. Reduction to the essentials is today's formula for success in the multitude of options and paths we can choose every day. By focusing on the essentials, goals are achieved faster and we usually end up happier. But why do we find it so difficult to reduce? Benedikt Böhm sheds light on today's business life from the perspective of an extreme mountaineer and CEO of a world-leading sporting goods manufacturer. Benedikt Böhm's lectures consist of breathtaking pictures and short video clips with rare footage from the world's highest mountains. The audience quickly realizes that Böhm is not a daredevil extreme athlete, but manages both his expeditions and his company responsibly, that his success is due to careful and conscientious planning.
In his lectures, he answers questions such as:
"For several years now, Benedikt has accompanied my management teams as an inspiring speaker, but also practically as a coach and input provider on the mountain. My colleagues have always been completely enthusiastic because Benedikt manages to take people with him on his adventures at 8,000 meters above sea level and to transform his learnings into inspiration for everyday life and work. He succeeds in this especially through his enthusiasm and authenticity as well as the unique transfer from the death zone to the business world. Besides the always valuable content, what I appreciate most about Benedikt is his humble and open way of approaching and responding to every person, and I can highly recommend him!"
Thomas Schmall, Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, Engineering Division, and Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group Components.
