Benedikt Böhm is the International Managing Director of the ski-touring outfitter DYNAFIT. This brand evolved from insolvency to the market leader since he started in 2003. In his second life Benedikt Böhm is an extreme-mountaineer and speaker. With his catching presentations he skillfully establishes ties between the extreme world of the mountains – from the so called death zone- to the world of business. Böhm is not a risk athlete who is tired of life. At sport as well as in business life he is planning his high goals meticulously and with passion to realize those. Böhm finished his education at Universities in the USA and England but the most precious experiences for his career in management have been his endeavors in the mountains.


Benedikt Böhm’s presentations include breathtaking images and short video clips with rare takes of the highest mountains of the world. The audience is quickly aware that Böhm is not a nutty extreme athlete, he is a businessman who leads his expeditions as well as his corporation with responsibility which is needed to achieve this kind of success by exact planning.

his presentations he gives answers to questions like:

  • How do I prepare myself to reach such an utopian goal to climb an 8000 meter high mountain in such a short time without artificial oxygen?
  • How do I build up an inner ‘momentum’ to overcome the seemingly impossibility and how am I able to calculate the risks the best way?
  • What part plays speed by minimizing the risk but also patience and flexibility with large projects?
  • How do we behave under absolute exceptional circumstances?
  • Which part plays fear and courage?
  • How do I overcome fear on my way to higher goals?
  • What is essential and what is only important respectively what can be cut out?
  • Why means innovation for Böhm primarily ‘easiness’ not only as a mountaineer but also in business matters and maybe even in his private life?
  • What does it take to find new paths and lead a change successfully and how do we get back to our original attitude after a harsh battering?
