Rainer Petek is author, strategic advisor, keynote speaker and extreme climber. Already at the age of 19 he climbed the north face of the Grandes Jorasses - one of the most difficult walls in the Alps. Today he advises international companies and managers from Germany to the digitally leading Silicon Valley. The graduate organizational developer knows: "On the mountain and in business, it"˜s all about reliability and the courage to make prudent use of emerging opportunities. With a great deal of humor, strong analogies and breathtaking images from vertical cliffs, Rainer Petek whets the appetite for the unknown and proves to be a perfect source of inspiration for leadership and change. The author of nine books inspires both on stage and online with powerful thought-provoking impulses from the North Face and brings solution approaches for complex business topics to the point. Rainer Petek provides lasting inspiration and encourages managers and teams in transitional phases to tackle their entrepreneurial North Face.

Customer testimonials:
„Rainer Petek‘s North Face Principle is a powerful and original approach
to finding new ways in challenging business situations.“
Prof. KR Friedrich Macher, CEO GRAMPETCARGO, Austria

„The speech was sensationally received by the participants. Rainer Petek has understood in an excellent way how to carry us along emotionally and with regard to content, how to carry us away into his world and how to open our eyes for new and necessary ways of seeing and acting. The whole thing was extremely credible, extremely entertaining and very, very appropriately tailored to our needs.“ Ingolf Narr, Reemtsma GmbH, Area Sales Manager

„Managing the uncertain – even the selection of a speaker always has something to do with uncertainty for an organizer. One day after our event, we have the certainty: You have inspired 1,200 colleagues.“ Matthias Schenkel, Kreissparkasse Ludwigsburg


The mountains fascinate me. Extreme climbing tours anyway, but it also has an incredibly beneficial effect to be on easier tours: Creativity is stimulated, mental knots dissolve and solutions become obvious, because the size of the thoughts grows with the vastness of the view. In contrast, I am always on the lookout for the latest trends in Silicon Valley.
