Benedikt Böhm's 2024 biography

About Benedikt Böhm

Benedikt Böhm is an ambassador for WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) and founder of the Helping Band brand, which is committed to the preservation and expansion of nature and marine protected areas.

Benedikt Böhm‘s presentations consist of breathtaking images and short video clips of rare footage from the world‘s highest mountains. Benedikt Böhm takes a closer look at today‘s economic life from the perspective of an extreme mountaineer and CEO of a world-leading sporting goods manufacturer. The audience quickly realizes that Böhm is not a daredevil extreme athlete, but someone who manages both his expeditions and his company responsibly and that his success is due to careful and conscientious planning.

Ski mountaineering background

Böhm not only climbs 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen or outside aid; he in fact does so extremely fast, using what is called “speed style.” With this uncompromising, speed-oriented style of taking on the highest peaks, the focus is on the clock in order to limit the risk of too much time spent in the “death zone.”

Böhm climbs fast and light without much of any kind of pack in one non-stop push directly from the foot of the mountain to the summit, and then back again on skis. This is done inside of a self-defined space of time (for example, 17 hours up and down Gasherbrum II and its 8,035 meters, or 23.5 hours for Manaslu, which with 8,163 meters is the eighth-highest mountain on the planet).

This kind of speed ascent is a radical deviation from high-altitude mountaineering where this type of expedition would normally take 3 to 5 days. It demands absolute precision and preparation to the nth degree to conquer such a monster in such a short period of time. A part of this is an unbelievable training load and massive discipline. But it also demands the creativity to develop new technology, the courage to think a little differently, and also the readiness to take action.

Benedikt Böhm's 2024 talks & topics

Focus and Ease

Reduction to the essentials is today‘s formula for success given 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? During his speed climbs, Böhm reduces his equipment to the essentials during and climbs the highest mountains in the world with a total luggage weight of 6 kilograms.

Uncertainty and fear

How do we deal with uncertainty (cause)? By identifying our fears (effect) and sharing them through situational leadership in the team, as well as by training
necessary courage muscles.

Resilience and anti-fragility

How do we develop resilience and anti-fragility as a company and each of us individually on our way to achieving extraordinary goals?

Teams in the death zone

How do successful teams behave under pressure in extreme situations? Which methods has Böhm developed in order to successfully lead teams through the death zone at 8,000m?

Speed and risk

How did Böhm develop record speeds in his mountain climbs and in the implementation of entrepreneurial projects? Why are patience and flexibility so important if you want to be fast? And why is speed a fine art for Böhm and the essential strategy for minimizing risk and living intensively?

High goals

How can the inner “momentum“ be built up in order to achieve the seemingly impossible and how can the risk be calculated in the best possible way?

Change and setbacks

Which thought patterns are needed to consistently pursue new paths and successfully manage major changes? And how do you find your way back to the original mindset after huge setbacks?

Brand management

Böhm is considered an absolute brand specialist in the sports industry who has succeeded in developing an unloved brand into a world-leading “love brand” that fans all over the world tattoo on their skin. Why does successful brand management mean concentration on the strategy and the ability to say “no“ to everything else?

Sustainability

Böhm is committed to sustainability with efficient added value, both privately and in business. He is an ambassador for the WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) and founder of the Helping Band brand. He has also launched the #cleanerthanbefore initiative. With the Dynafit brand, he has introduced a lifetime guarantee on all products, because the most sustainable product is the one we already own. Böhm‘s motto is “You always make an impact, and you can always make a difference.“ How can a precisely fitting sustainability strategy be developed from the brand core and how does this strategy become the credo inside and outside the company?

Diversity

How can most diverse cultures be managed and diverse teams be inspired for a common goal? In the last 20 years, Böhm has expanded the Dynafit brand in over 40 countries. He has also been on expeditions in many countries and provinces with travel warnings. Over the years, he has developed his own strategies that gave him access to the land and people in regions such as Xinjiang, Iran, Kurdistan, Pakistan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and Tibet.
