What Benedikt Böhm's clients say
"For several years now, Benedikt has accompanied my management teams as an inspiring speaker, but also practically as coach and input provider in the mountains. The colleagues were always completely enthusiastic because Benedikt manages to “include” people in his adventures at 8,000 meters above sea level and he transforms his learnings into inspiration for everyday life and for work. He succeeds in this especially through his enthusiasm and authenticity and the unique transfer from the death zone to the business world. In addition to the valuable contents of his lectures, I especially appreciate Benedikt’s humble and open way of approaching and responding to every person and can highly recommend him!"
"Benedikt Böhm was a highlight of our management event. His authenticity impressed everyone. Above all, he did a great job of conveying the analogies between sports and business with respect to performance and collaboration and thus inspired all participants."
"Every second of the presentation was authentic, inspiring and captivating. Thank you very much for the very personal insights into your world of borderline experiences - both from a sporting and a business perspective. The response to your talk at our international leadership meeting was as overwhelming as your lecture itself."
"Listening to Benedikt Böhm gives risk management a whole new dimension. He impressed me very much and I am sure that every manager can use a lot from his lectures. In the pursuit of his 8,000-meter speed ascents followed by downhill skiing, he moves at the absolute limit. As a manager he manages to profit from these borderline experiences and leads the performance mountain sports brand Dynafit very successfully. It was great fun to dive into this world."
"Benedikt Böhm was for many participants the real highlight at our event for top executives. His authenticity had everybody spellbound. In particular the analogies between sport and business were perfect for conveying the substance to participants. Of course, it was also a pure pleasure to see how he had transformed our content and especially to work with him in development."
"All participants were totally enthusiastic and let themselves be taken along on „their“ first ascent of an eight-thousand-meter peak. I have never heard a comparably perfect lecture - your authentic enthusiasm is outstanding! Certainly an unforgettable experience!"
"Our expectations were high. Your “to the point“ statements, your breathtaking explanations have completely fulfilled them. The great attention of the audience for your words, the applause and not least the subsequent discussions and conversations in small groups are the best proof of this."

Benedikt Böhm's 2023 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.
