Helga Hengge

Helga Hengge is an inspiring keynote speaker, author and mountaineer. She was the first German woman to successfully climb Mount Everest and the Seven Summits – the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Mount Everest is at 8850 meters (29,029 feet) literally the world’s “highest” challenge and the two-month long ascent—step by step and camp by camp—a stunning metaphor for tackling great challenges.

In her inspiring keynote presentations Helga takes her corporate audiences to the summit of the highest mountain in the world and gives an emotional and authentic insight into the dynamics of tackling the ultimate challenge. Accompanied by spectacular images of her two-month long ascent she shares her story of pushing physical and emotional boundaries and the secrets of success—inspiring leadership, team work and trust, dealing with setbacks, and the courage to step out and up to the summit.
