Helga Hengge takes her audience to the summit of highest mountain on Earth.

Illustrated with spectacular photographs of her two-month long ascent – via the North East ridge in Tibet – Helga shares her enthusiasm for the adventure of a great goal and for pushing physical and emotional boundaries in the face of challenge. She talks about the step-by-step ascent, the power of a team, dealing with setbacks, and about trusting your inner strength.

The highlight of her presentation is the ascent to the summit and the fulfillment of a great dream. The moment, when there is only the sky above.

Mount Everest remains a symbol of challenge because in climbing it we conquer not the mountain, but ourselves.

Helga Hengge is an inspiring keynote speaker, author, and mountaineer. She is the first German woman to successfully climb Mount Everest and the Seven Summits. With her appearances at international conferences (such as AIRBUS, Daimler, BMW, IBM) and talk shows she reaches a worldwide audience.

In her presentations Helga takes her corporate audiences to the top of the highest mountains in the world linking the principles of success for outstanding challenges to the principles of success in business.

Reaching the summits of the highest mountains in the world was the high point of an exciting career between the extremes of creative work and outstanding mountaineering achievement. A German-American born in Naperville, Illinois, she resided in neighboring Downers Grove for 7 years, then later lived in New York City for 12 years.  She started her career at VOGUE where she worked as a fashion editor on international campaigns in New York and studied philosophy, marketing, and film at New York University, graduating with honors.

Helga is the author of numerous publications and gained wide popularity through her appearances in prime time talk shows. She has written a bestseller about her Mount Everest ascent, Mount Everest – Only the Sky Above, and the Seven Summits.
