Mountaineer and adventurer Katja Staartjes: “Are you looking for a speaker to inspire your team and company? My story motivates your people and stimulates improved teamwork and cooperation. This enables you to go to the very limit to achieve the best possible result. My story is based on my personal experiences as Himalayan mountaineer and expedition leader. Combined with my background in senior management roles, I can well make the translation to your organisation and situation.

Stronger as a team

My expeditions in the Himalayas have shown me clearly that team spirit and teamwork is essential to perform. And that is no different within organisations. The intense and extreme experiences in high mountain ranges form a powerful metaphor to inspire your teams to realise win-win situations and ambitious results.

Excellent team spirit

Conditions to reach excellent cooperation / teamwork within a team:
• joint objective (top)
• commitment
• trust
• complementing each other
• open communication

Customised presentations and workshops

I customise the speech both in terms of duration and content, and focus is possible on certain themes. If required, certain issues can be developed in an interactive way. Should the emphasis be on interaction, the session can be extended by a half day or a full day, depending on what you need.

Impressive images

The experiences I gained in my expeditions to peaks such as Mount Everest and other 8000+ giants, are illustrated with images. By the photos and the intense experiences in the high mountains, my story comes to life. It is as though you are yourselves in the Himalayas. The comparison I make with issues you face in daily practice then becomes tangible.

Motivating books

I am an author as well as keynote speaker. I wrote the books Hoog spel (High stakes), Top-inspiratie (available in English as Peak Performance) and Lopen over de grens – Great Himalaya Trail door Nepal (Hiking along the border – Great Himalaya Trail through Nepal).”
