Fredrik Sträng disrupts conventional norms

by challenging the most deadly mountains

on the planet.

From being notoriously afraid of heights and seeing therapists trying to treat his fear of death, he has become Scandinavia's foremost high altitude climber with more than nine peaks over 8000 m and a Guinness World Record under the belt.


In his talk, he will discuss risk and fear, but not least our relationship towards it. How what we normally think of as risky, generally has no foundation in real life, probabilities nor statistics. By changing this assessment, he means that not only will we have a richer life, but also be able to make better decisions.


"I have always been afraid of heights and scared of death. The remedy was never to avoid heights but learn how to climb." – Fredrik Sträng
