BIG BANG 1 Robotic Summit i Denmark 05.12.2018

I would like to say THANK YOU for participating  yesterday. Your unique contribution helped create the content of what until yesterday was just an empty shell – COOL that you would join – we ended up with 263 participants all in total 😊
A lot of good points came up yesterday, but as you point out – if something shall come from the piece of original innovation we created together yesterday, it’s up to, among other things, you as a participant to take the best points and actively use them in your work for the future.
I hope we will see many new, innovative and skewed approaches to how we can strengthen robotic technology in Denmark across all industries – it was at least the intention of #RCBigBang

Morten Nielsen Cluster Manager SDU

DTU - Danish Technical University 2018

Lene spoke to 100+ people at ”Startup Nation” at DTU Denmark in November 2018

It was, indeed, very powerful and I can highly recommend Lene as an inspirational strategy and sustainability speaker with a mobilizing angle. Lene looked at the agenda and goals for the event and increased it to a more ambitious one: To not only give a hand to growth and entrepreneurship, but to engage in changing the world to the better in doing so. To inspire companies small or large to incorporate the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals in the Business Strategy. • “Lene is a true entrepreneur herself and thus she is very trustworthy, • “Lene dares to provoke and you almost feel guilty that you don’t focus enough on the 17 SDGs already”, • “Lene uses her Everest experience to give you a mental picture of how to set an impossible goal and then start the journey uphill to the unknown, programming your brain again and again with your mission statement and reaching the summit – very powerful!”.
Lene spoke to 100+ people at ”Startup Nation” at DTU Denmark in November 2018. The title refers to the Danish startup scene and the goal was to strengthen the entrepreneurial culture and involve more experienced business people in the world of entrepreneurs… as business angels, mentors and sparring partners, as advisory board or executive board members, as investors with time and capital. The event was arranged and sponsored by DTU Science park and The Keystones network together with private Business Angels. And isn’t it amazing how many similarities you find comparing a mountain climber and an entrepreneur/a founder of her/his own business? It is challenging and uphill, the environment changes all the time, you need to adapt and take quick decisions, you are almost alone on the mountain, it can be very cold at the top… So Lene’s speech was very credible and effective as she inspired experienced business people to be a force for good towards entrepreneurs - lean forward and accept the unknown. Also, We have had lots of positive feedback from the participants and comments like: It was, indeed, very powerful and I can highly recommend Lene as an inspirational strategy and sustainability speaker with a different angle. Lotte Marschall, Business Angel and Professional Board member, Copenhagen, Denmark


Task: World-class-Motivation of multi cultural team with focus on: “The biggest challenge we face in our day-to-day is being able to understand someone else's perspective in such a highly diverse team. How do we communicate with each other, achieve goals & overcome obstacles together while still having mutual respect? However, we are also a quite young and ambitious team, so questions such as: How do you get out of your comfort zone and think outside the box or how do you set yourself up for success to become a true leader are critical for us as well.

Will it make a difference if we book Lene ?

I want to let you know that your lifelong message of hope, positive action, self-help and attitude have been an inspiration to me for many years.  In my role as a recruiter I coach people daily on the challenges they face supporting demanding clients in business cultures that are ambiguous and sometimes just mean.  It resonates well with me that you have use your experiences Climbing High as a platform to motivate others.  I feel like you have mentored and enabled me to do the same thing for many people and I wanted to thank you for that.

Lene – Thank you again. If you ever think about combining astonishing story telling with the release of your full potential to achieve what’s never been accomplished before – do not hesitate to reach out to Lene.                                        Peter Dahl – Sales Director – VERO MODA

Lene – Thank you again for your great performance.
In connection with our global sales meeting at VERO MODA, where 140 salespeople from all over the world were invited, topics as ambitious growth and how we as humans can release our full potential – through disciplining how we utilize our brains capacity were in focus. We have an outrageous ambition for our Brand. 
I aimed to find the best person who are able to combine an incredible and goal-setting story with igniting excessive growth and mobilize and releasing potential in our teams – with the motivation of achieving unprecedented growth within VERO MODA over the coming 4 years. 
Therefore, I called Lene Gammelgaard and asked her if she could be interested in sharing her knowledge and extreme experience based insights on human psychology – contributing to how you, as a salesperson, set your goals and work with yourself to get to the summit. 

Two incredible hours flew in Lene’s company, and in an exceptional manner, Lene managed to connect our dreams at VERO MODA with the dream she had, when she climbed Mount Everest. Rarely, have I seen 140 salespersons be so captivated and dedicated for two whole hours. We experienced Standing ovation for the first time ever – in my time with VERO MODA.

Lene innovated a mobilizing process – for us to draw motivation from in the years to come. She delivered so much more than her Everest story. 
For the reasons being, I give Lene my warmest recommendations. And if you ever think about combining astonishing story telling with the release of your full potential to achieve what’s never been accomplished before – do not hesitate to reach out to Lene. 

A big thanks to Lene.

“Your lecture was a highlight of our expansion event. I must say that you have reached your goal and are among the Top 10 Motivational speakers in the World. Although the lecture was excellently oriented towards the transformational journey of the company as a whole, it was particularly well-suited for our key project, the refinancing of the company, so to speak the journey to the Everest of capital markets. We issued a new bond in the following days, and the teams had to manage all the preparations within a short period of time and qualitatively. It was a task, which was new to all.
