We (climbers and freeriders) wanted to create our own competitions and events. In the 1990s there had been nothing comparable before. We had to organize events ourselves. With the support of Red Bull it became possible. We were able to create and implement extreme sports events.
Now structures have grown and all too often they had to be invented. Approvals, responsibilities, budgets, risks, international guidelines and above all a lot of personal responsibility had to be taken over. Brilliant, I was allowed to be there right from the start and help develop. There had hardly been anything comparable before, especially in these sports disciplines. Basically every first event was absolutely forbidden. Solutions had to be found to exceed these limits.
These developments were and are my learning field for seminars & management trainings!
Meanwhile there are more than 100 events I was allowed to organize, many of them with a high international level.
