The Mountain Within: Leadership lessons from Kilimanjaro

LSE public lecture

Herta von Stiegel presents The Mountain Within|, the book and award-winning documentary, telling the story of her climb up Kilimanjaro with 28 disabled climbers. She shares the leadership lessons she learned from this experience, as well as her 25 years in international finance; lessons of enormous value for aspiring business leaders, women in business, and all of us seeking wisdom and clarity in today's turbulent changing world.

Herta von Stiegel established Ariya Capital in 2008 to focus on Africa as the next major opportunity for sustainable venture and private equity investments. She has 25 years of experience in international finance and has led debt and equity transactions in excess of $10 billion. She was MD at AIG Financial Products, where she built a successful European structured finance division, and has also held senior positions at Citibank and JP Morgan in London and New York. She is founder and chair of the Prince's Trust Women's Leadership Group, member of the Women's Leadership Board at Harvard University and serves on the board of the Committee of 200, an organisation of the world's most successful women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders.
