Physical and mental preparation, courage, coolness in making extremely difficult decisions, teamwork, great determination to reach the summit and not to be discouraged by difficulties, this is what a professional mountaineer needs. This is why the life of a climber has many points of contact with the corporate world.

Riccardo Bergamini is originally from Lucca, where he was born and raised. He started as a climber in his hometown, which then led him to explore the world’s highest mountain ranges. He has completed numerous mountaineering expeditions to Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Alaska and Peru.

One of his most significant feats was climbing mountains of over 8000 metres in Tibet and Nepal without the use of oxygen cylinders, thus becoming the first Tuscan to reach a peak of this size and one of the few mountaineers in the world to do so without artificial respirators. He has also conquered several mountains between 7,000 and 6,000 metres high.


After stopping due to the Covid19 pandemic in 2021 and 2022, he organised two new mountaineering expeditions to Nepal and Pakistan.
In November 2021, he reached an unclimbed peak in the Himalayas never conquered by any man before. In October 2022, he climbed the Khosar Gang (6401 metres) in the Shigar Valley, in the Gilgit Baltistan region, in the autumn, an unsuitable season in that hemisphere for climbing, becoming the first Italian along with his climbing partner to reach the summit.




Riccardo shares his story with many amusing anecdotes.

He also explains the similarities between the worlds of mountaineering and that of business.

The importance of mental and physical preparation, resilience, courage, determination to achieve goals and how to improve from mistakes.
