Felix Baumgartner


Felix Baumgartner is best known for his world record-breaking skydive with Redbull when he jumped in free-fall from the Earth’s stratosphere. The Austrian daredevil is an expert in overcoming challenges, peak performance and cultivating determination to achieve your goals, topics which he gladly covers in his public speaking. Charismatic and passionate, Felix’s dedication to discovery is infectious, inspiring audiences to prove what they are capable of. Felix can motivate employees to increase their productivity, or inspire school children to leap for the stars, his reach as a speaker is monumental.

Felix’s love of danger started at a young age when he found himself dreaming of skydiving from great heights. By 1999, aged 30, he jumped from the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and broke the world record for the highest building parachute jump in doing so. Only four years later, he flew across the English Channel thanks to custom-built carbon fibre wings. With a taste for being the first to overcome a dangerous challenge, Felix was soon searching for his next adventure. His taste for heart-racing action is palpable as soon as Felix steps onto the stage. As he retells his stories, his eyes bright, presenting with a ferocious passion, audiences can’t help but be captivated.

Arguably, Felix’s greatest achievement was his skydive with Redbull, where he broke the record for the highest skydive ever. Armed with a team of scientists, they started working together in 2010. It wasn’t until 2012 that Felix started doing test jumps from 21,818 metres. Prior to opening his parachute, he enjoyed 3 minutes and 43 seconds of free fall. But that was nothing compared to the real jump. Later in 2012, he leapt from a capsule that had floated via a balloon into the Earth’s stratosphere, protected only by a pressurized suit. Feliz fell from 38,969.3 metres, at a speed of 843.6 mph. His free fall lasted nearly 5 minutes.
