Fight - Fall - Rise again

Global Top Speaker Christa Kinshofer »Kinsi« was at the top of her game, accustomed to success and a media darling. Then suddenly a stroke of fate catapulted her back to the bottom of the career ladder.


Christa Kinshofer (Kinsi) was one of the most successful alpine skiers in the world. Her long list of successes includes: seven-time World Cup Champion, Sportswoman of the year, overall Ski World Cup Champion in her main discipline, the Giant Slalom, and three-time medal winner at the Olympic Games. As a professional sportswoman she knows just how hard it can be to lift oneself out of the depths of despair, have faith in oneself, keep one’s eyes fixed on the goal ahead and make a comeback. She describes this very movingly in her book ‘Helden werden nicht gewürfelt – kämpfen – stürzen – aufstehen’ (‘There is no such thing as an accidental Hero – fight, fall and rise again’). In her presentations she is able to transmit this mental strength to her audience.

Alongside her work as a public speaker, she has also published several books, organises golf tournaments, is a consultant to the African soft drinks manufacturer Bizz Up (www.bizzup-drink.com) and is committed to various charity projects.

Christa Kinshofer, a power house of a speaker, transmits passion, the strength to cope with victory and defeat and the necessary motivation to fire her audience with enthusiasm.
