hi - we have a corporate event (ca.40 people) coming up next month in the Zurich area and are looking a getting a keynote speaker for a few inspirational words. Has anyone come across such speakers in the area or had experience with an agency? Bertrand Piccard? Ueli Steck?

Re: Guest speaker

I've heard Sepp Blatter comes cheap these days....


Being serious, someone like Thomas Ulrich may be more affordable/available than Ueli Steck.

Him and others here

Not in the area, and probably with travel would work out disproportionally expensive, but I'll put in a word for a friend of ours who now makes a living as a speaker. She's an internationally-renowned mountaineer, with a number of Everest and other climbing records to her name.
