Werner Berger and Heshie Segal
Executive Movie Producer, Corporate Consultant, High Altitude Climber, Adventure Trek Organizer and Leader
Werner Berger is founder and president of a number of different companies*: Example: Strategic Results International is a consulting firm dedicated to transforming corporations into opportunities of unprecedented fulfillment and success. His processes focus on co-creating vibrant workplaces in which employees pride themselves for creativity and high performance. Clearly, this translates into increased productivity, higher morale, lower stress, less sick leave and a distinct competitive advantage. Effective leadership and the creation of a culture conducive to high performance are the keys.

Uniqueness counts and this is exactly what Berger brings to his clients around the world. His background of growing up with limited means, no electricity, no running water, and no telephone, coupled with his drive to excel through school and two postgraduate degrees was a significant undertaking in itself. Then, taking over a small business and growing it from 17 to 94 employees in 7 years and initially retiring at age 42 was just Part 2 in Werner’s life. After his retirement, Werner embarked on a 26 year, corporate consulting career which was followed by his climbing adventures, the top of Mount Everest and into the record books.
In May 2007, Werner became the oldest North American (in fact, oldest person in the Western World) to climb the 7-Summits (highest point on all seven continents). His successful climb of Mount Everest became the crowning glory of his seven summits quest. He brings the vitality of his high altitude climbing and diverse life experiences into the public domain for change and/or his corporate consulting, development, and trainings.
Three years after reaching the top of the world, in May 2010, Werner lead a group of 40 people to Mt. Everest Base Camp. The oldest person on the trek was 84 and the youngest 18. To the trekking community’s astonishment, every single person made it; an unheard of success rate . . . the normal drop out rate on this trek is between 25 and 45%.
Werner’s unique perspective allows his clients to see the larger picture of what it means to be in the foothills and to propel themselves to the top.
All of these facts make him the ideal entrepreneur to launch Meet Me at the Top, Inc., create a movie as compelling and transformational as Back from the Edge, and now coordinate, adventure treks and their deeply meaningful and generally life changing experiences.
Werner’s passions for change, his nutrition and health regime, and his climbing, are only superseded by his love of his wife, his four children, and grandchildren.

It’s working beautifully!”…Laurie McCarthy, AFLAC, Business Development

My wife was fed up with my crankiness. Then I sat through one of Heshie’s JetNetting seminars. My attitude took a 180 degree turn and business took off. My new found excitement and magnetism brought my marriage to new heights, too”…Keith Ellison, The Ellison Group
