Captain Richard Phillips
For five days in April 2009, the world was glued to their TV screens as Captain Richard Phillips became the center of an extraordinary international drama when he was captured by Somali pirates who hijacked his ship, the first hijacking of a U.S. ship in more than 200 years.
An amazing leader…a highly intriguing story that is now also a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks…Captain Phillips not only shares his compelling story – presented in his warm, highly personal style, but as a “floating CEO” in charge of the day-to-day operations of a multi-million dollar ship and the crew he managed, he also draws lessons from those dramatic events that can help your audience and your organization survive and thrive, even in these times when hope and support seem to be in very short supply.
