Captain Phillips will not only share his compelling story, but will also draw lessons from those dramatic events that can help organizations survive and thrive, even in these times when hope and support seem to be in very short supply.
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) April 12, 2015
The 2015 Global TapRooT® Summit is excited to announce Richard Phillips as Keynote Speaker. Phillips is the real life inspiration for the movie "Captain Phillips" starring Tom Hanks, and author of "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea."
For five days in April 2009, the world was glued to their TV screens as Captain 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.
Summit attendees will have a chance to meet this “hero of the high seas.” Captain Phillips will not only share his compelling story, but will also draw lessons from those dramatic events that can help organizations survive and thrive, even in these times when hope and support seem to be in very short supply. He will discuss the vital importance of leadership and teamwork, combined with a belief in the power and potential of yourself and your team, as seen through the eyes of an unassuming hero who conquered an extraordinary challenge.
Global TapRooT® Summit week, June 1-5, 2015, Las Vegas, NV includes everything essential for a professional conference for those interested in advanced root cause analysis techniques and performance improvement for the workplace. Five Keynote speakers, 50+ customizable breakout sessions, and networking with peers and experts provide a unique experience for attendees to create an improvement plan to take back to their facilities.
