Nando Parrado - Alive – The Story That Will Change Your Life
The plane crash in the Andes in 1972 – also known as the Andes ight disaster or the Miracle in the Andes – oc-curred on 13 October when a chartered aircraft crashed into the mountains between Argentina and Chile. On board was a rugby team from Uruguay who were travelling to the Chilean capital of Santiago to play a match, as well as some of the players’ friends and family. The plane wreck and 16 survivors were found on 22 December 1972 – two and a half months later.
Nando Parrado survived the crash but lost his sister, his mother and many friends. The reason he and 15 others could survive for so long in a place not suited to human life was that they had good leadership, team spirit and strate-gies for decision-making.
Monica Lewinsky - Dealing With Life’s Greatest Adversities
On Monday 20 October 2014, Monica Lewinsky broke her silence after more than ten years, when she spoke in front of over a thousand young entrepreneurs at the Forbes 30 under 30 meeting in Philadelphia.
“Today I see myself as someone who, against the odds, survived. Having survived myself, what I want to do now is help other victims of the shame game survive, too. I hope to take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past,” said Lewinsky.
Lewinsky talks about public shame, bullying, how she eventually lost her faith in herself and fought with sui- cidal thoughts, but how the love and support of her family helped her to carry on ghting. Lewinsky says that what is needed is a comprehensive change of attitude, both on the internet and in society generally. She feels that all of us, private individuals and public gures alike, can be hit by shame to the same extent.

Mike Walsh - Designing your business for the 21st century
We are moving into a new world – one shaped by a generation that has never known a life without sophisticated mobile technology. It is a challenge for us all to think about how we do business.
If you could start over with a blank canvas, how would you design your company? Would your youngest employee be making coffee, or be on the executive management team? Is Big Data something your IT department should worry about, or is it a weapon to be used by the top management? Should you ban social networks, or use them to collaborate more ef ciently?
Stephen M.R Covey - Speed of Trust - How to optimize your organization
Stephen M.R. Covey is a sought-after speaker, entrepreneur and advisor in leadership, trust, ethics, sales and ef ciency. He has been involved in starting the companies CoveyLink and FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice, for example, which have helped some 90% of all companies on the Fortune 100 list, among others.
He is also the author of the best-selling book Speed of Trust, where he breaks down the old notion that trust is about soft, social factors. Instead Stephen claims that trust is a major economic factor that can be both meas- ured and learned. This is something that can make organisations more pro table, people more supportive and relationships more energetic. Nothing is as fast as the speed of trust, and in a global economy no company can make it without a leader who has the skills to create, expand and restore trust among shareholders.
Covey is an expert on the subject and speaks with passion and insight about how you can work with and hone your trust-inspiring qualities.
