OPENING KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DR. JOE MACINNIS – PHYSICIAN, SCIENTIST AND DEEP-SEA EXPLORER
Physician, scientist and deep-sea explorer, Dr. Joe MacInnis studies leadership in high-risk environments. In this session, he talks about the team genius needed to pilot a research sub three miles under the North Atlantic, work on a Special Forces operational team and conduct a space walk on the International Space Station.
He uses the inside story of the $30-million James Cameron-National Geographic seven-mile science dive into the Mariana Trench to reveal the primary principles of team genius: deep empathy, deep eloquence and deep endurance. Dr. Joe will demonstrate how these same principles can be used for valuation beyond borders.
