PLENARY SESSION WITH
DR. JOE MACINNIS
In his presentation on
Leading Safety, Dr. Joseph MacInnis describes a harrowing escape
from death in a research sub during a three-mile dive under the
North Atlantic and what it taught him about leadership, teamwork
and safety. He follows this with three dramatic stories featuring
Academy Award winning director and deep-sea explorer James Cameron
and shuttle astronaut Dave Williams. The stories about his two
friends show how courage, innovation, collaboration and strong
commitment to safety are key to accomplishing success. Dr.
MacInnis' presentation includes riveting video clips of Cameron
leading a four-sub "Mars Mission" to a submerged sea mount,
Williams training underwater for his space walks, and Cameron's
astonishing discovery inside the Titanic during his recent
Discovery Channel expedition.
This presentation is about leadership and teamwork in extreme
environments where safety is a priority. It is especially relevant
in today's uncertain economy. It reveals how individuals working
with advanced technology under life-threatening conditions
demonstrate new forms of leadership that can be applied to every
deadline-driven, management challenge. The audience takes home a
new understanding of how to lead safety and a renewed commitment to
apply it. Simultaneous Interpretation
