PLENARY SESSION WITH DR. JOE MACINNIS

 

joe MacInnisIn 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
