As the audience were made up of highly successful business people, the speaker needed to be appealing to them, not just on a 'business success' level, they were also looking for a presenter with a unique 'life experience'.
We were looking to engage a specialist to deliver a challenging keynote presentation which demanded attention.
Previously, this group had engaged Richard-de-Crespigny the Qantas pilot credited with bringing 440 passengers to safety after an engine exploded early into the Singapore/Sydney leg of flight.
This was clearly an audience that required an alternate 'out of the box' option, and one that was just
as unique as Richard de Crespigny. We had the perfect option front of mind.
