Captain Richard de Crespigny, hailed an international hero when he guided a stricken Qantas A380 back to safety following a drama-charged mid-air incident a decade ago, has put the finishing touches to his latest series of inspirational speaking topics.
Following the success of his best-selling book QF32, which detailed how his training, leadership and in-flight management enabled him to guide the 469-passenger aircraft safely back to Singapore’s Changi Airport, and his follow-up book Fly!, Richard de Crespigny, acknowledged as one of the most sought-after corporate speakers in the country, has a new backlog of life experiences to share with his audiences.
His experiences, gleaned from his earlier career with the RAAF, to the corridors of power in Canberra as Aide-De-Camp to two Governor-Generals and finally to the cockpit of a Qantas A380, provide a riveting platform for keynote messages that to date have seen him address top level corporate gatherings throughout Australia and overseas.
Among topics he has settled on for his new series of addresses are:
- Experience is a Curse – what got you here, definitely won’t get you there
- Survive the crisis, Protect your Brand” – leadership, teamwork and communication at your worst times
- Culture – building teams that step up, thrive and survive
- Disrupt Yourself! -navigating through risk, change, uncertainty and the unexpected
