The Harry Walker Agency - Hyatt Regency
For five days in April 2009, the world was glued to their TV screens as Capt. Phillips became the center of an extraordinary international drama when he was captured by Somali pirates who hijacked his ship, the first hijacking of a US ship in more than 200 years. A "floating CEO" in charge of the day-to-day operations of a multi-million dollar ship, Captain Richard Phillips has a compelling story and valuable lessons for anyone involved in running a business today.
