    The Unsinkable Sinks: Leadership Lessons from the Titanic

    Guest Speaker: Timothy Pies, PhD, Concordia University

    Ages 12 and up

    She was the ship of dreams that became the vessel of nightmares. Among the many mysteries of the Titanic's demise is the perpetual question, "Why did she sink?" The most obvious answer is because of an ominous iceberg; the less visible response is because of poor leadership in ship design and collision evacuation. Professor Timothy Pies explores the Titanic's leadership flaws while providing lessons for today's leaders whose most demanding task, say many authorities, is responding to a proliferation of natural disasters and man-made tragedies.
