Dr Bertrand Piccard
Pioneering spirit to invent the future
With his dual identity of explorer and medical doctor, Bertrand Piccard combines science, psychology and adventure to motivate audiences to go beyond the obvious and reach their goals.
Based on the experience of achieving two historic firsts like flying around the world non-stop in a balloon and without fuel in a solar-powered airplane – which both were considered to be impossible feats – he shares his knowledge about throwing believes, certitudes and habits over board, as ballast, in order to find new ways of thinking.
Through the themes of team building, human communication, relations with partners and leadership, he will explain how to start a project when nobody believes in it.
He will also touch on paradigm shifts in entrepreneurial decisions as well as in protection of the environment, and share his vision on innovation and crisis management, courage and confidence.
