THE CIRCUIT

LEADING AUTHORITIES' ROUND UP OF THOUGHT LEADERSHIP, TRENDS, AND PERSONALITIES ON THE SPEAKING CIRCUIT

A Navy Seal Walks into the Terminator’s Office…

No, It’s not the opening line to a great “I’ll be back” joke. It was the beginning of a working session between former Navy Seal Chris Fussell and the former Governor of California. The two convened a group recently to discuss how a distributed network model of leadership can transform the traditional bureaucratic model of top-down leadership. It’s a great read about culture, communication, and the need for a servant leadership mentality in the information age.

Flying High.... Saving Lives

This week, Wired Magazine featured the amazing Keller Rinaudo and his company Zipline who are saving lives in Rwanda by delivering medical supplies on demand with sophisticated drones. Now expanding into neighboring Tanzania, Zipline has already clocked more than 60,000 deliveries to difficult or impossible to reach locations while training and employing local engineers and health workers. With potential to expand further in Africa, Rinaudo has his eyes set globally, saying, “Rural healthcare is a huge problem in the US too.”
