Captain Larry Brudnicki is the real-life Captain of the Coast Guard ship that performed two dramatic rescues during the storm that became known as The Perfect Storm, and inspired the book that was on the New York Times best-seller list and the blockbuster movie.

Based on his presentations, corporations, associations, and organizations can implement the steps necessary for success while avoiding the pitfalls. He motivates and inspires audiences, striking a perfect balance between humor and real-life drama as he tells a true story of leadership, teamwork, courage, and risk management strategies. Every type of business and industry will find Captain Brudnicki's presentation valuable because the strategies that were successful saving lives during the Perfect Storm can help any organization become more successful.
