Behind the Blockbuster: Real-Life Captain Phillips Shares His Stories

Captain Phillips, hero of the high seas and inspiration for the Academy Award-nominated namesake film starring Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips, stopped by the HWA offices last week. He kept us engaged with his amazing true stories and shared valuable lessons about Leadership in Times of Crisis.

Head over to his video channel to watch all the clips, and see how Captain Phillips — who received standing ovations at close to 50 events this year — could inspire your audience at your next event.


Rave Reviews

Captain Richard Phillips was fantastic and gave a top-notch presentation. His story showing great courage and endurance was remarkable. People really resonated with what he said, and in these difficult economic times, we think the audience wanted to hear a good outcome, for a change, that showed leadership and heroism at its best. (Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry)

People loved him!! The presentation went smoothly, the reception was great: we did photos, he stayed at the VIP event for over an hour chatting with folks. Very successful!! (Grocery Manufacturers Association)

The captain was a hit. (Johnson, Heidepriem & Abdallah Law Firm )
