Bertrand Piccard gave a conference about “unique perspective on the psychology of life, human communication, teamwork, motivation and pioneering spirit, while encouraging attendees to connect with each other in an open dialogue of new and innovative ideas.”
The Swiss physicist, balloonist and adventurer Bertrand Piccard was today the keynote speaker of the opening ceremony at Meeting Professionals International’s (MPI) 2013 European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC).
Piccard derives from a family of adventuring balloonists and was the first person to complete a non-stop balloon flight around the globe.
According to Bertrand Piccard: “Adventure is not necessarily a spectacular deed but rather an ‘extraordinary’ one. It is a state of mind in the face of the unknown, a way of conceiving our existence as an experimental field. We can use our sense of adventure to develop our inner resources and climb our personal path of evolution by assimilating the ethical and moral values that we need to accompany our voyage.”
The show continued with Eliana Burki and her band:
