FinancialForce.com is proud to present World Champion Eco-Challenge Adventure Racer, San Diego City Firefighter, New York Times Best-Selling Author and CNN Hero Robyn Benincasa as our 2015 FinancialForce Community Day keynote guest speaker! With a resume even longer than the achievements listed above, she definitely knows a thing or two about building world class teams that succeed against the toughest of odds.
She’ll be joining us live on stage to kick off this year’s customer conference and inspire us to grab life with one hand, teammates with the other and help us create that special magic that makes us all better together.
In addition to firefighting, racing and being the author of How Winning Works (published by Harlequin), she is also Founder of the Project Athena Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping women who’ve endured medical setbacks achieve their athletic dreams. Not to mention she is also a 3 time Guinness World Record Distance Paddler and proud owner of 2 metal ‘bionic hips.’
For the last 20 years, she and her teammates have been competing at the front of the pack in the most unique and compelling classrooms on earth – the jungles of Borneo, the Himalayan peaks of Tibet, the rivers of Fiji, the rainforests of Ecuador and the desert of Namibia. They’ve been studying the good, the bad, and the not-so-pretty in extreme teamwork and mastering the skills required to inspire a group of semi-exhausted people through a seemingly endless series of checkpoints. They’ve been working against crazy deadlines in constantly changing conditions and all in pursuit of an audacious, seemingly impossible goal. Sounds a lot like your life as a business leader, right?
Customers, we welcome you to join this special speaking event at FinancialForce Community Day and hear from Robyn first-hand on Monday September 14th, 2015. Register today!
