Linda Greenlaw illustrates her approach to effective leadership amid volatility and the critical importance of preparation and extreme risk-taking in any setting.

Linda’s incomparable skill as a fishing-boat captain was first documented in Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm, the best-selling book-turned-blockbuster movie that exposed the hazards faced by deep-sea commercial fishers.

Drawing from her subsequent memoirs, she delivers a visceral look at the profession’s rigors, while chronicling a lifetime spent proving herself to peers and critics alike in a competitive, male-dominated industry.

She provides a no-holds-barred outline for how to accelerate achievement through careful preparation and the cultivation of a strong work ethic and risk-management skills, while emphasizing that success depends on being a good leader and teammate.

With fascinating stories of her transformation from fisherman to public persona and renowned hero, and lessons on leadership, success and tenacity, Linda engages audiences with unique and powerful insight on thriving in any environment. Projecting authenticity, grit and determination, she challenges audiences to set aspirational goals and make a plan to achieve them.
