Bruce Kirkby

Photographer, writer and Adventurer
Bruce Kirkby lives life on the edge. An acclaimed explorer, travel writer, and television host (with a degree in engineering physics), he uses his incredible adventures across the globe to provide real-world, practical lessons on risk management and change leadership. Bruce’s travels have taken him to the tip of the highest mountain and to the centre of the driest desert. He draws on these experiences to offer simple strategies to help people confront their fears and learn how to embrace change and growth to see lasting success, both personally and professionally. With journeys spanning more than 80 countries and 2000 days, Bruce’s accomplishments include the first modern crossing of Arabia’s Empty Quarter by camel, a raft descent of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile Gorge by raft, sea kayak traverse of Borneo’s northern coast, and a coast-to-coast Icelandic trek. He also spent six months travelling to and living in a Himalayan Buddhist monastery with his young family — an experience that was chronicled on Travel Channel’s Big Crazy Family Adventure. He’s also the former host of CBC’s No Opportunity Wasted. Bruce is the bestselling author of two travel books, and he is a regular columnist for The Globe and Mail. A multi-National Magazine Award winner, Bruce has also had his writing appear in The New York Times, EnRoute, Huffington Post, Explore, and Canadian Geographic. Bruce is also the winner of a prestigious Western Magazine Award, and his photography was selected by National Geographic as among “the most compelling adventure images of the decade.”

Keynote Convidado: Transforme a Liderança e o Gestão: Navegando pelo Incerto, Desconhecido e Desconforto do Crescimento

Entre as rotinas confortáveis de hoje e as possibilidades de amanhã, existe um labirinto de incertezas, desconhecimento e desconforto. A capacidade de concluir com confiança e competência essa jornada - a jornada arquetípica de todo crescimento humano - é um dos maiores determinantes do sucesso, tanto organizacional quanto pessoal. Infelizmente, há uma suposição generalizada de que equipes e indivíduos têm a habilidade mágica de ceder diante do medo e buscar incertezas sustentadas, fracassos e ignorar os julgamentos - ou não. E isso simplesmente não é verdade. Navegar na mudança e no crescimento é uma habilidade treinável e repetível. Com base em experiências de três décadas de expedições e compartilhando seus aprendizados nos domínios competitivos da produção, fotografia e escrita televisivas, Bruce Kirkby expõe os obstáculos universais à mudança e crescimento - medo, fracasso, julgamento, crise e paralisia - e nos mostra como transformar esses obstáculos em sinais, iluminando o caminho para a inovação, criatividade e sucesso futuros.
