Saturday, June 11th, at 9am
Point Park University’s GRW Theater
Come listen to great speakers give TedTalk-like presentations!
Joe’s talk is: “The Winston Churchill Myths and Realities, and What We Can Learn from Them”
Winston Churchill is the most mythologized leader in world history. This talk uses famous (but bogus) Churchill stories and quotes as examples to take the audience through the myths about Churchill as an individual hero. Dr. Coohill gives the untold story of how Churchill led a large coalition of quarreling politicians and military officials to help win World War II. Individuals and organizations can learn much more about teamwork and leadership from what Churchill actually said and did, rather than what movies, legends, and self-improvement books lead us to believe.
Joe Coohill is an Oxford-educated history professor who has published widely, and is a compelling speaker. His presentations give organizations historical inspiration for improvement and success!
