Tom was the sole survivor of a work related plane crash that took the lives of 7 other men on November 16, 2008. Tom has taken this experience and developed a world class presentation focusing on the behaviors and decisions of both pilot and passengers, ultimately highlighting the preventability of this tragic incident. Tom explores the pressures we all face and how they affect our decisions, the difference between bravery and courage, and how the 10 factors of risk tolerance contribute to our willingness to accept risk, whether we are conscious of it or not.
