Richard Phillips, hero of the movie “Captain Phillips,” to speak about leadership

On Tuesday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m., Richard Phillips will speak at the Quick Center about his experience as captain of the Maersk Alabama, which was hijacked by Somali pirates in April 2009.  For five days, the world watched as the ship and its captain and crew became the center of an extraordinary international drama. The ordeal was portrayed on film in Captain Phillips , starring Tom Hanks, which was nominated for both Oscar and Golden Globe awards.

The title of the lecture is “Steering Your Ship Through Rough Waters: Lessons on Leadership from Captain Phillips.” He is the author of A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea .

Free tickets are available for students and staff, and can be picked up in the BCC. (Must show StagCard.)

This lecture is sponsored by the Fairfield University Student Association (FUSA) and the Quick Center for the Arts.
