Tangible Ireland took off in 2009!

Tangible Flight Plan 2009

Below is a copy of the first email we sent to encourage friends and colleagues to join us on the Tangible Flight Plan 2009 which ultimately became the first of the Tangible Leadership Series.

Dear Colleague,

Tangible Success Flight 2009   ## Booking Reference: TSF-09-NOW##

As we all face into the festive season we now must balance our focus on family and friends and the economic battles ahead in the new year. We face into an unprecedented environment where all constants are variable and all variables are constant.

Where do we focus our energy, our depleting capital and our collective inspiration? What technologies are obsolete, what principles are paramount? Some of us have been there before and understand that this current scenario cannot last forever and will pass.

This situation will open up many new horizons and opportunities for those astute enough to grasp them. In the words of one of my old teachers: ‘we have to knuckle down’ and engage in the necessary changes and challenges to ensure success.

In Chinese the word ‘CRISIS’ loosely translates as : ‘Opportunity Riding on a Dangerous Wind!’

In this turmoil where many are losing their mettle Tangible Ireland-your partner in the new global economy presents a Tangible Success Flight 2009 bringing together upwards of 6 key speakers whose collective wisdom and insight will unlock much of the latent potential in our audience. These speakers coupled with the insight and input of the attendees will result in your batteries being recharged for the challenges ahead.

This is not for the faint hearted or the cynical– visionaries and positive pragmatists will only be allocated seats.. You know who you are, you know whether you have the inner belief or let us unleash your potential to become a leader in the new economic order.

Tangible Success Flight 2009 is gearing up for a VERTICAL Take-off, are you ready?
