A child prodigy, Garry Kasparov qualified as an international chess grandmaster at just sixteen years of age. He was world champion for over fourteen years, maintaining his indomitable leadership through his seemingly unbreakable confidence achieved through brilliantly thought-out strategies that proved virtually invincible. Most famously, he pitted his talents against IBM's Deep Blue computer, which could analyse 50 billion moves in three minutes. The series still stands at one match each!
Garry's Motivational presentations highlight themes that are as decisive and strategic in the corporate world as they are in a chess match. He demonstrates how the most complex challenge in either arena can be overcome though the application of fundamental decision-driven goals, using natural cognitive resources wedded to the desire to gain the upper hand when facing one's opponent. Where appropriate, Garry is happy to demonstrate these parallels by playing up to twenty-five simultaneous games of chess with conference delegates!
