Title of the speech:
Business Leadership in a Time of Disruption
In the context of today’s unprecedented political uncertainty and economic upheaval, the ability to create and manage the best soft-environment is fundamental to succeed and to move forward, to grow. It may seem easy but it is often the result of real-life experiences that generate the best decision making process, and as a consequence, the best corporate strategy and eventually innovation. Massimo will describe the key characteristics that any leader, any director, any supervisor, but also any employee should have in order to avoid bad – predictable – surprises. Being able to think out of the box is an ability that anyone can nurture in everyday life, thinking disruptive is often part of an attitude that can be extremely powerful in all those situations that seem stuck, but it is important to be able to glean inspiration from many more different sources in order to move on as fast as possible. Chasing new challenges everyday represents one of the possible ways to cultivate new abilities, but it is only with a focused mind and with a leader’s vision that you will not lose control.
Massimo Tammaro is an expert about Business Strategy and Management, a leader, a communication man, an Art lover, but most of all he is a dreamer.
His professional career starts in 1998 at the Air Force Academy; he accomplished the Military Pilot Training in the USA, then he flew as Operational Fighter Pilot and as Instructor Pilot until he was selected to join the Frecce Tricolori (Italian Aerobatic Team, the largest in the world) where he became Commander (2006-2010), equivalent of CEO of a team of 120 persons. Frecce Tricolori are an autonomous squadron of the Italian Air Force representing Italian Army and supporting diplomatic and Italian industries around the world.

In fact, the “Enterprise Risk Management” is a structured and disciplined approach suitable to align strategy, people, processes, technology, and knowledge, with the aim to evaluate and manage the business risks in an integrated way, focusing on the protection and the growth of the company’s value.
