    As Rudy Giuliani began his first mayoral term, he inherited New York City awash with violence, a crumbling infrastructure and residential flight to the suburbs. A TIME magazine cover story summed up the conditions as “The Rotting of the Big Apple.” Ten years later, TIME put New York City on its cover again, but this time, with thanks in large part to Giuliani, the magazine revisited its assessment of the city—touting it as America’s safest city where economic development thrived and families flocked to live. Just when New Yorkers were beginning to enjoy the city’s revitalization, the unimaginable hit on 9-11. Giuliani swiftly marshaled his remarkable leadership skills to pull his city, and perhaps the entire nation, through the crisis. It was no accident that Giuliani was able to accomplish miracles during those grim days. In this riveting presentation, Giuliani shares with audiences:

    • His time-tested principles based on his best-selling book Leadership
    • How effective leadership can ultimately result in profitability
    • How to use these seemingly simple principles in your own life to inspire excellence from the team around you
