The Five Pillars of Real Leadership

This is more than just a seminar on leadership.

Greatness Awaits You – The Five Pillars of Real Leadership shows how you can take your first steps towards greatness, both personally and professionally as one cannot exist without the other.

We have seen thought and action evolve throughout human history and once again we are at a point where we need to change. We need a new way of thinking about Leadership, Strategy and Innovation.

As Abraham Lincoln said in an address to Congress in December 1862,

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.”

Now is the time - we must change. As our world changes, so must you. As others seek to take control, so must you fight to take it back. As our fight to succeed endures so must you find the strength within to prevail.

As with any well planned military campaign, it is up to you to plan your direction with the gifts you have been blessed with, have been burdened with or have struggled for.

It is now time to find how you can make them fit and excel within a changing world.

This seminar is a unique combination of practical step by step guidance woven together by profound philosophical insights, and it is the result of over four decades of hard won experience and training in business, government and the military.

It describes with uncommon clarity the process of becoming a Real Leader.

It will help you reach your highest potential so that you can inspire others to follow you, to harness and focus their talents in order to create a better life, a better nation and a better world.


A Western Christian Living and Working in the Muslim World


Between 2009 and 2014, Riccardo lived in the United Arab Emirates and with his team trained UAE Special Forces soldiers to
fight the war on terror in Afghanistan.

During this time, his wife gave birth to their two daughters and raised their family in
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE

This is a rare opportunity  to hear the opinions and insights of one who has recently lived and worked in the Middle East.

Make the time to attend this compelling and timely event.

You'll be very glad you did.

Can you imagine what would it be like to live, and work in the Middle East? Are the images and stories we receive through the news accurate or are they a distortion of the truth?

Can the divide between the Christian West and Muslim Middle East ever really be bridged or is this a fool’s errand’?

On a more personal level, what would you learn from such an experience and what would be the insights you would want to share in order to inform Australia’s future engagements.


The best talk we've ever had.

Thank you so much for speaking so frankly and saying what we're afraid to say out loud.

I just wanted to say thanks mate. Fantastic.

Why can't our politicians in Canberra say
what you say?
