Dominik Neidhart, sailor in Team Alinghi, winner of the XXXI America's Cup, works according to the motto "go hard or go home". He describes in an impressive way how he brought the America's Cup to Europe for the first time with the Swiss Team Alinghi. Few people are really aware of the extreme situations that a team on a high-tech yacht has to face. There are hardly any similar challenges whose success or failure depends so much on the highly demanding performance and reliability of each individual team member. In his presentation, Dominik Neidhart analyzes the key success factors of Team Alinghi and uses this exemplary crew to show how top performance can also be achieved in the world of business. When he is not involved in a sailing project, he supports companies as a systemic organizational consultant in developing the full potential of their teams. As an expert in team excellence, he inspires his audience with his lively and pictorial style of presentation.
