A cruise for the Titanic Centennial Memorial allowed Raed and his daughters to retrace the original route of the historic legviathan. Centrals lessons of this catastrophe remain relevant until today. The presentation will reflect on what Raed and his family learned from diverse failures in leadership that caused the sinking of the largest, fastest and most luxurious (and assummedly "unsinkable") ship of its time. We owe it to the 1503 who lost their lives to learn such lessons lest they be repeated: in shipping and in other walks of life such as business, governance and personal activities.
