“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
Where the ‘Unsinkable’ Titanic Sank
Looking for something unusual to do this summer? How about exploring the remains of the Titanic from an Mir submersible vehicle at 12,500 feet below sea level? Fifteen-day excursions will begin July 12, July 27 and August 6 and will include lectures and a ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking. The per-person cost ($66,257 for submarine divers, $12,498 for non-submarine divers) also covers pre- and post-expedition tours in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and St. John’s, Newfoundland. For more information, contact Kensington Tours at (888) 903-2001.
Want to explore the Titanic without getting wet? Visit the renovated Harlan and Wolf Shipyards, a $100 million state-of-the-art attraction on the site in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the “unsinkable” vessel was built and launched. Multimedia exhibits focus on the Titanic’s construction and sinking and a live video link lets you view the wreck on the ocean floor. Additional reasons to visit Northern Ireland include the Giant’s Causeway, a World Heritage Site; the charming Antrim Coast; historic castles and castle hotels; first-rate golf courses; and, of course, plenty of Guinness.
