When Ben Baldanza became the CEO of Spirit Airlines in 2006, the airline had cumulatively lost $350 million dollars since its inception and was quickly running out of cash. Based on a rigorous review of the business and the opportunities available, Spirit embarked on a major transformation that made it the most financially successful airline of the last decade while creating a robust growth profile.

Former CEO, Ben Baldanza shares lessons learned from this transformation and how other businesses can lead their companies to success.

 

 

 

Spirit Airlines completed what is now considered to be a highly successful IPO in 2011, but the plans to take the company public began years earlier. Ben Baldanza can explain what it took to make this happen and what changes it necessitated within the organization. Companies thinking that an IPO may be right for them can learn from his experience and lower their own risk profile.

 

 

 

Ever wonder how plane ticket prices are set? Or why some airlines charge higher baggage fees than others?

With over 30 years of experience in the commercial airline industry, Ben Baldanza gives audiences an inside look at how airlines really work!

Technology is transforming the ease and convenience of accessing a car instead of owning it, and cities are getting fed up with valuable city streets being clogged with idle parked cars and vehicles in motion holding just one person.

Zipcar, Uber and Lyft, transit apps, and autonomous vehicle pilots are all signs of the incredible disruption that is upon us.The future is going to be multi-modal, shared, and ultimately automated.

What will this future look like? How soon is it coming? What are the implications for cities and the 20% of the economy that is driven by the automotive sector?

Alan Mulally (Exclusively WSB)

In 2006, the Ford Motor Company suffered a devastating 12.7 billion dollar loss. At the time, Ford had witnessed a downgrade in stock-value and its brand mismanaged; however, under the leadership of a newly appointed president and CEO, Alan Mulally, the organization saw a remarkable return to profitability and was later in fact the only American car manufacturer to not accept a bailout from the United States government.  With Mulally’s vision and commitment, Ford was able to recommit itself to quality, develop a comprehensive strategy and implement a new sense of identity. His renowned leadership skills transformed Ford into one of the world’s leading automobile companies and the #1 automobile brand in the United States. Mulally expounds on his strategic leadership and inspires audience members to explore their own set of skills as they apply to and enhance their organization.
