We have a rare treat for you on this show. We'll explore leadership in the fast lane and on a world scale. Today we're taking on motorsports racing, rising above your education, avoiding being thrown overboard on oil tankers, meeting world leaders and feeling the inspiration of leaders like Nelson Mandela. Are you intriqued? Then join me as we talk with Alex Robertson.

Born in Edinburgh the Capitol of Scotland. Educated there.  My first real job was as a cadet officer (deck) on Shell Tankers. I sailed half the way around the world before I was 17.  I have lived as an adult in Five Continents: In Scotland, Holland, South Africa (pre and post-Apartheid), Namibia, Swaziland, Australia, People’s Republic of China and now USA.

 I managed the development of the world’s first digital set-top-box (STB) that went into the international markets; the first professional video over internet protocol (IP) edge gateway – which is used in nearly all sports stadiums in the US and Canada today to carry the TV signal out of the stadiums.

I used to fly physically around the world every eight to twelve weeks for almost ten years.  I have met and done business directly with many Prime Ministers and leading world industrialists.  I am CEO of my third successful business and love helping start-up and middle size companies (business turn-around).

I have played top level rugby in Scotland and South Africa.  I played my last game at 48 in France.  I have raced cars professionally in Scotland, England, Europe, South Africa and in NASCAR in the USA.  I love wine, art, nature and beautiful ladies!
