Mesa, Ariz. May 7, 2013 – Chief Richard Picciotto, the highest-ranking firefighter to survive the World Trade Center collapse, will deliver the keynote address at RES California at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California on Tuesday, June 18, 2013. Picciotto is scheduled to speak Tuesday during the opening general session from 8-9 am about his experience during 9/11 and his tale of survival.
Firefighter and inspirational speaker Richard Picciotto, a former FDNY Battalion Commander on September 11, 2001, rushed inside the World Trade Center to assist victims. He was subsequently found trapped in the smoldering rubble of the North Tower following its collapse. After four hours trapped beneath the debris he emerged the highest-ranking firefighter to survive the attacks.
“Chief Picciotto’s story struck a chord with the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development team. His presentation about leadership and teambuilding is most beneficial to any organization and we know attendees won’t help but feel the power in his awe-inspiring tale of survival,” says events marketing manager Jim Norris, Jr.
Picciotto is the author of “Last Man Down,” a harrowing recount of his strength, determination, and survival during the North Tower collapse on 9/11. The New York Times best selling book is a tribute to the 343 firefighters and 2,400 civilians lost on that tragic day of infamy.
In addition to the keynote address, RES California will feature a variety of activities aimed at fostering small business, enterprise, and leadership development, an exhibitor’s trade show, an American Indian artisan market and the opportunity to meet with with many business leaders from across the country.
The theme of RES California is “Sustaining Economic Momentum,” and the activities will begin with the, “National Center Golf Classic” at the beautiful, Journey at Pechanga Golf Resort on June 17, 2013.
