Claudio Toyama Speaks at The Prestigious Leadership Speaker Academy at West Point with Astronaut Buzz Aldrin

Claudio Toyama, CEO, and Founder of Toyama & Co, shared the stage with Astronaut Buzz Aldrin at the Leadership Speakers Academy held at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.

On October the 9th 2016 thought leaders from around the world gathered at West Point for the Leadership Speakers Academy.  The topic was Leadership, in life and business.  

The keynote speaker was Col. and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, an American engineer and a former astronaut who is working on his next mission. As the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, he was one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, and the second person to walk on it spoke about going big on his mission to Mars. He commented, “In my opinion, there is no more convincing way to demonstrate American leadership for the remainder of this century than to commit to a permanent presence on Mars, going to Mars without setting up a colony — launching only round-trip manned missions is not enough,  nor would establishing human outposts on the moon.”

The program was filled with Imagineering that included opportunity and security forecasting. Lt. General Honore’ cautioned “The next wars will be about water, not oil.  From global and domestic terrorist threats to natural disasters, we encounter new risks to our individual, community, and economic security each day.  We will need to leverage technology to deal with 7 to 10 Million people. It’s not an option, we must do it.  Imagine a plane landing at LaGuardia and the computer tells the pilot that the passenger in seat 22 has a fever. None of this is invented, and we have to live up to our ability to be innovators and dreamers.”

Toyama is the author of “Leadership The Samurai Samba Way” and President of Toyama & Co a global leadership consultancy specializing in sustainable peak performance cultures in organizations. Toyama’s acumen in leadership grew out of being multicultural and having lived in five countries. It was this rich cultural immersion that led him to create a unique proprietary model he calls the Samurai Samba Vinci Way tm .

Toyama’s personal journey and transformation from poverty and excessive debt to a life of abundance give him a unique perspective. According to Toyama, “Now I see that this time was a blessing as I looked for ways to never have to live that way again.”  Developing and mastering the Samurai Samba Vincitm principles changed everything for Toyama making him a global leader.  His client base includes a number of Global Fortune 500 companies, TED Speakers from around the world, and even a Nobel Prize winner in Physics. Toyama has taught his leadership model in 40 different countries and he is sought after by media for his expertise on a new model of leadership, “The Samurai Samba Way.”
