frontman Bruce Dickinson
was officially announced as the keynote speaker at the upcoming National Leadership Summit set to take place on October 22 in Dublin, Ireland.
The one-day summit was described as a forum focused on idea exchange regarding the senior executives' engagement with "passionate and creative leadership for innovation, survival and growth."
As not only a singer, but a pilot and an entrepreneur, Dickinson is very much up for discussing his projects. His unique story and the ability to give proper parallels between music and business career will likely turn the speech into a great listen.
"While Bruce still flies a variety of aircraft, he is also the man behind aircraft maintenance company, Cardiff Aviation, a project supported - although not funded - by the Welsh government,"
reads the official website announcement
. "He hasn't stopped flying Boeing 757s or getting involved in a variety of aviation businesses, plus, more recently, developing a beer called 'Trooper' after one of the band's best-known stage-show tracks."
Iron Maiden recently topped
the Billboard Hot Tours
chart with a hefty $19 million earnings sum from 13 live shows. Metal icons were among the few guitar-driven artists in the top 10, beating the likes of Taylor Swift
, Blake Shelton
and Justin Bieber
