Survivor of the plain crash in the Andes. Expert in improvement.
In 1972 Uruguayan Carlitos Páez was travelling to Santiago de Chile with the Old Christians, his rugby team, when his plane crushed in the Andes. He was 18 years old when he became one of the survivors of this accident, an adventure he revisits in his autobiographical books and that has made it to movie theaters in “Alive”.
In his conferences he uses the shocking Andean experience to help develop teamwork skills, as well as leadership and decision-making ones. Moreover, and as he describes, he found in the Andes a positive environment that took him away, for the 72 days he was there, from his personal troubles back home. Due to this, his conferences are extremely positive and Páez proves to be one of the best motivational speakers, leading his audience into living a better life.
Carlitos Páez worked for ten years as an agricultural technician until public relations and marketing made him change his career. Having worked for advertisement departments, he finally founded his own firm, Rating Publicidad. Nowadays he is the CEO of his company on communication and public relations consultancy, which he combines with his activities as speaker.
