In a 30-minute discussion Magnus will share his thoughts on strategy and applying lessons from the chess board to real life. Afterwards, Magnus will put his words on display, playing a 10-person "blitz," simultaneously squaring off against CEOs and global leaders, providing a firsthand look at the World Champion in action.
