Last PIRATE Summit, we finally got an opera singer to perform right before the Burn.
The mood was a bit different from what we had planned.
Everybody was hyped up and ready to party, and Manuel had a 12-minute speech prepared.
He wanted to talk about “No BS”, our third house rule.
It’s the key to understanding why we started PIRATE Summit in the first place, and a catalyst for creating meaningful connections.
Not a topic that easily goes with a party crowd.
Luckily, Kai – the opera singer – was prepared and powerfully set the mood.
Here is the transcript of the speech, slightly edited and shortened for better readability.
