I traveled to Aix en Provence ("Aix," pronounced "ex") in the south of France to present at the Third European Conference for High Reliability Organizations 5-6 November 2013. It was held at the newly opened (six months before the conference) Bouches-du-Rhone Fire Training School (EDSP) in Velaux, France. I have posted a few details about the trip to my family blog. I presented an interactive session focused on a High Reliablity view of the loss of the USS THRESHER (Apr 1963) and the fire aboard the USS MIAMI (May 2012). Here are links to the files I presented, the powerpoint and the speaker's notes. I have notes on the conference (in progress) in case anyone wants to read them.
