Er zijn vele gelijkenissen tussen "zaken doen" en schaken. Ook vandaag is dit nog relevant. Schaken was historisch
al populair bij grote leiders als Napoleon en is een uitstekende leerschool voor strategisch inzicht en tactische
wendbaarheid. Vele elementen die nuttig zijn in het schaken kunnen ook gebruikt worden bij het nemen van
beslissingen in het bedrijfsleven. Voorbereiding en planning, het kennen van je tegenstrevers en concurrenten,
flexibiliteit, geduld en volharding, verdedigen van de ingenomen positie, aanval op meerdere fronten, dit zijn maar
een aantal facetten die kunnen leiden tot succes zowel aan het schaakbord als in de zakenwereld. Met trots
associeert Eastman zich daarom met deze tactische en strategische sport.
