Industry Breakfast Keynote Speaker
Engaged leader, hands-on crisis management practitioner and a go-to global security expert for major news networks, the former Commander of the USS Cole demonstrates the foundation for team success and time-critical decisions based on integrity.
Commander Kirk Lippold reveals how to lead teams to manage challenges and ensure success in a complex world where financial, security and global threats are of critical concern across industry sectors.
CDR Lippold was in command of the USS Cole when it was targeted by a deadly al Qaeda terrorist attack in 2000, 11 months before 9/11. His team training prior to the attack and unflappable leadership after galvanized his crew to action, resulting in lives and the ship being saved.
A compelling storyteller, CDR Lippold draws upon his Five Pillars of Leadership to offer strategies he learned and applied to instill integrity into his team members and mitigate crises throughout his naval career. With takeaways for organizations on assessing their own successes and failures to prepare for what the future may hold, his lessons learned can make the difference when it matters most.
