Keynote Speaker: Lt. General Russel L. Honoré (Ret.), Commander of Joint Task Force Katrina & Global Preparedness Authority

"Don't Get Stuck on Stupid... Leadership in Action"

As the commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, he became known as the “Category 5 General” for his striking leadership style in coordinating military relief efforts in post-hurricane New Orleans. A decorated 37-year army veteran and global authority on leadership and emergency preparedness, Gen. Honoré now shares his no-nonsense approach to getting the job done by showing organizations how to successfully lead and execute a mission.

Drawing on his in-the-trenches experience managing conflicts of both the natural and man-made variety, his disciplined leadership takeaways inspire audiences in a range of fields, including business, management, government, military and education. 
Authentic, uplifting and never “stuck on stupid,” Gen. Honoré delivers a bracing dose of candor with real-world leadership lessons that will equip audiences with a mindset of global preparedness and instill confidence in tomorrow’s leaders.
