Opening Keynote Luncheon

Featuring Carey Lohrenz, First Female F-14 Fighter Pilot

Wednesday, June 14 | 11:30 AM – 12:45 PM

Carey Lohrenz PhotoAs the first female F-14 Fighter Pilot in the U.S. Navy, Carey Lohrenz knows that it takes to win in one of the highest pressure, extreme environments imaginable. As the Opening Keynote Speaker, Lohrenz will present the fundamentals that helped her reach the cockpit and illustrate how these same fundamentals can be used to help teams succeed in business. As a pioneer in her own industry, Lohrenz has the background to effectively present tools for pushing your team and business forward.

"Playing it small serves nobody,” Lohrenz says. “Not taking a risk is one of the biggest risks that you can take."

Lohrenz has spent many years helping executives build high-performing teams, through communicated fundamentals she used while in the Navy.

Her clients include: Dell, PayPal, Toyota, Wells Fargo, Expedia, Kroger, Verizon Wireless, WalMart, CISCO, AutoZone Parts, Inc., American Heart Association and many more.
"The way Carey frames leadership is like no other," says Melissa Nall of ADT Security Services. "She delivers her amazing story with a dynamic interaction with the audience. I experienced every emotion during her presentation and felt like I was beside her in the cockpit. I left feeling alive, recharged and excited to bring her message to my team."
