Last year’s LTB 2013 was a big hit with big-name talent.
Celebrity speakers like Kevin Harrington, a successful entrepreneur and “Shark Tank” investor, took to the stage to give keynote speeches and host brilliant breakaway sessions. Hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners learned best business practices and strategies from the best, the brightest and the most successful.
But none of those speakers have flown 1,500 miles per hour – faster than the speed of sound – in an F-16 supersonic fighter jet high above enemy territory.
This year, Lt. Col. Rob “Waldo” Waldman will break the sound barrier and raise the bar to sky-high levels at LTB 2014.
A decorated US Air Force combat pilot, renowned speaker and bestselling author, Waldman has made a name for himself by flaunting his prowess both in the air force and at the boardroom table.
Waldman (a.k.a. “The Wingman”) has an impressive 65 combat missions under his belt, including Operation Allied Force in Yugoslavia and enforcing the no-fly zone in Iraq.
So he’s a brave American hero, indeed. But what makes him a qualified corporate speaker?
The top speakers are great storytellers, and Waldman has no shortage of war stories to tell. A power speaker with hard-hitting messages to share about overcoming obstacles, leadership, facing fears and the importance of teamwork, Waldman is in-demand. He’s given keynote speeches at dozens of events hosted by the likes of companies such as Hewlett Packard, Home Depot, Verizon Wireless, Johnson & Johnson… and now Ptex Group for LTB 2014.
The author of New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Never Fly Solo, Waldman’s message never seems to fly under the radar. He was voted one of the “Top 40 under 40” business leaders in Georgia and has been featured on Fox, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, The Harvard Business Review, Investor’s Business Daily, INC. Magazine, and Business Week.
So what’s his underlying message? It’s simple: Teamwork and trust are at the core of thriving businesses.
Building a culture of trust, Waldman says, lies with your “wingmen” – the people in your life who help you to overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and achieve success.
“In business and life, you should never fly solo!”
If you think success came easy for this pilot-turned-businessman, think again. Waldman only climbed the ranks and became a respected fighter pilot after overcoming claustrophobia and, ironically, a fear of heights.
Don’t let fears or insecurities hold you back in business. Learn a thing or two from Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman at LTB 2014… he just might be the catalyst that helps your business take flight.
P.S. Don’t want to come alone? Bring along a wingman or two. It’ll make the journey toward success even more enjoyable.
