Kevin Sweeney  Keynote Speaker:  Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Sweeney (Ret.)

Pressure Cooker Confidence: How to be Resilient When the Heat is On

9:15 am - 10:15 am, Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Lt. Colonel Kevin Sweeney (Ret.) inspires audiences with his unique insights into leadership, teamwork, and how to position yourself to perform under pressure. Many speakers just talk about principles, but Kevin has personally experienced and been through the things he talks about. He spent 23 years in the Air Force and Air National Guard, attaining the rank of Lt. Colonel. The story of his combat mission team was featured in Reader's Digest, and the story was also shared on the A&E channel titled "Wings Over the Gulf." Kevin Sweeney is the only person to successfully land a KC-135, the military version of the Boeing 707 four engine jet, after two of the four engines were ripped completely off the airplane during a night combat mission in the Gulf War. A captivating storyteller and inspirational icon, Kevin shares a wealth of experience about the tools necessary for excelling when the heat is on!
