A real-life account of how Greg Gadson helped build an organization from scratch, and through his personal leadership style, inspired the soldiers that ultimately saved his life.

How the lessons of an athlete translate to life lessons in the service and in organizations of all sizes and missions. Greg Gadson illustrates the importance of developing and maintaining a culture of excellence through an ethos of personal accountable, fostering consistent organizational habits and working as a team to achieve great results.

Overcoming adversity implies we have come through some difficulties and everything turned out okay. We are looking at adversity as a negative. However, prevailing through the challenge means we look at the adversity as a positive. A purposeful challenge meant for us to learn and grow from, not just overcome, but to prevail—coming out better than we were before. Greg Gadson shares how his challenges have led him to the unexpected: winning two Super Bowl rings, acting in a movie and just taking on life’s challenges.

Peter Gamwell delivers dynamic and relevant keynote presentations on a variety of topics pertaining to leadership, creativity and learning. Whether your organization is involved with education, business, government or not-for-profit, he can work with you to customize a half-day or full-day workshop tailored to your specific needs and organizational goals.

Audiences are delighted and energized by Peter’s unique style. He does not pretend to have all the answers.

  • What do healthy organizations look like? What have you already done that has started to create this atmosphere

  • What are the conditions needed to draw out people’s unique creative capacities
  • What practical and implementable strategies can we put in place today, next week and in the coming year to foster healthier organizational environments?

By working together to find the answers to these questions and others like them, your organization will find the passion for lifelong and creative learning.

In this lively and engaging presentation built around questions, ideas and stories, you’ll learn easily implemented and practical ways to catalyze and spark dialogue, learning and productive actions specific to your situation. In our complex, bureaucratic age, find out how you can transform your organization to embrace the new creative age.

  • What are the conditions for optimal learning and creativity to flourish? Peter will show you how to think through this crucial question—and suggests ways to move forward when the inevitable pushback occurs to organizational change.
    Learn about organizations that have successfully fostered creative learning cultures and find out we can learn from them.

Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

Robert Gates will speak to a wide variety of domestic and global issues and engage in a Q&A session with the audience.

Topic areas include:

  • Global Politics and U.S. Foreign Policy
  • U.S. Intelligence, Defense Strategies and Global Cybersecurity Threats
  • Leadership, Negotiation and Conflict Resolution

Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation, Dr. Gates shares his views about the most pressing threats to global stability and America’s security. He focuses on his experience dealing with these issues as defense secretary under presidents Bush and Obama—an experience recounted vividly in his recent best-selling book, Duty.  He draws heavily on his memoir sharing his views on the way America's government—White House, cabinet agencies, and Congress—works, and too often does not work. We face one of the most complex, dangerous and uncertain international environments today. From rising military tensions with Russia and China, multiple conflicts in the Middle East and the threat of ISIS, to dicey trade relations and economic challenges confronting Europe, Dr. Gates foresees a generation of conflict, and predicts we will continue to face the most challenging international environment since the Cold War for some time to come.
