The conference is designed to help you become a more effective executive by opening doors to new perspectives and points of view allowing you - and your company - to move forward.

2015 Keynote Speaker
  • Keynote Address by Jake Wood

    Co-founder and President of Team Rubicon, and author of Take Command on leadership and molding military service for good

    Jake Wood is the Co-founder and President of Team Rubicon, a disaster relief nonprofit known for its extraordinary efforts during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Jake uses his military experience to speak about leadership in high-stakes situations. Jake is also the founder of POS REP, the first mobile, proximity-based social network designed exclusively for the veteran community. Prior to Team Rubicon, Jake served as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, with deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan as a Scout Sniper.

    He received numerous awards in combat, and was the Honor Graduate of Recruit Training, The School of Infantry and Marine Scout Sniper Course. Jake received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin, where he played four years of varsity football on a full athletic scholarship. Jake’s awards include the University of Wisconsin “Forward Under Forty” award; the Big Ten Conference’s “Live Big” award; GQ Magazine’s “Better Men, Better World” award; and in 2012 was named a CNN Hero.

    Jake's first book will be, TAKE COMMAND, offering lessons in leadership, problem-solving and teamwork from the disaster zone and the battlefield to show how to be a "first responder" in today's high-stakes, high-pressure, highly volatile business climate.
