About our Speaker: Sgt. Keni Thomas

“Blackhawk Down” is a well-documented and historically significant battle that has inspired Americans for many years. But what if you could hear the story straight from someone who was there on the streets that day? What would you want to learn and how could it help you? When you discover first-hand what makes soldiers willingly put their lives on the line for each other, then you begin to understand what it takes for you to do the same. If leading by example is something that is important to you, then you will want to hear what Keni Thomas has to say about combat.

Keni’s unique ability to tell an engaging story takes you into the moment showing you how the hard lessons learned during the worst of times, can make each of us a better leader, capable of greatness. “When lives are on the line, and so much is at stake, all we really fight for is each other” says Thomas.

As you follow Sgt. Thomas and his squad through the battle, you begin to see yourself in men like Private David Floyd and Specialist Melvin Dejesus. You begin to understand how important you are to those on your left and right. You will discover a new understanding of what it really means to be counted on and to set an example for others to follow. Your team becomes motivated to train as they fight, fight as they train and create leaders at every level. Your troops will go back to work and back to their families feeling a little more extraordinary and a lot more capable of being the leader you know they can be.
