MORE ABOUT OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:
Jeff Kirkham spent almost 29 years as a Green Beret (18ZVW7/W8), with just over 8 years "boots on the ground" in Afghanistan and Iraq as a member of a counter-terrorism direct action unit. Somehow, he has managed to study six foreign languages, earn a Bachelor?s Degree of Science, write several books (with more on the way), earn multiple registered patents (one of which is the RATS Tourniquet), and manage his passion project, ReadyMan. He's also a father of two rambunctious little boys. The joke around the office is that if a Neanderthal, James Bond, and Q had a baby, it would be Jeff.
Joshua Adams is a retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant who has trained and led tens-of-thousands of high-performing teams in dynamic operations across the globe. He is the CEO of Perspective Approach, a company dedicated to providing training and tools for leaders to create organizations that profit. Joshua travels the nation training leaders and organizations on the best principles and practices to inspire other people and improve organizational results. He is happily married to his wife, Carly, and has four children from eight months to 11 years old.
