KEYNOTE: L. David Marquet

Captain, U.S. Navy (retired), Bestselling Author

Former U.S. Navy Captain L. David Marquet imagines a work place where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader.

David retired from the Navy in 2009, and now speaks to audiences around the globe who want to create empowering work environments that release the passion, initiative, and intellect of each person. This bold and highly effective framework is summarized as “give control, create leaders.”

David is the author of Turn the Ship Around! A True Story of Turning Followers Into Leaders.  His new book, Leadership is Language, will be released in February of 2020.
